Default I'm happy when . . .

I'm happy when

- when I have six inches of thread left on the bobbin and top thread at the end of a long seam
- when I have just enough fabric to cut out all the pieces


What are some of your 'simple happies'?

When I'm off work and it's a snow or rain day and I can stay in and quilt. Don't tell my farmer husband that though since he hasn't been able to get in the field yet. Getting more snow right now.

Ill take some of your snow. We've already got wheel lines and the pivots running.

The final stitches to finish a quilt! It means I can get started on the next idea haunting my dreams!! Also the smile on the face of the recipient of my quilts

When I am sewing on the binding, knowing that my next new quilt will soon be started.
When I get each UFO completed.
