Playtime

Sometimes you just need a bit of playtime.

I've been working my way through deadlines and secret sewing lately, and after finishing another project last night, I suddenly decided that I needed a break -- it was time to do something just for fun. I pulled out a pile of scraps from a recent project and went back to one of my favorite blocks of all time: the scrappy log cabin. Rainbow colors, simple straight line quilting, text prints...it checks all my happy boxes and makes such a beautiful pillow.

The back is a strawberry print by Emily Isabella for Birch Fabrics. I can never say no to strawberries.

So now this pillow is sitting on my favorite chair in the living room, waiting for me the next time I want to curl up with a good book. And I'm feeling refreshed and ready to go on again.

Playtime...always a good idea.

  1. I went into my sewing space to tidy up, this afternoon, and ended up playing for half an hour. It is good for the soul.

  5. I love that some of your logs have more than one colour or print in them. Most certainly a happy cushion!
