When one wakes up at 5:30am, and isn’t being picked up until 10:30am one has time to SEW!
5:30 may sound early, but it is actually 7:30 Wichita time – so I’m considering the 8 hours I got as a total WIN WIN WIN in the sleep department!
I’m writing this little ditty to post ahead, as I’ll be busy with two lectures on Pacific West Coast Time ---and I wanted to share what I got done this morning.
So here we are!
I only packed one piecing project knowing that I wouldn’t have time to sew in Wichita. That was a crazy trip with hardly time to sleep, let alone sew!
But this morning….my soul was centered by some simple piecing of my on-point 4 patch units.
This little featherweight belongs to Lexi – and she purrs like a kitten! Blocks come together easily with Pandora playing on the Jim Brickman channel in the background….
It wasn’t long before I had this laid out on the Design Floor:
A Baker’s Dozen! 13 blocks!
These aren’t trimmed yet – I need a bigger mat and a large square ruler, so the trimming will wait until I get home. But I’m making good progress.
And I am loving that aqua solid as the setting triangles!
Four Up Close!
There is every kind of fabric in here. And I think that is why it works for me. Recycled plaids from shirts, civil war repros, some brights and novelties and old calicoes…color, color, color and more color!
Having this bit of respite to sew this morning has reset my stress level to ALMOST zero –and I’m ready and recharged and eager to go give these two lectures today!
Pick up in 10 minutes…I better run!
