Do you ever wake up in the middle of the night
just waiting for it to be morning so you can go sew?
I'm too much of a chicken to tiptoe downstairs
to the basement and sew at 3am.
What if all the spiders and boogeymen
are down there partying?
Will I interrupt?
Will I look out of place in my underwear?
So I toss and turn in bed until sunlight peaks in the windows.
This purse has kept me feeling restless at night.
I love making quilts.
But I forget how satisfying a smaller project can be.
I started this purse project at Corrie's house.
Then I found my Prince.
Can you please tell me what to do with the jelly roll?
I can't get enough of this line!!
I love the blues and corals.
Is it indigo blue? navy blue? I'm really not up to speed on my color wheel.
Then I quickly, and I mean, QUICKLY
cut it out with the Accuquilt.
Lickity split, I'm in hexagon heaven.
I've done hexagons by hand for years.
twisted my arm convinced me to try sewing them.
Put in a good audio book and I was good to go.
The thing I love most about this project
is that I can use a charm pack and see
all of the charms together in close proximity.
Now my life would be complete,
if only Corrie lived in close proximity to me.
