Hello readers, happy Sunday to ya! I wish I had something to post with picture goodness, but don’t. Perhaps within the week.
Sometimes I look at what is ahead of me and get overwhelmed. This past week my boss thought kindly to redirect a fabric donation slated for goodwill. I gladly accepted what was mostly deemed yardage. Large pieces. I segregated the pieces I didn’t like or would not use. I then gave that box to a member of the local piece makers group. She in turn, donated what was left to another member. One fabric stash became a member of 4 people’s stashes in less than 4 days. Now my cup runner has over. There were 5 yard plus pieces which will make backing for quilts. But because I have so much, it kinda messes with my head. I need to figure out where I should put it. My dresser and buffet (aka my sewing nook) is already filled. I am starting to encroach on other areas of the house. I have a box of vintage sheets, a box of wool, two totes of started projects, two projects I am working on in a shoebox, and a quilt top waiting to be quilted….what to do? This is interrupting progress. My work surface is about 13×13 for cutting and my machine sits beside that. I have to be efficient with space. I feel compelled to start cutting the pieces for the vintage sheet quilt so the box would deplete drastically, it will still be a box of fabric. But, in the back of my mind I want to refrain from starting another project. Sew many ideas are swarming. I am afraid to proceed, I don’t want to let the swarm sting me.
Yesterday amongst the mess I did manage to sew 3 more en Provence mystery quilt blocks that are really not a mystery anymore. Because of so much bad feng shui I sewed them together wrong….see what I mean it messes with my head, makes me scatterbrained like the scattered mess about me.
