Wish'n upon a star

Wish I may,

Wish I might,

Have the wish,

I wish tonight,
Be for warned these stars are addicting.

That I may have more time to sew tonight!
These star's are not quite the full block size, there is still more to be done.

I'm just loving the crumb along. :)

Crumbs- the little bit that is left behind. The good kind, quilty!  Not the leftover chili that got pushed to the back of the refrigerator. I don't think you want to see the back of my fridge.

Admit it, you have some of these hidden in dark boxes.

Waiting for the day you pull them out.

It's time to let perfectionism go and join the crumb quilt along with Jo. It's fun to have fun, and let go of perfect.

Disclaimer: This is not Jo's original quilt idea. That would be the wonderful Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville. I know there are ton's of fans out there too.  Jo was wonderful to get permission to explain how she followed Bonnie's lead and start the quilt along.

In my opinion both ladies are wonderful, if you join the quilt along I'm sure you'll have the opportunity to see this too.

P.S. I'm still slowly working on my Farmer's Wife Quilt along. Right now with college classes starting again, I need something a little less regimented. This is the ticket for me.

Rain, rain, go away

Rain, Rain, Go Away! Come again another Day!

Here in central Pennsylvania, everyone has been bombarded with rain. There is flooding in places that I remember from my childhood, there is flooding on roads we travel everyday, there is just too much rain with no where to go. We have stayed inside and keep a silent wish that our home didn't see flooding. This is the only time that living near the water is not beautiful :(

 It came close, but we have been fortunate. I can't say the same for so many others. If I could, I would send well wishes, a bit of something to eat, and a ray of sunshine. I sure hope all of these things come to you soon.
