{ This moment } – A Friday ritual. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

 If you’re inspired to do the same, leave a link to your ‘moment’ in the comments for all to find and see. Inspired by SouleMama.

About Yanic A.

Hello to all of you and thank you for stopping by! My name is Yanic. I'm a wife to a wonderful husband, a mother of 2 beautifully complex and unique children and a lover of all things inspiring. Having started a personal journey of self discovery when I found out I was pregnant with my daughter 4 years ago, I've since embraced a daily life of simpler pleasures and gratitude. As we get to know each other, you will know me as a quilter, a gardener, a Tao cultivator, a vegetarian foodie, a true believer in a healthy family life as being the secret to my happiness and hopefully as time goes on, a friend... I will try to share with you my days as they unfold, speaking of my happy successes without censoring my challenges, trying to make this blog a true portrait of the ever-changing path that I have chosen for myself. I'm hoping to find in these pages others to share with and learn from, bringing to light the absolute connection in all things and people, showing this world as being a true community.

      Thank you Robin. I’m a scrap quilter, I love random fabrics. I’ve rarely made something that had a repeating fabric. My mother in law watched me go through her waste baskets in her sewing room last time I was there to rescue any scrap over an inch square. This is what I do with them. LOL!

      On my way to your moment now! Thank you for stopping by. xo

      Thank you… I never thought of it that way but it does look like it doesn’t it? 🙂 The block pattern was called Vertigo. I thought it was fitting. 🙂

      Have a wonderful week-end! xo

    Oh! It’s beautiful! And fittingly representative of the creativity, ingenuity, and randomness-with-a-pattern that is this life and motherhood. Oh, and a hint of autumn! 😉

    Here’s my moment (a small slice of peace while visiting my folks in NY): http://walterandlila.wordpress.com/2014/10/17/this-moment-57/

    Have a great weekend!

      Ah, thank you! The pattern is called Vertigo, but I’m thinking of calling the piece “Happy Vortex”. Seems more fitting.

      On my way to your moment now. Thank you for stopping by, hope you are well. xo

  6. I’ve had vertigo, and while there’s some resemblance, I like “Happy Vortex” better!

    I’d be happy to send you scraps now and then if you’d like. Let me know.

      I would love that! I love sewing but fabric here is SO expensive. I usually stock up when I go to the states but am not due to go back until next year. Plus I do a lot of small work (EPP, doll blankets and pillows, etc.) Just let me know if I can help with shipping, I’m more than happy to declutter your space! Write me at ffff.blog@hotmail.com

    That is beautiful. Maybe someday I’ll learn to quilt. The quilt community here is very closed to new people, but I’ve taught myself most of my other crafts.

      Thank you so much, that is very sweet to say. I’m not 100% better, any kind of weight on my arm is still very painful, but the numbness in my fingers and wrist are gone and detail work doesn’t hurt so much. Feels good!

      Thank you Carie, that is sweet of you to say. My husband always gets on me about not having any confidence in my sewing and quilting. I’m trying to break out of my shell a bit and share more.
