Making and doing and crafting. I'm better when I'm doing it. Or have done it a little each day at least. Better? A better wife. Better mother. Better daughter, sister and friend. My mind settles. Solves problems. Works it out.

And this citrus plant? One of my best craft accomplishments this winter. It's blooming.

Guess what?!! One of my quilty pals came into the shop yesterday with a copy of your book that she won from The Fat Quarter Shop. She showed me that you had signed it AND she asked me to sign it next to my ZipIt!!:)

Same here Dana. I always seem more settled, complete when I'm crafting and making something that has been stirring around in my head. : )

Loving your projects! I definitely feel at loose ends when I am not doing.

gah, i'm in somesort of non-crafting rut and don't even want to look at the fabric. but there is a giant sale at the local store tomorrow and i'm thinking i'll brave the crowds just to escape my family... so maybe? maybe i'll find inspiration to take action!! :) even if the action begins with a 20 dollah bill. :)

Amen to that :) I need to be creative. Can't imagine not crafting something as part of my daily life. It does calm your soul and so wonderful to have homemade things in my home. I have a few UFO"s because if it :) Love your little Alphabet sampler. Thanks for sharing.

Crafts are awesome. I like the work you are doing on the NC sampler. Sweet.

I don't know what I'd do if it weren't for crafting to keep me sane and grounded.
