Time in the sewing room ......

is so wonderfully theraputic :)   I spent a few hours with my friend Cynthia in her shop, Cynthia's Ark, yesterday.  I was motivated to get back in the sewing room on my return home.  I have been quite busy with camera club secretarial duties, and after spending time sorting through some stuff in the sewing room after I was able to acquire some shelves (see my post HERE), I was itching to get my foot back on the sewing pedal!

First up, I finished my Christmas Block for my September partner.
Christmas Ornament Block

I have decided to step down from being the Co-Ordinator of this Christmas Swap.  I have been doing it for 3 years & 8 months, and I think it is time for a change.   I really want to spend more time in the sewing room, and less on the computer doing swap admin stuff - it can be very time consuming process.  The reins will be handed back to the group's founder, SueB, in preparation of the October swap.

Then I got to finish off one of the Farmers Wife Sampler blocks, that was half complete when I started rearranging everything for the new shelves.  I thought I had lost some of the pieces, but I found them.  I wondered why some of the pieces did not come together as nicely as my last block, and I remembered that I had not starched these pieces :(  so there was a little bit of stretching on the HSTs

Block 13: Buckwheat

I am happy enough with it :)  I may redo it, when I redo some of the others .... I may not LOL

This is what motivated me to get back sewing ............

I saw this up on Cynthia's shop wall ............. I just have to make this one!  Already playing with fabric combinations in my mind LOL

Thank you for visiting my blog today - I hope you have a good day - any day doing something you love makes it a good day ;-)

Doing what you like is freedom. Liking what you do is happiness.
