Have you ever had a week with no sewing? Not a week when you're not doing anything because you're burned out on sewing, but a week when you desperately want to sew but have no time to do it? That's me right now. I keep walking past the classroom and throwing longing looks at my sewing corner...
Last night I finally got about half an hour to start cutting fabric. What a treat! I absolutely love the new Madrona Road collection -- my fat eighth bundle is from Amanda's wonderful Etsy shop -- and it was great to pull it out and start to play with it. There are at least two projects in the works here...I can't wait to see how they come together. My husband has promised me more time to sew this weekend, and I'm so looking forward to it.
There are now more than eighty of you in the Vintage Holiday flickr group, and I love seeing all the great pictures you're putting up of your blocks. I'll have the next two ready to show on Monday. These quilts are going to be so beautiful!
Meanwhile, I'd love to hear how all of you fit in your sewing time around your jobs and family life. How do you make it work?
