After seeing a number of five-year diaries on various blogs, I decided that it was time to start one of my own. A lot has changed in my life over the course of the past five years and I expect that the next five years will be just as full of new and exciting experiences and challenges. It seems like the perfect time to make a daily record of the important things in my life. Although I have just gotten started, I am really enjoying the five minutes I spend each evening reflecting on my day and putting together a sentence or two that captures it.
I also started another new quilting project in honour of my work colleague's recent announcement that she and her husband are expecting a baby girl in early July.
My co-worker keeps mentioning that she is planning to use white, lavender, pink and minty green in her nursery. I was having a hard time envisioning the palette until I saw that Aneela Hoey's new Posy collection used hat exact combination of colours.
I love how sweet and cheerful the prints in this collection are. There is enough variety and interest that I am planning to just sew all of my charm squares into a baby sized quilt to let the fabric shine. Nothing fancy, no extra fabrics and no crazy patchwork. Easy and satisfying.
