Sometimes things happen for a reason, and sometimes things happen for no reason at all.
Sometimes it is time to sit down, think and regroup, and this has been one of those weeks.
The big question has been - What is important to me ?
Having come delivered as a heap of 2.sorting body parts, I sometimes so meet myself in the (swing)door, wanting to do so much more than what I can, and what is good for me!
Well - knitting is NOT good for me, as I can not be happy with doing just a couple of needles a day, so knitting is so out of here!
A good friend got my knitting yarn, books and needles this week - and we are now both happy about that :-)
Top on my priority to do list is sewing, by machine and by hand, piecing and stitchery!
My sewing, my friends and my family - Yes - that's what is important to me :-)
I had the pleasure of attending a good and fun inspiration lecture given by Helle Løvenskiold this week, and I have had some ideas spinning in my head since then. Thanks Helle :-)
First, I Need to get some older work out of here, or rather out of my WISP (work in slow progress) box - as the quilt in progress on top of this post.
It was started in April 2009, and how it turned out did not really fit my taste back then. I see I have already then thought about putting some light fabric into the work, before it got put away and forgotten.
I loved the Jelly Roll the fabrics comes from, even if it was a bit out of my favourite colour palette. (Hemming House by Moda)
It is really growing on me as I work, but I am so particular about how my blocks meets, so the seam ripper has come to good use ;-)
I am so looking forward to come to the quilting stage of this one - I have a plan :-)
Back to the sewing machine :-)
