So to beat the heat outside I decided to work in my clutter mind of quilting. LOL. I started to sew together my 14 scrappy calico & white block for my HT swap. After having the high winds smash my left hand in the van door, I'm still feeling the effects of the bruising & swelling. So I am doing simple nine-patch blocks in order to fulfill my obligation. So NOT the block I wanted to do, but you do what you got to do. Here there are in the pile waiting for the sewing machine all pinned together.

If you know me in a true sense, you know I LOVE Hand work of any form. Well in my last post I gave ya a sneak peek at my fishing theme table runner with the Green Red work in the center blocks....... last night I finished the 2nd block.

What you think? Can You picture it in your mind? Does it inspire you to go outside your box? That box doesn't have to be a big box..... maybe it be small box that can hold a small wall hanging. It's more of a case of opening yourself creatively. Did you ever just doodle on a piece of paper in school? While on the phone? It's kind of like that.....you would be surprise what you find out about yourself when you let go. And there can be a lot of things to let go of.... the rules, worrying about what other people think about it, the thought of losing control the pattern, etc. So you do want to join me for the journey? It's could be interesting.

This will be an thread challenge for myself.... just to see what I could pull it off. if you haven't figured it out.... I'm not much for following the quilting crowd. I tend to wander off in my own direction, bellowing out the tunes and boogieing my self down the line. My "Mama" always did say not only did I NOT follow the Drummer ~ I went to a whole 'nother galaxy. LOL ... I guess she meant that I never had to worry about always conforming to other peoples ideas.
Well I guess it's time to wrap this up for the week. There is meatloaf to make for Tomorrow. But remember if you strive to be different ..... it's not necessarily a bad thing.
