Michael, my husband, has been out of the country for the past two weeks and I have used that time to get my life organized….particularly the quilting/blogging/business portion!!! I am enjoying blogging a lot more and trying to turn it into more of a business, but it takes time….lots and lots of time!!!
The other night, I was TIRED of sitting at my computer, WRITING AND THINKING about quilting and decided that it was time to do some sewing.
I turned to a kit that my guild’s charity group had provided and was pleased to open it up and see the fabrics already cut and ready to go…..
The kit even had detailed instructions about how to complete the top…..
The first step was to sew 12 W-O-F strips to 12 other W-O-F strips!! I put on my 1/4 inch foot that provides a ledge to butt up against……
…set the speed to “SUPER RABBIT”……
….and off I flew!!
After doing a bit of ironing, sewing, sub-cutting, sewing, and even more ironing, I was pleased to have this wonderful quilt top ready to go…….
I spent 2 hours from go to whoa on it and, not only did it make something that can be given away to help those in need, it gave me the welcome relief of getting to touch fabric and actually create something!!
Many thanks to our guild charity group as they do much of the “dirty” work so that I can have fun with the fabric part!!!
What do you work on when you JUST WANNA SEW?

Our charity group meetings are on hold so I will be eyeing up opportunities with my own leftover fabric.
Sometimes you just need an easy project to play with so that your mind can relax. And look at the result!
