Quote about Personal Growth by Tupac Shakur with a Beautiful Photo of Tulips

“I want to grow. I want to be better. You Grow. We all grow. We're made to grow.You either evolve or you disappear.” 
― Tupac Shakur

I took this beautiful photo above during this past Spring 2014.  I call it "Tulip's View to the Sky"  

2014 May ~ Rag Quilt Pictures Finally From

I am finally getting around to posting pics of the rag quilt I completed in May.  Seems like summer break just started for my boys a few weeks ago but the reality is school starts this Thursday!  By the time it slowly sinks in that I now have a 5th and 7th grader, it will be time to be decorate the Christmas tree, ohhhh shhhhhhhh, I said that out loud!  

So this was my first rag quilt, now while it was a simple style for me, it was still my first time.  One thing I learned while making one that I didn't expect was that the piecing thread should blend into the fabrics I chose.  I was expecting the raggy cutting area to hide it more than it does.  So that is one thing I would suggest if you ever make one yourself.  Let me know if you have ventured into making one of these before.  The most time consuming part of it was the cutting every 1/4 inch of the seams.  

I hope to be back to posting more very soon.  I have several different projects going on at once right now, but that is always the way right?  =)
