Stuffed Up and Mentally Blocked
I’ve been trying to motivate myself to work on a big, self driven project all week. All month, actually. No dice. Isn’t it funny how when you’re working, you find all of this time to do other things, like crafting and web surfing and etsy-shop-updating? Well, now that I have all of this free time, I’m not sure what I want anymore. Sigh. On top of that, I’ve caught Paul’s cold. So, Law and Order Marathons are looking pretty good right now.
But today I went ahead and started on my sister’s baby quilt. I have a very Nike attitude when it comes to quilting, and crafting in general: I just do it. So, I cut up a bunch of strips and lay them together, and if I like it, I sew them. Trust me, it will all work out in the end.
Here’s a portion of the first long strip. I think there will be 5 of them for a hefty crib size quilt. It’s nice to think that this one won’t take 7 months to make (I hope!).
