Dazzler

Dazzler

I love purple...from grape to lilac, amethyst to lavender. I recently added touches of royal purple to my guest bathroom. This small 18” x 22” wall quilt, Dazzler, is made up of drunkard's path blocks. I quilted around the curves in dark purple thread. This one only took a day to complete. It's satisfying to work on small projects because they finish up quickly.
Now I am on the hunt for a couple of matching hand towels and perhaps a colorful rug. It's the little things, you know, that bring me joy. 
This month I've been making a daily note of gratitude. Looking back, most of them are simple pleasures, and I like that. 
  
Sometimes we get so caught up
in trying to accomplish
something big,
that we fail to notice
the little things
that give life its magic
