A few months ago I met and became quick friends with Judy, apronstringsandothertiesthatbind
Judy was just getting into Crazy Quilting and me being a CQ Pusher, was drawn to her. For some other unknown reason I felt a special closeness to her, like maybe she was brought into my life for a reason. Lately I have been a little down about one thing or another ( mostly health problems) but also I felt like I had lost my creative mojo. Judy enthusiasm for learning CQ put a little spark back where it belonged. Please take a minute and read Judy's post she made today on her Blog - her beautiful story reflects the type of person she is and I am so happy that even though strangers, I feel we have become good friends.
Judy and I decided that it would be fun to do a one-on-one CQ block swap - one with no restrictions and no time frame. NO time frame? That is the best! I let her block sit around for a few days and then slowly began working on it... a little bit each night. Funny how you think one minute you are going to do one thing but the next day, you change your mind. The fabrics in Judy's block are vibrant in color and were so much fun to embellish. This one's for you Judy and will be on it's way home to you tomorrow.

For some reason I could never wrap my brain around this stich!
