"Whatever your hands find to do, verily do it with all your might" Ecclesiastes 9-10

Even my friend Lucille Ball could not believe her eyes ... :>)

A wonderful friend had sent to me a small size Bowtie plastic template. I thought this was the opportunity to make my first-ever small quilt.

It's 15 inches square, each block measuring 2.5", finished.
Hand pieced - Hand quilted,
and certainly not the last one !

Some other works are on their way to the "Finish" line... but I still can't show them until the recipients find them in their mailboxes. :>)

Thank you
so much, dear friends, for all your wonderful emails and comments. Though I'm keeping saving time from the computer, and blogging much less than before, I still cherish your friendship and find much inspiration, visiting you !

Gratitudes :

- Big projects for retirement,
- A better organization,
- Time managing and simplifying,
- Inspiring reading,
- Fun mail from special, spoiling friends.


Voluntary simplicity means going fewer places in one day, rather than more.
Seeing less, so I can see more,
Doing less, so I can do more,
Acquiring less, so I can have more.
