Tonight after work I played with charms. In May, I had several May for Me Giveaways of the Quilter's Blenders Charm Packs. I had so much fun laying out all sorts of arrangements.
This was one of my favorite.
Do you remember I started to pick them up in order and then I just mixed them up. Then I had planned to sew them together in a scrambled order, but when I sat down to sew them I got another idea.
First I am going to sew them together in pairs. There are 14 multi colored prints and there are 14 yellows. I paired those up first.
Then I just paired up the rest of them, but I ended up with 2 Ocean Blues. I grabbed another Purple and took out one of Ocean Blues.
Next, I paired the yellow/multi charms with the others to make 4 patches.
All of the four patches will have a yellow and multicolored print.
It will give it more of a scrambled look.
They need to be pressed/ironed. This is a work in progress. Tomorrow or Thursday, I am going to cut them all at an angle and put a twist on the blocks.
I can't wait! I love when I take time to play! Some days it's only for a few minutes, but I am taking time to enjoy something I love to do!
This evening, as I re sized photos and wrote this post and my container garden post, I listened to an old concert of Peter, Paul, and Mary. It was their 25th Anniversary Concert from 22 years ago in 1990. I wasn't playing, but I was listening to songs that brought back so many memories of the good old days. One of my favorite songs is Leaving on a Jet Plane. When my children were babies, (in the 80's), I would sing these songs to them at bedtime. Remember Puff the Magic Dragon? How about Weave Me the Sunshine? I am sharing the links just in case you want to take a moment to listen to them. You can sing along with them!
Take time to play - even if it is only for a few minutes!
