In the meantime, I've been trying to make sure to carve out moments of quiet sanity for myself, time to sew. It hasn't been much, but as we all know, every little bit adds up to a lot eventually.
My temperature quilt is moving along well - I enjoy having just one block to make each day. On Ringo Lake is sitting silently, willing me to notice it again. The trouble is, despite the fact that the fabrics are scrappy, they are all in the same four color families, and for me, that makes it just a bit too predictable to compel me to work on it. One day...
The Flutterby blocks are the ones that excite me the most. I have 67 of the 140 blocks that I plan to make done, with about 11 more partially done. As you can see, I've been making the borders as I go. I really want this quilt to end up on my bed!
|I miss my design wall! The floor just isn't the same.|
|A couple of rows are sewn together, as are the outside borders. I'm hoping I'll have enough to make this lap sized, but it might end up being a baby quilt.|
|Is there anything better than someone else's scraps?|
|Hmm, I need better light in my sewing room!|
