Today I sent out my fabric for Twelve Square. I have been so excited about this for so long. Eleven women are making blocks for me. For me.
I had so much fun picking through my scraps. I wanted something monochromatic. I have been meaning to make a quilt like this for a long time. Shades of white, ivory and linen.
I bet you aren't surprised.
You know, sometimes I think about giving up my blog. Sometimes I just want to spend my free time doing stuff, not writing about it and showing pictures.
Then I think about these eleven women.
I think about inspiration.
I think about the friends I have made through this computer.
This is an outlet for me, a place to be just me and share things that make my heart beat a bit faster.
Sometimes I don't even think anyone really reads it.
You know what I mean right? Of course you know by the comments or an email, but then you see someone and they say, "Oh, I love your blog."
It still gets me every time. I still blush every time. I feel a little embarrassed. Then I remember how much I love doing it.
Sometimes I read back a few months and I think about how happy I am that my kids will read this someday.
And today, I am so happy that someday I will have a quilt made by Twelve women.
Pretty amazing if you ask me.
