a life compass


wouldn’t it be nice if we were all born with a little compass to carry around and tell us where we needed to go? I can hear my mom in my head saying..”we do!” and if I were meditating on a regular basis, mine would be in perfect working order! but I want it easy..I want a shiny little one I can hold in my hand, with a pretty silver chain to where/wear around my neck!  Psssh!

I need to meditate!

Here is the compass for the Alaska quilt.  I finally settled on an idea I liked.

    Nothing short of fantastic, Laney! Great work on making a compass real–this will be a super addition to your quilt. Happy Day, my friend ((HUGS)) Oh, stop by this week if you can, I’m having a Valentine Giveaway. :o)

    This is wonderful. I like the running stitch highlights a lot.

    nobody should go out into this world without a compass, a good leatherman and some spare knitting, a good little journal and some crossword puzzles.

    Love the stitching on that piece and looking forward to seeing it in place…

    I really enjoyed your Alaska quilt! I’m sure your dad will love it, if he hasn’t already seen it. If you ever get back north, swing by and say hello!

    how beautiful! I love the idea of having a compass over the covers as we sleep…maybe it will guide your father in his dreams. He will love this.
    Thanks for stopping by earlier Laney!
