In a Funk

I'm having one of those days. Yep, pretty much the day from hell. So, instead of talking about my life, let's take a "fieldtrip" and look at some pretty things and pretend it is a good day, okay? And perhaps If I pretend long enough it just might happen! Let's try...

Take a look at this woman's blog. "Decaf Please" is written by a lady named Tracey who makes amazing quilts. I "met" Tracey as I followed a link from Anita at Bloomin' Workshop's blog (Anita always has cute things at her blog too!), when she linked to this quilt. Aren't the bright colors just what a soul needs on murky January days? I love all of her quilts, so take a look on her blog. What talent!!

I found another friend when I clicked the Quilt Mavericks link on Tracey's sidebar.

I discovered Joanne from Rockin' on the Porch. I fell in love with her heart quilt, her appliqued silhoutte tree quilt, her postcards, and her gratitudes section at the end of her posts.

And take a look at Quilts and Pieces' Smore Snowman quilt and pillowcases that she made for a Christmas present! Those bright pinks are wonderful, aren't they?! And take a look at this dessert! Oooooh! That chocolate syrup looks so delish! And she has pics of all of her quilt blocks. Aren't they pretty?

So yeah. I'm in a funk. Take a look at the pretty pictures of other people's projects and enjoy them today, and hopefully this mood won't last long!


  1. Those are some amazing quilts. Thanks for sharing those sites. Maybe one day I'll be motivated to get the quilt out that I started over 20 years ago.
    The problem is I liked the colors back then and now I don't so I never want to work on it.

  2. Sorry you're in a funk. I hope tomorrow is better.

  3. I'm sorry you are in a funk! I am not following the rules for the interview... big surprise! I posted questions you can take your pick of on my blog.

    I'm not having a good day either. Nothing done because I spent too much time on the computer and am now sufferring from revenge of the bagged salad. I think I'm done with bagged salads forever.

  4. We all have funky days.

    I'll have to check out these woman when I return home this evening!!

    Hope you come out of the funk for the weekend.
