Something Old

Let's keep it real today.

The other day I posted my Something New.

However,

I feel guilty because I have Something Old

that I should be working on right now!



Yes...that is my stack of 50 flowers

for my "Old Grandmother's Flower Garden" quilt!

Hmmm...I think I started it in 2008!

(Just keeping it real!)





I love my Old project,

but,

I LOVE my new project!



Here is the old project with the new project in the back

(closest to where I always sit at my worktable)!

Someday I will revist my Old Project!



On another note:

If you want a REALLY good cry to put things into perspective,

visit here and bring the tissues!


 Now I am off the pick up the Little Person up from school

and I think that we will get ice cream at the local ice cream shop!

Just Because!


Until Next Time...Happy Quilting

I hear ya - I have chosen a new hexagon project in favor of an older one . . . . I know I will finish them both - someday *s*

Cindy said...

I have been choked up - the good kind - the memory kind - the kind of memory that only a parent can cherish.

Thank you, Stephanie.

YOU have touched my heart - with this You Tube video...

Why, you ask, am I so deeply choked up? Because you had me "remembering" our daughter who passed away many years ago at the tender age of 12.

Simply - thank you.

Thank you for sharing this wonderful video with me. It is so flippin true and perhaps is exactly what I needed. My 20 year old is off to college and my 16 year old argumentative as bedroom door closes....
I always say it all goes so darned quickly....I hope you shared that ice cream.

These look great...old or not! They're a lot of work, Stef.

I still need to do my hexagon block for Christina's quilt a long. The technique looks scary to me so I keep putting it off. I am sure once I try it I will laugh about it :)Are they easy or difficult to make?
