Bringing the 100 Day Project to a Close

 The 100 Day Project has been in full swing since the end of February 2022.  Here are the posts from day #61 - day #100.

#61/100 "Faith is the bird that feels the light and sings when dawn is still dark." Tagore

#62/100 "The butterfly counts not months but moments and has time enough." Tagore














the ocean can calm itself, 

so can you, 

we are both salt water mixed with air." Nayyirah Waheed










#64/100 "You just have to settle for nothing less than 

being fully alive--to show up, be who you are, and share your gifts."

#68/100 After a long hike on this day, Thich Nhat Hanh has the most beautiful words.

"Walk as if you are kissing the Earth with your feet."

#69/100 Some loops on the bird body getting some stitching

#70/100 "Happiness is contagious." Marie Forleo  And getting outside brings on the happiness.

#73/100 "my mother was my first country; the first place i ever lived."  Nayyirah Waheed

I've been thinking about my Mom often in this May spring time.  It was her favorite season, her birthday, May 6 and Mother's Day all wrapped in a beautiful bundle for her.

#74/100 A bit of mindfulness reminder from Tich Nhat Hanh, 

"The best way to take care of the future is to take care of the present moment."

#75/100 Oh the flowers are blooming on the quilt; just like what is happening with spring in Minnesota.









#76/100 Feet, eggs and nest stitching happening


#77/100 "No matter what people tell you, WORDS and IDEAS can change the world." Robin Williams





















#96/100 Two Friends


"Behold Wonder."  Richard Bach


"Make each day your masterpiece."  John Wooden


"Joy is your birthright." Leslie Santos



"Hold out your hands to feel the luxury of sunbeams."  Helen Keller

During the 100 day project I stitched, painted, found poems that I loved, wrote poetry that I put on my own fiber art, used #hashtags more then I ever have and played in new ways with color and words.  It was a fun challenge.  I found some other artists who were also doing this challenge and that was fun too. The project concluded on June 16, 2022.  I posted almost every day consecutively--sometimes I'd miss a day, sometimes I'd post twice in a day.  I was quite excited to do this challenge.
