Free piecing the Tonya way

A new challenge I have taken on is free piecing a word for Tonya's positive words project. I chose the word "soar" and last night played around with graph paper and some ideas. It's exciting to try a new technique that is out of my comfort zone and there may be several versions before I send it off to Tonya by June 15. As a Mother's Day gift to myself, I'll pull some happy fabric and play tomorrow afternoon after our guests depart. Every year we throw a Mother's Day brunch--some years my mom has been off gallivanting around the nation or world on vacation so we have my MIL and any SIL's that are around. I love family get-togethers and just hope my visitors will ignore my 19 year old horrible carpeting and any of the many other flaws this house has acquired over the years! Simple food, family gathered, and lots of laughter are on the menu. Happy Mother's Day to all!

Trust me, anyone that loves you isn't paying any attention to yoru carpeting or any of your other perceived flaws. You're good to go.!

Happy Mother's Day! And have fun playing -- SOAR is a wonderful word choice! Post pics when you have them.

Hey, when you have a bunch of folks over, older carpet is a plus!
