Happy Circle

As a part of my 365 project, I have been making circle blocks. So far, I have shown you 141 blocks. Let's continue with block 142.

 Block 142


Sometimes when I am in a rush, I try to stop over-think things.  If an idea is good enough, I just run with it without thinking everything through.  I found this free pattern from Sarah at A Little Happy Place. Yes, her blog is a happy place indeed.  She used it as a center of a dresden plate.

Yes, pattern is beautiful, it's free, and it;s a circle.  Let's use this for the circle quilt.  There are other thoughts, such as the one that says when I am in a hurry, maybe an embroidery project isn't the best one to make quick progress, but I brush them aside.

 Block 142

Is that the same block? Yes it is. Let's take the time to admire it, shall we?

After all, what better way is there to slow things down and really relax and enjoy the time you spend relaxing than digging through a big box of beautiful colors, choosing a color you like, and embroidering the word happy.  

This block is very appropriate for me though.  I saw two different blogs that used the word "happy" in their project that day, and I was listening to a book on tape called The Happiness Project.

Just look at it, who wouldn't be happy with seeing the word "happy" made in a chain stitch?
