Standard Time

I love this time of year—crisp, clean air. Beautiful mornings. Repeating an hour when we "fall back" to Standard Time.


This year I spent that golden hour pinning together the layers of the project you see here. I pieced the top several years ago, and now I'm going to quilt it. I am trying so hard to become a woman who finishes things.

Old people tell you how fast time flies. I used to brush that off, thinking I had plenty left. I don't. No one does. Not even on Standard Time.

Must you remind me? I never finish anything having to do with a sewing machine, except maybe a flat curtain or two. You are so amazing!

So beautiful! I love the colors, red is such a great color. The pattern is very pretty. I wish I could quilt or knit or do something crafty. Your lucky!

Gorgeous quilt Jerri.

Yes, us old people do tell the young 'uns how fast time flies...when you're having fun.

Love,
Suzy

A gorgeous bit of warmth and brightness for the dark days of winter, created by a woman of light and love.

Love this design and love that you are so creative, that you give it the space and time. And some projects need time.
