This week I created the little wonky star that's part of my miniQuilt Color Study. I finished my blue mini last month, and now I have the pink complete. I'm calling it "Abracadabra Audie" after my oldest because she and her sister are always turning each other into all sorts of crazy things with their magic wands. Then yesterday they were playing owl and chipmunk in my sewing room while I worked, so *poof* I managed a story quilt completely by chance!
I did just a teeny bit of "quilt rule-breaking" because I wanted light binding on the dark side of the star and dark on the light, so I had to join the binding strips at the corner. But it turned out ok after much fiddling and I achieved the look I was hoping for.
I also tried to finish my "super easy" infinity scarf... but after sewing the sides and flipping it around, I'm stuck on the last seam that requires handsewing. I started, and then a few inches in cut the thread and gave up! My handsewing skills are terrible. I need to revisit this some evening next week with a cup of tea and no rush so I can take my time and use tinier stitches.
All in all a good week. One project complete, one started, and all my fabrics for the next two washed and ironed. But better than what I checked off was that I was working in my sewing studio at least thirty minutes a day every day. For me the habit of making time to sew daily is what I most want to cultivate from this experience, so I'm happy that I'm well on my way. (I think it's 21 days that makes a habit? Yes? Just two more weeks to go!)
Ok, now it's your turn - how did your first week go as far as finding time daily? What did you work on?
