Yesterday, I finally got a little sewing time. Kelli and I figured out that it had been since the 2nd of April since I actually sewed anything. I think that is the longest time, in recent history, that I have gone without sewing. With Easter, Cincinnati and the funeral, there was just no time. I have been doing some car projects and will show them to you in the upcoming days, but that wasn’t sewing. Being the kids had cleaned, mowed lawn, and cooked, there wasn’t much for me to do except sew…so sew I did and what perfect therapy.
I am a little numb yet and didn’t have the gumption to dig for a project so I just started sewing what was sitting on the table. The project happened to my “My Blue (RED) Heaven”. I’ve had most of the blocks together for some time. I finished up the last 8 star blocks and started sewing the blocks together. I finished the center of the quilt.
The border pieces are almost sewn together too.
I have to find a fabric for the inner border yet….
It was the perfect project to work on. Something simple. Something that I didn’t have to think a lot about and something that made me feel like I accomplished a lot. I think I’ll keep plugging away on this and finish the top. It’s just the type of sewing I need. To see what others are working on, check out Patchwork Times.
