I might actually have a little progress to show today!
I haven't had a whole lot of time to sew this week with the holidays and traveling, but I got a tiny bit done.
And look at the progress being made since last week...
It may not look like much, but I like it. Our friendly workers were only able to come back one day to work since they started, but I'm amazed at how much they can get done. They blew insulation into our attic, took out the old flooring, replaced all the studs and are nearly done hanging the drywall. It is a bit of a pain trying to keep the kids out of their way and out of the mess, but will be so worth it to have our second bathroom functional again.
Enough of that, back to the sewing...
Ok, so not a lot of actual sewing was done, but I did decide on a pattern for my Hometown quilt and got the fabric cut. I'm going to make a "Road to Tennessee" quilt, which I thought was fitting since my hometown is in fact in Tennessee. I don't think this quilt is going to be for me, though, so I guess that part doesn't matter.
I also got my charms cut for the I-Spy Spoonflower swap. I love browsing Spoonflower and seeing all the fun designs though this is the first time that I have actually ordered anything from them. Honestly, I don't foresee me purchasing anything else. There isn't really anything wrong with it, but I almost didn't even like touching the fabric. Is that weird?
I keep thinking of all these things that I would like to get done before Christmas, but have not even gotten started yet, so there isn't any way I could get them done with out being majorly stressed and sleep-deprived. And that isn't really what the holidays should be about, is it?
So this morning as I was driving Wyatt to school I decided to just focus on making a few fun things to decorate the house and relax. I usually take the 2 hours or so that I'm home between trips to preschool to straighten up the house and put clothes away. This morning, I decided to sew instead. I've been wanting to make some fun pillow covers and decided to make one using Debbie's Mini "X" Quilt tutorial. It was great to just let myself sit and sew and not worry about the clothes I should have been washing or the gifts that weren't getting made. I would much rather make someone a gift when I have time to really give it the attention it deserves, not just throw something together just because I need it by a certain day. And, I know the people who will be getting them don't mind to wait either.
Since I finally have a little progress to show, I think it's time to link back up with Lee at Freshly Pieced for W.I.P. Wednesday!
