Come On, Get Happy!
a book by Gretchen Rubin.
the start of a happy quilt by me.
I started reading this book, and then started sewing this quilt - and I can see there is a connection. The book is about finding happy. Just that, happy. We can all be a little happier - me being no exception. The book is a guide to bringing more simple joy into your life - and there is a blog for more motivation too. My April resolutions started with ::
1. listening to less angry music
2. more walking
Sounds pretty simple right?
I started quilting along with a quilt along, and realized that my blocks have little in the way of method, but lots in the way of fun - the colors and prints make me feel good - because I have been feeling good. Darling Heather Ross prints in the middle of shiny, happy strips. I am hopeful that working on this quilt will float me merrily into warm weather - til then I will focus on other ways to keep "happy "going - like walking and giving up heavy metal. How about you?
