Happiness Delayed

I've been gone a while.  I know.  It's not that I haven't done any sewing -- quite the opposite actually.  With QuiltCon prep (as in handmade wardrobe making), sewing samples for the studio, and finishing up other commitments, I find myself more and more on Instagram and less and less in blogland.

However, in the midst of late nights, flakes of snow and cups of coffee, I did manage to finish two verrrrrry late projects: quilts for the Happiness Circle of Do. Good Stitches. 

In May of 2014 (I know! sooooooo long ago), I asked my group for improv blocks in white with accents of navy, bright pink, aqua and mustard yellow.  I finally got around to putting them together and quilting them and will be sending the finished quilt off to someone who could use a little extra love and comfort right now.

In September of 2014 (ok...not sooooooo long ago), I asked my group for feathers and arrows as well as any leftover pieced scraps in a palette of teal, mustard yellow and brown against low-volume fabrics. The colours feel very warm and masculine to me and I love the way the feathers, arrows and improv-pieced scraps work together.

To make a long story short, both of these quilts are delayed. Both are for the Happiness Circle of Do. Good Stitches and both will soon be wrapped around some very special people.


  1. I have compiled five of the best happiness quotes that can enlighten some of our deepest concerns and longings. There's no doubt you already know some of these things.

  2. have always believe in the power of affirmation, I wanted it to be simple and present, as in this moment.
