I joined a quilt along! Thanks to Corey at http://www.littlemissshabby.com/. I love her blog and I really like her too. She always answers any questions I have. This is the second sew along I have done with her. I also did the Birdie Stitches. Those were embroidery squares, and so much fun.
This is what I have worked on so far. It is the first block. I am not much of a 'read directions' sort of gal and it has been challenging for me in a good way. As I was sewing along last night I got to thinking how quilting or piecing is much harder than knitting.
I just learned to knit last year. It took some effort on my part to stick to it and I am happy I did. I love to knit! It is so relaxing and meditative. I can knit while watching a TV show. I knit while my girls are doing their math. I can knit in the car. I even bring my knitting to meetings!! As much as I love sewing and piecing and quilting I cannot say I find it relaxing. It is fun for me because it makes me think and it is sometimes difficult to make something fit right. Many times I have to cut something again and redo things. When I decided to stop for the night I really felt satisfied that I had accomplished something nice. I am now at the point in the block that the little pieces get sewn together to finish the block. I am excited, and nervous about it.
Now if I could just narrow down my projects to just two or three or even four I may get something finished!!
It is a mess. I know right where everything is though. It is an organized mess and it is so much fun!
