#SOL21: In Search Of . . .

Hunting for something unique.

Listing. Searching. Scrolling. Searching.

Hmmm. Closer.

But do I really like it well enough that I will still like it six months from now when I return to it?

Scrolling. Staring. Questioning. Scrolling.


Now on to the hard part.

Decisions, decisions, decisions.

I need three that go together – three.

And then probably four sets of three . . . or more.

I ask for help.

I want assistance.

I want reassurance.

Will I really like these tomorrow? Or will I be replacing them that quickly?

I take a risk.

I choose something I’ve never chosen for myself.


An easy way to add another dimension.

And then the unthinkable.

Although it’s for me, I choose pink.

Why pink?

Because it is new and fresh.

Rethinking past choices.

Revisiting new possibilities.

Opportunities to break away from past choices

To enjoy newfound freedom.

Beginning with blue, green, purple and pink.

‘How do you “choose” new projects? Where does your inspiration come from?

  1. I read this because my student is absent and I’m not sure what I should do with this gift of time. Read posts? Write? Lesson plans? I’m wishing I had brought the book from my bedside table. I think trying something new, batik, and pink could lead to newfound creativity.

    1. Margaret,
      I wish you had your book, too! I’m looking forward to pink and batik and creativity!

  2. Batiks offer up a whole new world of choices for quilters. such a vast array of colors and patterns. When Kathy chooses fabrics she looks for ones that “talk” to her. A pattern can always be found to fit the material.

    1. Wise, Kathy! I’m looking forward to the 12 shops at Missouri Star Quilt this week – 2 day trip. New adventures!
