While doing a little retail therapy I picked up this little sign and thought it would be great to share with you this week.

the flowers of tomorrow 1-25-15

Did you know, you’re a gardener?  Even if you don’t dig in the dirt?  We all plant seeds – intentional and unintentional.    My thought when I read this sign was of my three grandsons.  My parents planted MANY seeds in the life of my kids.  For which I am very grateful.  Today, we experience the “Flowers” that have bloomed from those seeds.  I hope I can plant many seeds in the hearts of my grandsons that will bloom into beautiful flowers someday.  Some seeds we see bloom right away, others are slow bloomers and the very special ones, are continuous bloomers!

But looking beyond the adult ~ child connection, we can really plant seeds anywhere and everywhere!  Words are a powerful thing ~ and so is the way we live our life.  Actions and the example to someone of how we live life also plants seeds.

I know this week I will be more conscious and intentional about my words and actions.  Trying to plant seeds of love, positivity, kindness and generosity.

Lets have a GREAT week!!  You in?



Thanks for visiting!

Our FIRST Quilt Along ~ you could win a kit!

Have you ever participated in a Quilt Along?  What’s a Quilt Along you ask?  It’s a program where participants from anywhere can participate and share their quilts via social media.  It’s so much fun to see what everyone does with the same pattern!  The Quilt Along will happen over on Instagram and we’ll be stitching up a monthly Mini Quilt.  Two of my absolute favorites right now!!

I love Instagram!  It’s simple, user friendly and the inspiration is never ending!!  If you haven’t used it yet, check into it.  It’s lots of fun - go get set up so you can Quilt Along!!

And Mini’s ….. I’m a little obsessed with them right now.  Can I just say FAST & CUTE!!  What could be better than that.

So this is how it will work ~

  • The first of each month I will post on the blog which quilt we’ll be stitching up for that month.  I’ll include any tips I have for the quilt.  The first post will be February 1.
  • We’ll be stitching designs from many different designers.
  • No sign ups, just jump in and participate, every month, or when you can.
  • I will post my quilt (s) on Instagram.  You post your finished top (s) on Instagram.  Each month I will draw 2 names of those who have posted that month and they will receive a FREE kit for the next month’s Mini Quilt.  How FUN is that??

So when you post your quilt you’ll include the hashtag #stqminisquiltalong.  Stands for Sweet Treasures Quilts Mini Quilt Along, aren’t we glad we don’t have to type all that!!  Including the hashtag in your post will add it to the #stqminiquiltalong group.  You can go there to see everyone else’s quilts.

Those of you who are local and part of the Mini’s club, I sure hope you’ll participate!

Who’s in?  You’re going to LOVE IT!!  I can’t wait to see your quilts!!

feeling inferior 1-18-15

When someone makes you feel inferior, it means your buying into what they’re selling.  When you begin feeling low when with someone, or when they talk to/about you, ask yourself, “Why am I feeling this way”?  Am I buying into their story/attitudes/feelings?  You can make the choice to agree with them and feel inferior or you can remind yourself how wrong they are and move on, not dwelling on what made you feel inferior.

If you feel they have merit, then figure out what needs to change, and change it!  Don’t allow yourself to get stuck.
