As we get older, we learn things about ourselves. One thing I've learned is that while I'm relatively good at dealing with changing situations, I love the consistency of my surroundings. In CA a friend of mine would switch all of her furniture around every few months. Her apartment always looked so cute and it inspired me to go home and do the same. It gave me anxiety. When you come to my house, you will find the my couch in exactly the same place that it was when our family moved in.
Over the years this has transferred over into seasonal decorating, with the exception of Christmas. (It also may be why I can only wear solid shirts, but that is a story for a different day:). My solution to seasonal decorating is my seasonal quilt rack.
PS: I used these free paper piecing patterns for the frog and the turtle from Paper Panache. Then added borders and sashing that made sense at the time, but I don't remember the exact sizing. All of the fabric was probably from Joann's because I didn't know about quilt shop quality fabric back then.
