A little peek

Today I'm showing you a peek of the next landscape quilt inspiration and I have to say I'm SOOO excited about this one!

Thank you Euvah....I hope I can do this justice!

The church was in Chackbay, Louisiana and, according to Euvah, has been torn down since this photo was taken.  So many of these marvelous structures are being destroyed, whether by design or by vandalism, and I think that's why I want to recreate them as best I can.  

- Have a look at the eye candy of THIS artist!  

- and THIS artist as well.

- THIS is a cute (and handy) zippered pouch - lots of uses for something like this, stash busting not the least of them!

- Sometimes the simplest things are the best, as THIS great project will show!

Another anonymous quote for you..."If you want to make positive changes in your life, don't sit on the couch and wait for it.  Go out.  Make a change.  Smile more.  Be excited.  Do new things.  Throw away what you've been cluttering.  Do not follow negative people or social media.  Go to bed early.  Wake up early.  Be fierce.  Don't gossip.  Show more gratitude.  Do things that challenge you.  Be brave."

  5. That's an exciting project, I'm sure it'll be appreciated.
    The marker/pen caddy is a great idea. Having pens/markers in one place can save a lot of time.

    1. Driving the back roads is the best!! We very rarely travel the main highways and my poor DH is getting used to me yelling 'BARN' and knowing he has to stop and back up so I can get pictures.
