Chasing the blues away
Sometimes things happen and they create chinks in the bubble of your happiness when lots of chinks happen they create a crack and allow the blues to flood in . . . .
What is a sad and blue patchworker to do
but chase the blues away
with a little fabric therapy and creating something new
I always think that yellow is the colour of happiness, like a bright sunny day
And the lovely blue green floral fabric just made me smile.
Victoria ( the sewing machine) and I worked hard together as I stitched, pressed and top stitched away to create something new and full of sunny happiness.
tah dah, a beautiful new mug bag, thanks to Red Brolly for the gorgeous pattern
I am always so impressed when designers offer gorgeous free patterns. They have wonderful souls
My lovely husband understood my need to create and left me to my own devices and cooked a lovely dinner for me whilst I stitched away. My gorgeous daughter did some washing and ironing to relieve any guilt.
A bright and happy bag, to make me smile
I did nt realise when I started this pattern, that this was the very same bag that cardygirl had made just recently, she obviously shares my good taste . . . Lol
My new bag on it s first outing, was much admired
I spent the evening with a lovely group of ladies (Novocastrian quilters) who made me laugh and smile, as fellow quilters always do
And I am feeling a lot brighter and whilst the last wisps of blues remain, for me there is nothing like creating to make the world seem a better place.

And the shadows will fall behind you"
"I hope your hands are working on a project that you love"
