I'm linking up again this week to Kate's 15 minute challenge .
I've had a re-think about the way I sew and craft and I've realised I just can't do it every day. And when I don't - I feel like a failure. Some days my creative mojo is completely absent and forcing myself to do something isn't good for my crafting karma or my disposition.
I only really enjoy sewing when I'm feeling creative and at one with my universe. And I usually intersperse it with wandering off to bake or read blogs or chase butterflies or play with Indy and Lola or look for lint in my belly button. Yes- I have the attention span of a 3 year old kid. When Kate originally started the 15 minute challenge she stated that each participant should decide what was going to work for them (15 minutes a day - 3 hours a week - whatever ) and I've decided to go back to that philosophy. So my Tuesday linky posts are destined to become a running diary of what I've been working on through the week, and what my loose plans are for the coming week.
This week, under the new world order I finished binding three quilts and I did some work on the Dresden quilt. I'm hoping to have the Dresden top completed by the end of this month so I'm gonna be getting jiggy with it a lot over the next few weeks. This week I sewed more days than I didn't- and a lot of it was hand sewing which I am learning to like...who would have thought that would happen!
And I am still working on this quilt although things have stalled because I passionately hate pressing seams and this quilt has 1076 of them. (OK perhaps I'm exaggerating slightly)
And I have some ideas running round in my head for this lot of fabric . Ms. Seams Inspired and I are doing a Christmas quilting project in July with the same fabrics (If I can get my act together and decide what we're going to do !)
I hope your crafting week was all you wanted it to be. Pop on over to Kate's to see what other crafty individuals have been doing this week .
