Fabric became quilt blocks last night…well, early this morning.
I cut the pieces out last night. I just cut a few, as the project is still in the experimental stages yet. I fell in love with Carole’s block @ Quilting Adventures. I couldn’t get it out of my mind. So I’m playing around with these fabrics. Hopefully, I’ll make real progress this weekend. Last night, by the time I made the commitment to cut the fabric, I was exhausted from the day --- so I got ready early this morning and stitched a couple of seams.
If I could sew every morning before the day began, the world would definitely be a better place for me…

It’s warming up here—to the middle 30’s, and the winds are dying down, so I’m hoping to get out some this weekend. Don and I are making a conscience effort to clean out drawers and closets and get a little less sentimental about our junk and de-clutter the place.

My Sunday school kids are taking bagels and adding peanut butter and birdseed for our craft this week.

You have no idea… well you probably do… how much fun I had putting these squares together this morning…I think I can deal with the rest of the day now.

Gratitudes:
1. Family not killing me when I’m in a bad mood.
2. Tacos last night
3. Snow crunching this morning as I walked on it.

These are going to be lovely blocks. I am so glad you got to do some sewing. It will make your day lighter and give you something to look forward to. Happy Friday!

I really enjoy working on my quilting very early in the morning too. I have to confine that to the weekends unfortunately, I would love to be able to do that before work every day!

Look at that . . . I knew you would find a darling project in that cupboard *s*

What great blocks...I used to get up an hour early when I had the shop, get my coffee and head upstairs...I would sew for an hour and it was wonderful...great way to start the day.

Isn't it amazing how much better our day goes and our outlook is when we get to retreat to our sewing rooms, even for 15 minutes!

Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment.

Another quilt blog! I'm starting to think that maybe I need to get back into quilting. So many beautiful patterns.

I feel lucky to have time to sew while the girls are off to school. I definitely have to make my own time, or it doesn't happen.

Great fabric choices. I can't wait to see more!

Those are lovely blocks. I can certainly understand how sewing a little every morning can make you feel better. If my sewing room wasn't right next to our bedroom I'd get up early and sew on the weekdays and not just the weekends.

I came here via Nicolette's blog. You have a very pretty blog. I love to sew in the morning too. It sets the tone for the day!

I love it when my morning routine allows for 5 mins. of sewing before work!
