31 Day Blog Writing Challenge 2017, Rambling On, Secret Quilting Project

Bloom Where You Are Planted

bloom where you are planted, a hibiscus in a vaseI remember, as a newlywed, moving 1000+ miles from our home state of Texas to upper East Tennessee. Someone at church gave me a little refrigerator magnet with the words “bloom where you are planted,” we were planted there almost 20 years!

Those words still ring true as I was reminded of that yesterday when to my amazement, a fallen twig rescued from my Hibiscus plant had burst into full bloom in my kitchen!

Bloom Where You Are Planted

Soon I will be “planted” into our RV next door. I’ve been both excited and apprehensive- mainly because my longarm won’t fit 🙃 – I hope to be able to report in that I’m “blooming!”

My future  “repotting into the RV”  plans are to catch up on a lot of piecing. I have class samples to make, patterns to write, Island Batik challenges to fulfill and even some secret sewing.

Speaking of secret sewing…I can actually share the fabric with you but I can’t show you the design just yet. Look what arrived yesterday in the mail and truly encouraged me in my thoughts of “bloom where you are planted” in regards to my near future living arrangement – yep, one of many RV sewing projects that are calling my name!

Beautiful Island Batik fabrics are so inspiring
Island Batik’s “Basics” is anything but basic! So inspiring! I can hardly wait for the new year to play in this beautiful fabrics

This is Karen Overton, The Quilt Rambler, still dreaming of warmer days while being reminded to be content where I’m planted at the moment!
