And I have to say, it felt awesome to package up these bee blocks and get them in the mail. Thank heavens for online postal service, so I didn't even have to go out of the house (which I haven't left since said cold came on, so I am looking a little disheveled :) These blocks are for Charlene, and I just love the happy little log cabins!! So fun!!!
And then, on Tuesday I got up a little energy and took one of my Christmas presents out of the box and set it up ;) How cool is this Literacy Stand for my patterns!!! It will make it so much easier when I go to teach, I have so many patterns now, they don't all fit on the table ;) And I just love how neat and tidy this will make things going forward!!!
I have been sewing Selvage Strings on and off this last week when I feel up to it. I am just about ready to work on the tutorial, I think. I am really loving making these blocks, and they have been a happy point in the last week. It's amazing how just sitting down to sew for a few minutes can even chase the blues of a cold away, for a little bit anyway ;)
And finally today, my brain was a little less foggy, so I started to work on writting my new pattern!!! No worries, I didn't work on the math part, just making the images, as I can do that with half a brain ;) My least favorite part of making a new quilt for a pattern, is obviously, the actual writting of it. Way more fun to cut it, piece it, and quilt it!!! And I had a great time quilting this new quilt after Christmas and wen't all out custom work on it!!! I have to say, I am pretty proud of the quilting :) More on this new pattern to come, and hopefully very soon!!! I can't wait ;)
So ya, a little of this, and a little of that ;) Like I said, I am so grateful that even when I feel pretty lousy, I can snatch little sewing sessions that lift my spirits and make me smile ;) And a few Clorox wipes to disinfect the sewing space each time, and I'm good to go :)
So how is your New Year going??? Are you doing a little of this and that as well, or going all out on something for the New Year???
