This past weekend there were a few moments when I could step away from the unpacking of “stuff’ the hanging on the walls of “stuff” and all of the settling in and simply go through the motion of stitching pieces together with machine and thread.
When I sit down to sew, even in the midst of upheaval and chaos – albeit planned upheaval and chaos – my soul finds its happy place.
What’s not to love about stitching away with Annie Get Your Gun playing on an old laptop saved for its Cd player capability?
This is another one of those reasons that I love having my projects cut out and kitted up so that I don’t have to travel with yardage. Just grab a couple of prepared baggies and sit down and sew.
This project has been ongoing for many months now, built as one unit at a time as I found time.
There have been times when it has sat idle for a couple of weeks while I was doing other things, but I always came back to it. I've been captivated by i t!
