I think we can all agree it's been a week for the record here in the USA.
No matter where you stand on politics, it's touched us all.
This blog is my personnel space. A place where I can go to escape and really live the life I choose. I choose to "like" people and make my life the best I can make it for me...hopefully inspiring a few along the way.
So, when it turned ugly with the elections here this year, I turned to my favorite escape.
Little did I know, that when Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts
offered up this quilt along,
it was actually going to save me from all the crazy in the world.
Little did I know that as the crazy really blossomed, those tiny little
paw-prints were going to save me!
Yep, I put the petal to the metal and blocked out all that was going on around me. Probably a good 10-12 hours was spent on Tuesday pretending that the world wasn't there. Just me and my Modern Bear Paw...
It was a good day, in my sewing room anyway!
I jumped out of bed on Wednesday and put this guy on the longarm.
Nice thing about the longarm is, that it really blocks out the noise from the TV. I know shutting the TV off works too... but that's no motivation to finish this guy up.
As I look at it completed, I'm so happy that I was able to find the fabrics from Northcott.
Hey Northcott, you need to re-release these beauties.
I was asleep at the wheel when they first came out I guess.
Now that I've seen them, I want more more more!
I think I have a new wall paper for my computer now too.
"Sew" you see...
it's not been that bad of a week...
it's all in how you look at things!

A big thanks Lorna for saving my sanity
and providing us all, with this fabulous pattern!
Now I'm getting ready for the next big piecing event!
These look familiar to anyone?
