QUILT BLOCK #8 Arrowroot

Another great old block! This one is Arrowroot. Don't you love the appliqued leaves and the embrodiered stems? And that blast of yellow in the center - really gives this block the *WOW* factor.

The *WOW* factor. When is the last time you've had a *WOW* factor in your life? Like a quilt block, life is kinda what we make it. If we come to a new day with zest, a smile, an anticipation of what that day may hold, it'll probably be a good day - even if trouble comes your way. It's kind of like taking an early morning walk to get your juices flowing, a chance to let your creative mind work.

Or - do y0u have to drag yourself out of bed, ho-humming your way through the day, expecting the worst to happen.

Which kind of person do you want to be? What would be the *WOW* factor in your life that would turn you on? I have a suggestion. Start the day with scripture reading, even if it is only one small chapter. It'll do wonders for you. Could be that *WOW* factor you've been searching for.

    I'm definitely interested in flipping. I just never had the nerve to do it. I can clean, but I'm not that good about repairing things.
