Are you finding some ME time? I've taken some lovely walks (I needed to breath and relax) and went and had my hair done today. We are to have a few days of rain, so being indoors will resolve to some 'de-junking'. Most people de-clutter - clutter is things that need to be put in their proper spot or passed on to someone who can use it or give to GoodWill. But this is just JUNK, and junk needs to be thrown out, so de-junking.
I pulled the last of my box of odds and ends to sort and kit for mini projects. I have been in a bit of a funk for the last few days as I had a horrible experience with some brand new fabric that just made me not want to even see or think of stitching while I sorted my mind. Playing with scraps does sooth my soul though.
Little baskets are fun and everything was all right at hand to make the process quick and mindless sewing.
Since I was up very early in the morning being restless - I had 50 of these little beauties stitched up (yes, I go nuts when I am away from the machine too long) before my SIL came to sew for a bit before we headed to the hairdresser.
And two baggies of components got put together to make these wonky stars.
I cleaned up the little cut-offs and cast aways from my SILs latest project. This will be finished up for a little doll quilt for the Mrs. Claus project. Pinwheels always make for a fun quilt.
The winner of the Jelly Roll of La Belle Fleur by French General is:
Ham and cheese sandwich or a salad.
This week's give away is the last of the May For Me celebration - I want to finish up all my give aways and mailings as I want to UN-Plug the last few days of the month for a little ME time away (important posts have been made and scheduled for release). And since it is also my Birthday week - something special.
'Oh Pinwheels' featuring Noteworthy. A complete kit that includes everything for the top and the binding - you just need backing and batt. You can see Debbie's tutorial for this specific quilt pattern HERE over on Moda Bake Shop.
Just leave a comment on what do you do to calm and sooth your soul? I will ship internationally, be sure I have a way to contact you. Comments close Weds, May 28 (12pm EST) with winner announced the next day.
**Karen - your e-mail is bouncing so I hope you can contact me - maybe you have a different e-mail as it is the yahoo Dmarc upgrade that is messing this up**
