... I started to think about sewing today in the 'House of the Sick'. All visitors to us for the holidays have now been cancelled. The freezer over flows with food I made in advance. I eat the cookie mountain with abandon. I avoid the germs, and am getting bored senseless.
So there was only one thing to do. Get the fabric out. After all, I no longer need to keep the dining room table free for sumptuous buffets of food for guests. The gingerbread house got shoved to one end of the table. But I thought you might like to have a peak at it anyway.
I've been contemplating what to make first for 2013. First on my list of 'must do' projects are my long overdue bee blocks for various bees. Some I can show you and some I can't. But all will be done before too long. The fabric was cut for Cindy's blocks.
And I raided the girls' maths kits for a compass to draw circles for Sarah's blocks. Oh, and used my handy dandy mini rotary blade to cut out those circles. It is amazing! Love it already. Who knew I needed one of these and so soon too?!
I fished around in my stash and found the bulk of a layer cake of Salt Air. I want to make a quilt for someone special to me and this line seems very appropriate for her. I paired up squares and pinned them together in preparation of sewing lots of quarter square triangles.
And then I dug up this delicious pile of ten inch squares that were sent to me as an extra in the For the Love of Solids swap last winter. I have always been in such awe of this gorgeous pile that I knew I wanted them to not go straight in my stash but for most of them to be used in a quilt together. I have finally decided which design I want to go with. I am ready to start cutting. But scared too as I love this stack so much I don't want to mess it up.
That's as far as I got today. But it was enough to make me feel better mentally. Gave me something to focus on and has my mind all stirred up and ready to sew again. Woohoo!
