Some Sewing


Don’t fall off your chair, or sofa, or bed or wherever you are reading this blog from…But I actually did some sewing for the first time in a long time, I must be feeling a bit better.
I got in and sewed up a couple of house blocks for the swap I am in,  I need to finish them by the end of this month, is there hope of that happening? Always…
I started out with paper piecing but that was too time consuming because it required my brain to be engaged and think about what I was doing…so what am I saying exactly? Well For ME (not saying this is so for anyone else) I need a lot of brain power to do the paper piecing so I don’t have to constantly “Reverse Stitch” and re-stitch a piece. I decided to do the much easier task of wonky houses…can you see the way I think? By doing wonky houses it does not matter if things are even or lined up properly, as long as they look like a house and they measure out right by the end…no problems.
I am hoping to get a bunch of them done this weekend, but we will see how I feel…
How about you? Are you sewing anything nice, do you have a project you would like to share?
Happy stitching
