This winter I started a new quilt project, because that is what we all should do in the winter. Nest, be cozy, start big projects and drink tea.
I’m using the hexagon shape and paper piecing, a slow hand-stitching process I like. I think this quilt will be in subtle pinks and browns… And I know it will be a long term project. It’s already resting, but I’ve got a whole lot of cut paper pieces and some fabrics in a pile that I might use. Not really thinking about it right now, but looking at these photos I’m dreaming of how beautiful it will be – one day.
Did you know that Sustainable happiness, happiness that is more permanent, unchangeable from external events, come from three keys: good friends, good family, and long-term projects, according to one Yale professor Bloom. And this one is looong-term project perfect to sew on among family and friends, but don’t expect progress this month. ;-)
