The April Showers Mug Rug Blog Hop ended on Thursday and Mr. Random was called upon to choose a winner for my giveaway of a Soaked Layer Cake and coordinating backing/binding fabrics. Abby is the lucky winner and I will be mailing a package to her in Australia on Monday. Congratulations Abby!HERE. Your comments were really helpful and gave me valuable perspective on the situation. I hadn't given much thought to how it would feel to rip apart both quilts (I knew it would be tedious!)... and I do think it would just keep me in an unhappy mood every night as I unpick them. So I am going to finish them as they are and, most importantly, MOVE ON!
I found a bin of baggies down in the laundry room closet that weren't on my original list. Most of them were projects I was working on shortly before I fell and broke my leg so I'm thinking my Mom must have packed them up and put them away for me. Adding those to the mix moves my starting point from 94 to 101 and puts me at an even 60 to complete.
Why asimplelife? This goes back to when I exited the corporate world during my extended bout of clinical depression and moved to Northern Minnesota. My goal was to make life simpler and find joy again. I read a lot about simplicity and that concept is still very appealing to me. I used to sell mosaic tiles on eBay under the name a.simple.life and I've used it as my ID on quilting forums and boards for years.
