The pictures in this post don't really have anything to do with what I'm trying to express here...except that they're my life...and
|My Precious Little playing with toys made from Skulpy when her mommy and uncle were her age!|
I AM so blessed.
|The daughters of a couple of my Colombian Quilt Group friends have been joining us while they're home from school for the summer. Pure delight!|
Living our adventure in Barranquilla makes me miss the USA some kinda bad at times.
|Precious Little has her own agenda at swim class.|
Dealing with some negative things from my past and sometimes present makes me struggle with my emotions and thoughts on a daily basis.
|I donated a book to my CQG and each of them have been working on the quilt in it. Here are two of them!!! If memory serves...it's a Quilt In A Day book by Eleanor Burns.|
But I have to say it again.
|Couldn't resist another skyline sunset from my window.|
I can make myself happy wherever I am. Physically, Geographically, Emotionally.
|The piece I told you about in this post...finished!|
And I AM.
|A little work in progress that I did while procrastinating on fixing my printer.|
Happy that is.
|Another little door knob quilt that I worked on while procrastinating .|
I have been learning that our thoughts create our reality.
|Fixed and working!|
I believe this and have seen it working in my life for some time now...and...so especially when I'm thinking about what to write...because it's so permanent...I focus on the positive.
|The beginning of Precious Little #2s quilt.|
I get a lot of comments on my positive, grateful attitude but there are people who know me pretty well that wouldn't say that.
|More preparation for above mentioned quilt. I love this view out of my laundry room too!|
No matter. I KNOW that my thoughts become things so even when life isn't just the way I want it to be...I'm doing my level best not to focus on the negative.
|Nope...the windows don't close.|
Past, present or future.
|Pieces for PL's quilt drying.|
That means that when I remember a not so happy event...I'm choosing to only pick out the good parts. And if there aren't any good parts, I imagine it the way I wish it had gone.
|All those beautiful strips of fabric from other projects will be part of her quilt.|
Fantasy can be a wonderful thang.
|This is the view from my play room window. If I have clothes hanging...it gets pretty dark.|
For the present, no matter how I feel, I've been training my mind to focus on anything that is lovely, sweet, happy, uplifting, positive or good in any way.
For the future, I'm squelching any doubts or fear or worry or negative role playing.
|The pictures, I painted with fabric paint and the strip became my next batch of bookmarks.|
I'm practicing living with a grateful, thankful heart and I honestly have no end to things I can be grateful for.
|I've been printing out my favorite baby shower invites to use in her quilt.|
Right now, I'm happy exactly where I am.
My sincerest wish for you is that you are too!
|Just before the baby shower began.|
Love, peace and all things groovy to you and yours.
|It was wonderful!|
Create your life,
|Milena, Hillary and Shirlley. These were the girls who organized the shower. Thank you SO much!|
|Me and my baby girl...and her baby girl. :)|
