I went to the chiropractor again today and he cracked my neck again and this time it didn't hurt as much. After picking up kids, I started some string blocks. I LOVE string blocks. I don't LOVE making them. They take too long for my tastes. I like things that I can make in one hour. But, today I needed to work on something that didn't matter if it got finished or not. Today, I just needed to sit and sew and see colors and feel the fabric move between my fingers.
I started 11 string blocks.
Then after dinner and homework, I started cutting scraps. I'm working on building up my 2 1/2 inch strips. I'm finding more and more great patterns for using these and it is a great way to cut up scraps quickly and easily without having to think much.
I'm working on doll quilts for my son's class. I have one done and am not too pleased with how it turned out. I quilted it on my regular machine and it puckered a little bit because I didn't use a walking foot to do the quilting. Live and learn. I have a second top done and am waiting to get a couple more done before throwing them on the quilting machine to practice some fancy stitches.
It felt good to do something today. I worked for about an hour in total and got a lot done.
No more waiting. No more wishing. No more stalling. Time to get back to work.
