Yesterday I spent the day up in my quilt room working away on a project that really needs to get done. I like it, but a few weeks ago, after I got several of the blocks done, I laid it out to see how it would look and then promptly lost all the excitement over it. It isn't that I don't like it, I do--I just lost all my motivation. I had put it away to work on postcards the past couple weeks. Have you made any of these? They are totally addicting and fun! Here are a few I completed Tuesday.
After finishing these on Tuesday, I had to clean up my sewing area! I can work in a cetain amount of mess, but when it reaches a "that" point, I have to clean up. I have been frustrated up there with the amount of space--I ran out. So, after I tidied up, I started looking at how things were arranged, stored, utilitized, etc. I purged a small amount, rearranged, and then when I came upon some bins containing non-quilting/scrapbooking items, I moved on to our storage area to see if I could fit those items in somewhere else. I did! That was just the space I needed to fit things in better. My main problem was that I recently started hand-dyeing and so had piles of fabric that wasn't in my stash previously AND I got my Christmas present last week--a Janome Jem which also needed a "home."
Tuesday morning we had dropped off my car to get repaired--multiple things were "going on" and so it had to stay overnight until yesterday afternoon. Despite the fact that I rarely go anywhere, I felt "marooned" so it was nice to get it back.
My goal today is to finish the major project I was working on yesterday and be able to post a picture tomorrow! I have about half the blocks put together--so it should be fairly easy. This quilt has the blocks on point--my least favorite way to constuct a quilt--I seem to always make mistakes! What I do know: it is staying all laid out across the floor until all the blocks are put together!
Have a great day, everyone!
