A whole lot of cutting and a whole lot of thinking!
I have so many plans and ideas that it is stifling me a little bit...even with lists and times slots and planning...it is just crazy making!! But in the midst of all the thinking...there is the actual sewing, which is the redeeming part of it all, LOL! Above it my blue block, for So Scrappy...please see below to see everyone's blue scrap projects for this week.
I embroidered this saying on my folk art basket block...and I must say, that was great fun! Relaxing and I just remember stitching penny squares as a child; embroidery that my mom started me on. Lovely memories! Mom...now she was a REAL quilter and seamstress...made all our clothing and quilted up a storm!
Since it is "Blue" month at So Scrappy, I cut a ton of 2.5 inch strips for two quilts that I have in mind...neither one of which are on my list to make this year...but hey!! No rules here, right? I did make a mistake and stood barefoot for hours and cut strips, since the weather was so nice and sunshiny and warm...but my hips and knees and back really were aching last night. I guess I will remember to wear my tennis shoes with my supports in them next time I go on a cutting binge!
With all the blue cutting, there were lots of tiny strings, too small to go in the string bin, so I made a couple coasters and put hearts on them too. That was fun!!
