a life so peachy
Office worker by day, crafter by night.
I am always making things and am constantly inspired by the beautiful things around me.
About my square...
I jumped into the quilt project on a whim and I am so glad I did! In the beginning I had lots of ideas; words, a nude, a chair were among the top contenders. I decided words would be me but didn't want to do just any old words.
I searched for inspiration and found it in some heirloom tablecloths and doilies, flickr, fairy bread and wanting to do something 'different' and non-traditional. In negative seemed like a fun idea; random single stitches creating the outline of the words, starting small and getting bigger and more spaced out towards the edges.
In the beginning "oh golly gosh!" seemed like an appropriate quote in the context of the quilt. In the end, it summed up how I felt! I greatly underestimated the time that all those little stitches would take but I am so very happy with the finished piece and that I have been a part of this wonderful project.
