Quilting: My Two Blocks

We all run into bumps in the road. I feel I fell into a ditch and have had a time getting out of it. I think it started with a Mercury Retrograde. For those of you who don’t know what that is — it is very similar to Murphy’s Law: what can go wrong — will go wrong.

Usually it has to do with Mercury the Messenger in Astrology. This condition occurs four times throughout the year. I always mark my calendar in January so I know when it will occur.  If you start a project during this time you can be pretty certain you won’t finish it.

It seems I started organizing my workroom space during a Mercury Retrograde. It has also occurred to me that is the only time I get back to working on organizing it.

Last organizational spurt a small piece of fabric (10″ x  20″) turned up on my work table. I kept shifting fabrics around still there it was. It kept coming up to the surface. So I thought there must be a message here — guess I am just a little slow sometimes. So I measured it and I could cut it into 4 1/2 inch squares. I thought it would be perfect in the center of some Sawtooth stars. It was one of the first patterns I fell in love with so many years ago.

I made TWO stars. It was 4 o’clock in the afternoon and just about dinner time. There is not need to rush this.

It’s a beginning.

  1. It’s a lovely start. Seeing as how we’re zooming into the end of the year slide (it will be here before we know it). I’m proud you got two squares together. Keep up the good work.
