A Stroll in the Garden

― Suzy Kassem, Rise Up and Salute the Sun: The Writings of Suzy Kassem

 

“You can be a flower in somebody’s garden or a pig or the sunshine or a crow or a nightingale! Be something nice in someone else’s garden.”

In nature everything is valuable, everything has its place. The rose, the daisy, the lark, the squirrel, each is different but beautiful. Each has its own expression. Each flower its’ own fragrance. Each bird its’ own song. So you too have your own unique melody. – Diane Dreher

July OMG 2018

Time to be bold and announce my new goal for July.  

I’m not really going to be all that bold this month, since I am making time for family and sunny days!

I will be piecing three 5 inch blocks for the Squared Away Sampler project.  You can see my progress so far this year by clicking here.

My next goal for the month is to make progress on my President’s book.  Nope, not the President of the United States, but blocks that were given to me for serving my term as a quilt guild president.

I left off turning the blocks into pages for a fabric memory book that I can use for a keepsake.  You can see that post from one year ago here.  (It is a coincidence that I worked on this project in July last year, and have chosen it as my project for July this year.)

President's Blocks

I believe I have 36 pages to quilt.  They shouldn’t take long, and they wouldn’t, if it was winter and I could stay in my cozy home all day long (which I can’t because of the day job).  But it is summer, and the sunshine calls, so I am making this easy on myself.  I am going to quilt six pages for the month.

Speaking of sunshine, there will be time for strolling in the garden!
