It’s a mothy time of year.

Every time we open the front door, one of them sneaks in…only to die a few days later somewhere in the apartment.

Day 350

image

My first large quilt is finally done!!  I do have to give credit to Melissa Phillips at CO-Z-Quilts (https://www.facebook.com/CoZQuilts).  She did an amazing job finishing it for me.

I was able to get the piecing done, the whole thing basted, and the pattern drawn on before I started struggling with the actually quilting process and setting it aside for almost 2 years. 

A few weeks ago, I pulled it back out again and decided to have someone finish it for me.

I am so pleased with the way it turned out!  I can’t wait to finish one completely by myself now!

Day 349

image

As the days get closer to an end, for this project, I get sadder each day.  It reminds me of when I set out to fold 1,000 paper cranes, and did. 

After I finally completed my goal, I was lost.  My routine, how I filled my free time, was now empty.  What I decided then was to fold another 1,000 cranes, and did.

So I’m asking myself, now what?  Do I do the same thing again this time.  Do I commit to another 365 days?

Or do I dive in further and ask myself why, why do I feel sad that it’s almost over.  I should feel excited that I’m about to complete an amazing adventure, and enjoy the results.

I’ve realized that I love moments like tonight.  Time taken out of my ordinary, everyday routine life to look within or ask questions.  The photography is fun too don’t get me wrong, but I think I enjoy the blog aspect way more than I realized. 

I’ve never been much or a writer, although I’ve always wanted/attempted to keep a journal.  This has been, by far, my most successful journal.  And it’s public, eeks!

I guess we’ll see where this journey leads me, and what’s around the corner.

Day 348

Looooong day.

Day 347

image

So, today was a “long shift” day at work…and boy oh boy was it! 

I. Am. Beat.

Because of that, today’s pic is an oldie, but a goodie.  This was taken up in Chattanooga on Mother’s day. 

I love this picture of the two of us! :)

Day 346

image

I’ve always loved having a wall of inspirations/memories.  Photos of good times and people , quotes that make me feel something, and all things creative.

I don’t always have time to “be creative”, but I’m always drawn to it.  I guess that’s why I started this project in the first place…to allow myself at least a few minutes a day to “be creative”.

I may not always succeed, in my opinon, but I’ve managed to do something for 346 days now!! 

That’s something.
