I know. Nothing new there. We all know this. We love and we hate. We want peace and make war. We rain down destruction in the name of our ideals, but in moments of truce, we celebrate and shake hands and share food and commonalities.

Well, how to segue to sewing from there?
I put the Solstice Challenge Quilt-Along blocks on the design wall last week and was promptly underwhelmed.
Meh. It's just not working for me. But that's okay.
I've decided not to worry about catching up on the rest of the blocks that I'm behind on, and will just put it away for now. Later on I'll look at it again and maybe have a different perspective. Perhaps parts of it will wind up in a donation quilt or two.
In the meantime, I've started to pull and cut fabric for this year's Hands2Help charity quilt. Sarah posted some eye candy recently that tripped a light bulb for me, and I ran off to round up some bright graphic scraps.
I'm excited to get started on it!
