I had a need to do some mindless stitching and have sewn some string blocks using my scraps.
Our son moved back in with us for a month and was staying in my sewing room, so when he moved out I set up my machine and grabbed the first things I saw, some squares of paper and some string scraps and I sewed for several hours - such a tonic.
I love the way your mind can wander when sewing strings as the only things you have to worry about is whether the scrap is going to cover the paper where you want and the contrast between what is on the paper already and what you are adding. I often watch Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville Quiltcam while I am sewing or something from TV on demand. If you haven't caught up with Bonnie yet you should give it a try, it is great sewing along with somebody else - technology is just wonderful isn't it?
At this stage I don't know what I will use the squares for, I have a couple of ideas forming but will wait until I have made a few more before I decide.
I have also made some cushions for our window seat and I am quite pleased with them.
That corner is such a lovely place to sit with the sun streaming through the windows, my son nearly fell asleep the other day when he was visiting. It is a favourite place to sit and read awhile or just to think.
What has been under your needle? Leave a comment as I love getting feedback.
Until next time, happy stitching everyone.
