The Masterpiece by Javan

The Masterpiece by Javan

We are born into the world like a blank canvas and each person that crosses our path takes up the brush and makes his mark upon our surface

So it is that we develop

But we must realize there comes a day that we must take up the brush and finish the work

For only we can determine if we are to be just another painting or a Masterpiece. Javan

Spring Inspiration And a Record Broken

The temperature in NC today was 78 and a"new record" - too bad all my work right now is in the house.

I did get a chance to look at my pictures and gathered some with the promise of Spring awakenings.

Ruthie's Lillies from last Easter  - with great anticipation I just love when they break through the ground. That is Ruthie the frog on the bench - she looks after the lillies.
Can't wait for these wonderful butterflies to move back into the garden. This is an Autumn Joy plant so must wait for it to come back and bloom.  Knowing it will - brings me joy.

Just hanging out with the Vinca flowers and lillies ...

What's on your Design Wall on a Friday ...

My sewing group, The Golden Girls, worked on these organizers when we gathered two weeks ago.  Mine is hanging on the design wall with rulers and rotary cutter since cutting table is near.  The pattern came from the February Quilter's World Magazine and was pretty easy if you happen to have all ingredients. 
I chose civil war fabrics...Phyllis chose bright, happy dots...
Karen's is black, white and red but no picture yet -  Joyce had an embroidery project she needed to finish that day so did not get to make it.

I need to make a decision on this Mariner's Compass block - still thinking it would make a fantastic pillow or wall hanging - are there more options since I have not done anything with it?  I happen to like paper piecing, however, I do not think I would want to paper piece a whole quilt - one block was definitely worth it.

Judy C just taking a break and wishing you a weekend of happiness along your journey...
