Show & tell, silk fabric scraps

Last night was my quilt bee, Mary brought some of her quilts to share (she's the overachiever of the group, there's always one in every group!), this first one was a block of the month pattern from our local quilt shop (Quilted Memories). The blocks are called Felicity's Garden which Mary put together with beautiful boarder fabrics.

This sunflower wall hanging was a paper piecing pattern.

This little wall hanging was a kit from the quilt shop Little Quilts in Marietta, Ga. Mary purchased it last fall and made it on a stormy day this winter, the name of the quilt is Memories of Spring. I think everyone around here is ready for spring.

This is a bag of silk tie scraps I just received in the mail. They are great quality, large pieces, lots of variety and the bag is packed full. I read about ordering this bag from a great crazy quilting blog called alliesinstitches.blogspot.com She does beautiful handwork, check out her blog. Any way about ordering the silk fabric, I called Talberts in California 831-659-4540 and ordered it, it cost $25.00 and around $15.00 shipping. I'm not really a crazy quilter but I love to have a wide variety of fabrics and could not pass this up. They really are beautiful.

First off I would like to say superb blog! I had a quick question
in which I'd like to ask if you do not mind. I was interested to find out how you center yourself and clear your thoughts before writing. I've had trouble clearing my mind in getting my thoughts out.
I do enjoy writing but it just seems like the first
10 to 15 minutes tend to be wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.
Any recommendations or tips? Kudos!
