This week I have been swamped with reading for school (good thing my other favorite hobby besides sewing is reading) but I have managed to take a break every now and then to spend some time at the sewing machine. I find that when I take time for myself I am much more productive in my studies.
I decided to sew up a few city sampler blocks. At first I wasn't sure if I would like piecing these blocks because they are so tiny (they finish at 6x6) compared to the 10-12 inch blocks I usually sew. However, I was overjoyed to discover that sewing these together has been cathartic and actually relaxing.
On Saturday I am going to a sewing retreat with some of my local sewing friends for the day and I hope to get a lot more finished on this, plus get some work done (aka finish cutting and start piecing) on a star quilt I'm working on. I also want to do some work on a few patterns I'm writing. Oh and I want to sew 2 bags too. Hmm...I wonder if I should prioritize my projects??
I'm linking up to Lee's series over at freshly pieced. Be sure to check it out to see what other projects people have been up to this week.
