I currently have two very selfish, very awesome long term projects: the epic Anna Maria Horner Medallion, and my Meadow quilt). If I chip away at them in little pieces between holiday and deadline sewing, I make progress on everything. I've been dreaming of which fabrics I'm going to cut in next; I'm going to need more of these rainbow strips, and so far, this is just from my scraps. I'm enjoying piecing them together at random, wonky angles. It's a freeing, therapeutic, and cheering activity!
Also this week: just like many of my projects, I am a work in progress. I've been surprisingly successful at keeping my new sewing room clean, but my fabric scraps got out of hand. After our latest move, the plastic drawer set that I bought from Walmart five years ago was at capacity. Even with all the scrap quilts I made this year, I'm always creating more scraps. Honestly, the plastic drawers were probably at capacity two years ago.
It didn't look like this all the time, I swear - just when the drawers opened!
I decided it was high time to address the scrap problem - throw some out (the teeny tiny pieces, the ones I'll never use because they are poor quality, etc.), pack some away to give away to the guild, and organize anew. Luckily, my sister had a set of wire drawers she wasn't using, and
I'm hoping to get some more selfish sewing in today or tomorrow because tomorrow is my 26th birthday! I might have an update post coming based on last year's post on turning 25... we'll see. Sewing and family first for today. :)
