Hello my lovelies. I hope you’ve all had a fabulous day. It seems for the longest time I felt like I had lost my mojo. I’m sure lots of other quilt makers and crafters feel the same this time of year. I’m not sure if it’s the short days or whether it’s the let-down after Christmas that sends us crashing into the abyss. I do feel like I’m on the mend because I keep scratching around looking for UFOs projects to finish. I’m choosing projects that the most prep done which will put me in good stead to finish or make good progress more quickly. I feel the need to have a good sense of accomplishment at the end of the day.
So, what have I been doing today I hear you say. I sat down and pulled any paper shapes left in my Patchwork of the Crosses quilt top …..
And then I cut and joined the plain border which I’m adding to the POTC just to frame it up. Once that was done, I sat and pinned and tacked the hexagon centre to the plain border …..
If you look really hard you can see the tiniest dot of blood. This project has been a true labour of love. Not only that, I put blood, sweat and tears into it.
I’m pleased to tell you that I had a good play with my Moving Forward block last evening …..
Not only did I finish securing the patches to the background but I worked on another which is almost finish …..
Moving Forward!!! Yes, I am. And today I prepped another block …..
While I was busy in my sewing room, my supervisor was doing exactly what she does best. Zzzzzzzzzzzzz
My Sarah went to York for the weekend. York is one of my favourite places but I stayed home with Maisie and had a girly weekend with her. Sarah hit the shops while she was there. I love quirky stuff, so when Sarah saw this she knew I would love it. Round and round we go …..
This lovely rotating candle is mesmerising. You light the candle and the heat makes the carousel go around and round. I’m such a lucky happy stitcher.
So, that’s my report for today. I’m so pleased my mojo is finally coming back. I seemed to be going thru the motions everyday for such a long time. Now I am actually enjoying what I’m doing and I look forward to stepping into my sewing room and being creative. I hope you all have a super cosy and creative evening. Until next time,
Let’s all keep stitching.
