This morning, I looked at my to do list and wished for a few minutes in the sewing room- just a few! I haven't been able to play in there for a week or two, and I'm going through withdrawal!
I walked by and sighed, then had a flash of inspiration!
A few years back, I read Rayna Gilman's book , "Create Your Own Free Form Quilts". I loved the idea of sewing random bits together without a plan, then finding something to do with it later. She calls the random piecing "therapy sewing". I had started doing it with a small pile of scraps some time ago, but have never done much with it. I took out the pile of strips I had sewn and decided to spend a few minutes playing with them.
A short time later, I had a few new pieces to play with when I decide to try and make something with them. Mine won't be great works of art. I am not an artist. But I can play with them next time I need to use up some creative energy to get me through the day .
I have finally finished the last page in the calendar I have been
working on. The dates are useless, but I plan to hang the pictures over
the dollar store calendar I bought for 2017. I angled this photo so
the metallic and sparkles I used show up.
I am grateful for:
Macaroni and cheese
Having nowhere to go for a couple of days
A cuddle from Jonathan
