I was mostly successful. I sewed two items this week: a purse and a skirt, both for my daughter. I started a flannel nightshirt for her too. And we are going through a huge pile of our favorite summer fabric, Tutti-Frutti, to decide what will become summer garments and what will be part of a patchwork picnic blanket.
Yes, we do have a lot of this fabric.
These are just scraps from garments already made. Every piece of this fabric holds a memory.
I also discarded a bunch of patterns and some ratty old quilt batting that had gotten dirty somehow. We tried to rid ourselves of some fabric but we are pretty careful to buy only what we really like, so we couldn't part with any of it.
So, I still have work to do but it's mostly pleasant work now: sewing! Turning this fabric into something useful and lovely. Tough job but someone's got to do it.
This week's theme is negative conversation. I have negative conversations with myself all the time. It's easy to do when there is fabric all over the floor in one room, camping equipment that needs to be put away in another room, and about 32 wet towels on the floor from the dog-washing adventure. When I start the negative talk I stop and pray. That usually fixes it for me. What about you?
