My google search page decor for my birthday!
So...it's my birthday, and I am excited about that, but I am more excited about something else!

I did something...and I am proud of myself.

I am a quilter full of insecurities like most others, but lately that is all I have felt towards quilting.  All I have been thinking of is how I just don't measure up and it has drowned out my creative voice because I have let it.  Every negative comment or message has poured over me like Lava, scalding me so deeply. Well...because I have let it.

No one can make you feel inferior without your consent.
Eleanor Roosevelt

I thought of that quote while I laid in my bed unsleeping last night.  I do have good things going for me and I am determined to let those things speak louder to me from this point onward.  How do you handle your insecurities?

So on to other news..I was featured on the Selvage Blog yesterday for my Asterisk quilt!  (POST)

I started to do a bit of quilting on my limbo projects!
I practiced on the spring checkerboard!

I am so excited about the stone work, which I have been scared to do!

This quilt got the random Squares treatment
Just about every fabric was auditioned for the binding, but I finally realized that the one I really want to use is the Pink polka-dot used on both projects, so I will need 2 yard for binding (also for a few bibs I need the fabric for ties) and so these will be put to the side until I can put in an order over at Connecting threads.  They have such low prices that I wait to save my allowance to use when I have enough to order that will give me free shipping!

I am so excited to move onto my Squares and 4-patch quilt which I have decided to go with the yellow thread my husband suggested and yellow binding that was suggest by Needlemom!  I think I can get both from connecting threads as well!!

And last, but not least, I won the Travel Stash box #3 giveaway!  Have you seen these around the web?  I will be posting the giveaway a day or two after I get the box!  You can read more about it HERE.

Thank you all for visiting today!  I will be back soon with hopefully something finished!  Until then I shall be celebrating my Birthday with something yummy I hope!



  1. I love that quote!!! It is excellent and sooo true. Your asterik quilt looks awesome on the Selvage blog. Congratulations.

    The graphic quilting is perfect for that quilt. You are so brave. I always try to find thread that blends in because my quilting is not that great. It hides my mistakes ;-)

    Happy birthday to you..happy birthday to you (Much better than my real singing). Hope it is a fabulous year ahead for you.

  2. Happy Birthday abd hope you it`s an awesome year!

  3. Happy birthday!

    We creatives all have that nasty inner critic to deal with. I like the idea of another blog keeper who writes to hers. I can't share a link from my phone but can later when I get home.

    Enjoy your day!

  4. Feliz Aniversário!!!!Que seja realizados todos os seus SONHOS.

  5. I have my own saying: Don't talk to yourself in a way you wouldn't allow someone to speak of your best friend.

  6. Your quilt is just delightful. You did a wonderful job. Happy Birthday to you!

  7. Happy (belated) Birthday! Sorry, I am WAY behind on my reader, LOL. Love the progress and I am glad I am not the only one that saves up for free shipping :-)


I love to hear from my readers!
