Finally Some Sewing...

After almost a 3 month hiatus, I finally pulled my sewing machine out of storage, dusted her off and sewed something!  My quilt bee does a HST (half-square triangle) swap the first Wednesday of every month.  Before I packed up my machines, I made enough of them to swap for May, June and July figuring that surely the renovation would be done before August.  Oh well.  We can see that didn't happen.  All my fabric is also packed into boxes (that I can't get to right now), so I had to go to the quilt store to buy enough fat quarters to make these.

It felt good to sew something after such a long break.  In fact, it's actually just a warm up.  I also get to spend this weekend sewing with my mom.  So maybe I'll start sharing something besides renovations pictures again!

Rejoice in our confident hope. Be patient in trouble, and keep on praying.

  1. Have a great visit! Maybe I can talk my mom and sis into sewing something with me while they are visiting me this weekend? LOL

  2. On gosh, that had to be hard to go shopping for fabric! ;-) LOL Have a great weekend!

  3. It has been hard for you to not be able to sew!

  4. I bet it felt good to be back at the machine! I finally have the sewing room side finished and only lack a little on the longarm side. I sewed up a table runner yesterday and that did feel good too!
