Webster's defines serendipity as "The occurrence and development of events by chance in a happy or beneficial way: "a fortunate stroke of serendipity."
Just call me the finder of serendipity. When I finished the last round of this RR, I looked at my two pieces and really didn't have any idea where I'd go next. I didn't even like them all that much. But I'm not one to give up, so I just set them aside and waited for something to strike my fancy. Then the "directions" came out for the next step - "Serendipity." Huh? I had no idea what that meant as far as quilting went - until yesterday.
I was pretty tired after doing some water aerobics, and decided to quit sewing for a bit and take a nap. As I was cleaning up and putting some things aside, I had to pick up a stack of little wonky stars that I'd made several months ago as leaders and enders. Then about 15 minutes later, just as I was dropping off to sleep, it hit me. "Use those stars!" I'd been wondering what I'd do with them, and I realized I could use a bunch of them on these liberated pieces. I put them on the sides only - I think I'll start going rectangular on these instead of square.
