Balance



Life is all about balance and being out of balance makes it difficult to get everything done. I have been out of balance but I have taken steps to get back into balance. And hurray! I'm back with a post!
You didn't think I had completely given up quilting, did you? Absolutely not! I still found time to squeeze it in. One of the things I did as a stress reliever was what I like to call "itchy finger sewing". I made a quick sketch. (Didn't spend more that 2 minutes on it.) I then took some of my favorite (of the moment) scraps and came up with this little cutie!




I zipped this up in a few hours and then it took maybe an hour to machine quilt it. And it is CUTE!!





The scraps for this were made from leftovers from these stars.



That went to make this quilt. A baby quilt for a new baby girl.

Happy quilting!
