Another beauty from the Keystone Quilters Show, Fire and Ice was a joint effort by Sue Wilsey and her daughter Erin. Sue had Erin choose scraps from her stash of fabric, and what order she wanted them in, and then sewed it up. The front is orange and the back is blue violet to go with Erin’s room, which has two orange walls and two blue walls. I feel a kindred spirit.
The January Cure has come around again, and Stratoz and I are giving our house some attention. Besides cleaning tasks, there is the task of buying flowers weekly, and the color is a lift in the winter. Another task is to sit in a place you don’t usually sit, and observe the new view for 10 minutes. Taking this photo I noticed that the turtle is swimming in blue water. How did I not notice that before? How much of our homes do we actually see? How much of our lives?

What is your word for 2016? Until January 13th, we have free shipping within the US for words. Stratoz set it up on his Etsy Shop: Words with Free Shipping. If your word is not there, just order the one with the same number of letters. Leave us a note in the comments field. And if you want Times New Roman font like the ones above, let us know that too. We always check in about colors and details before we begin. In 6-8 weeks, we will send you a word to resonate for the rest of the year.
After creating a Create for a client the first week of the year, I chose Create as my word for 2016. A reminder to go into the studio for rejuvenation.
