Be Good

I saw this saying on pintrest a few months ago.  I knew then that I wanted it in my home.  I thought about getting it done in vinyl letters.  While on a retreat I found this awesome orange fabric and the wheels in my mind began to turn.  I hadn't done a improvisational quilt for a while.  Words make great improv quilts.  BE THE GOOD would look so good in that orange.  Tuesday I was not feeling my best and mindless sewing always makes me feel better.  So I pulled all my black fabrics out of my scrap bin, grabbed that awesome orange and a blue from my stash and got busy.  I had all the words done by Tuesday night and just had to fill in the spaces yesterday. 
It was just the medicine I needed.  I'm feeling much better now.
