Wednesday Piecing

Thank you so very much to those who left messages on my post about Claire. While I am hurting, I know it is nothing compared to the loss her family is experiencing and will continue to feel. She was a terrific wife, mother and grandmother and dealt with so many trials with such grace and dignity.

While yesterday was a sad day..there was something that made me smile..receiving a package from Barb in American Samoa. A week or so ago she had a giveaway and I won this awesome zippered bag. It's terrific and I can think of many ways I will use it. I'm always impressed by anyone who can put a zipper in! I haven't done one in about 45 years and don't plan to.

If that wasn't enough, Barb also included a large piece of this gorgeous fabric. She apologized because I had said I mostly like darker colors and she sent something bright! First of all, I'm thrilled to get any fabric..any time. Secondly how could anyone not like this fabric? Both things were like a ray of sunshine on a day I really needed some sunshine!
My first thought was that this fabric would make awesome Stack and Whack blocks. But there wasn't enough repeats, so I just started making some blocks. Here's what I have so far. Don't exactly know where I'm going with this, but I'm sure enjoying the journey and know it will end up being something wonderful.

Thank you, Barb, for your generosity and for brightening my day! You're the best!
