I saw a post on Desert Sky Quilting that had me intrigued with the thought of doing another fun scrappy project. You know what it’s like when the squirrels start doing their dance around you and won’t let up until you drop everything and make it? That’s what happened to me – the attack of the squirrels. 😉
I started with my scrap bin 2 1/2” squares and started chain sewing.
In just a few hours I had steps 1-6 done.
The next day Joy put out an email with the next step and this happened;
Another day and another step….
Now I’m waiting for border suggestions and just need to decide how big this one needs to be. Should I add another row or two? Is it telling me it needs to be queen size or even a king?
This has been a perfect project to help me stay calm with the crazy world we live in. As I sewed the bits together I was reminded of the many quilts these bits were left over from.
Happy memories soothe the soul and stop me from being concerned as I see the number of new Covid cases increasing in Mexico where my son and his family live, the numbers in America increasing so drastically in so many stars, more cases of police wrongdoing, more misinformation on the social media sites I am on.
Things need to change. Our world is in a position where drastic measures and decisions have to be made. Police budgets need to be cut and the monies reallocated to social programs, re-educating and training police officers to diffuse situations, combat style equipment needs to be taken away from our police members. We need to listen and learn about the realities of the lives of all people in this world. The list can go on and on.
In the meantime, we quilt and create to try to add some beauty and bright colour to our world.
This post was written to link with Sandra from MMM Quilts, a fellow Canadian who has been a great inspiration to me to quilt and to speak up.
I will admit that not one, but two other squirrel attacks happened! I can’t show them right now because they are part of the secret sewing going on for some upcoming blog hops. One of them is Sandra from MMM Quilts fault but that credit will be explained at a later date. 🤫
Thank you for spending some time with me, reading my post. What are you doing today to keep yourself from unravelling? Please keep well, keep safe and keep your masks on. 😄 Carol
