I did finish Clue 3 this week, it literally became my therapy.
Our community lost one our brightest stars this week and the daughter of some of our best friends. To the Flu. There are no words to express our pain at losing this borrowed angel.
Shannon was 17, a Senior, healthy, bright, smart, a talented artist, had college plans in place and walked with faith. She was kind, well loved and was always the person to ask what she could do for someone else. We are so grateful that we had the privilege of knowing you in your short time on the earth. The world will be just a little darker without you here.
Between cooking, running errands for the family and just sitting with them, I did retreat to the studio.
That being said, here is what got me through the hardest times this week. Sitting in the studio and just sewing.
I did not have very much of the greens( because I use them in many quilts) I wanted and so found myself stealing from other projects, charm packs and jelly rolls to get the variety I so craved. Guess I will have to go shopping now, bummer! lol I was determined to make this quilt from only stash and so far so good. I hope Bonnie would be proud.
Here they are all lined up and I am so happy with my choices and is it Friday yet?
Now for the GIVEAWAY. If I get 25 comments on my blog by Thursday when the Linky closes, I will draw a random comment and the winner will receive this.
This is from my personal library. When I asked for Bonnie books, apparently people listened and I have several of some of her books! Nice to know family listens.
Let me know if you are doing Bonnie"s colors or if you strayed as I did.
I also got to "Pay it Forward" this week. On the Quiltville's Open Studio FB page, another quilter was looking for fabric that was no longer available. I knew I had it as I had auditioned it as one of my purples. It did not work for mine but it did for hers and popped it in the mail! ...and in digging for greens came across another piece of it, so in the mail it goes. So glad I could help another quilter!
While you are waiting make sure you check out all the wonderful hysteria for the Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt on Bonnie's page! Right Here.... GIMQ Link Up. Amazing!
