I also decided to end the Fat Quarter Swap group - I found I was not enjoying that anymore either. I found myself quite frustrated when I had to chase up whether a swap was completed or not, and I was getting very disappointed when most of the swappers stopped sharing photos of what had been sent and received - that was the bit I enjoyed most .... seeing all the lovely Fat Quarter goodies :) I was going to close it completely - the blog and the Facebook group, but I received an offer from Sara to keep it going :) Hopefully, Sara will breathe some new life into it.
I found I still wanted to do something with my time :) they say when one door closes, another one opens ............... well it did :) An opportunity for a new host of the CHERISH circle of the do Good Stitches bee opened up .......... and I put myself forward, and was accepted :)
I have been a stitcher for the CHERISH circle for a few years, so I knew roughly how it worked. I am currently in the process of getting to know the new members of our circle, and have taken the first spot for the year with a scrappy wonky star block - a nice easy one for everyone to start with.
I hadn't even got around to making up a sample block, when Margie shared a photo of what she had made (I have pinched Margie's photo here :) ) Very exciting seeing these!
These blocks are already in my hot little hands ....... I can't wait to see what the resultant quilts will look like - I will be making two lap quilts as I only have a domestic machine and will be limited in how I can quilt it.
Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day - any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)
Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
