Anyway, on Sunday, I've cleaned up the sewing room and ran the vacuum. I've put everything away. EVERYTHING!!! After a stressful morning, a clean slate is what the doctor called for. All those fabrics around me were screaming to be use in this project or that project, others were reminding me that I have promised to do this quilt and that quilt and ... oh my! shut the front door! (Paste a deep slow relaxing sigh HERE.)
When things calmed down, I was able to accomplish a few things. Lots of baking for the boys and laundry too but I'll skip talking about that since it is so boooooring! In the sewing room, I did manage to stir a quilt in the right direction...I think.
Previously, I have made these blocks
They are scrappy and pretty bright. Then I did the Spool blocks which used up the beige scraps and it gives them an "older" look, if you know what I mean.
When I put the two together, it looked like a "whatever's left in the fridge" kind of stew. I didn't like it. So I tried to do some blocks with more beige and the spools with more whites. Like this.
I think I am getting somewhere...
... but I 'm not there yet.
So that was my Monday. Tuesday just vanished. Pouff!! And now it's Wednesday! This evening, I will sew borders on the crumb quilt. Hope you too can find your inner peace and piece some fabric together. :)
Until next time ... SMiLE ... and be awesome!
