A Little Bit of Sewing and A Little Bit of De-Cluttering

Some days I just can't get into the mood to sew.  I don't know why. I usually have at  least two projects going at all times, so if I am not in the mood to sew on one of them, the other one will usually strike my fancy that day.  But, there are days when I just don't feel like sewing at all. Usually going to my quilt room will get me in the mood to do something, though. Some days I just refold fabric from my stash. Other days I look at quilt books or old magazines. After being there for a bit, I will invariably end up sitting at my machine and sewing!

Saturday I was in the mood to de-clutter.  I pulled out a large stack of old quilt magazines and decided this is the day to tear out any quilt patterns I may ever want to make in the future and throw the rest of the magazines out.  So, I reduced the large stack on the right down to the small stack on the left. It felt good.  I have about two more stacks just like it~I can't wait to get my hands on them too.  :)

Sunday I actually got to sew for a few minutes~with emphasis on A FEW MINUTES. Since our youngest daughter, her husband and their three little girls are staying with us right now there were constant interruptions from young ladies in need of my attention.  I ended up walking away from my machine with the needle in the middle of a seam after having sewn for about 3 minutes total.  Oh well~their visit will be over in the blink of an eye and my quilt will still be there. Granddaughters trump quilting every day. It was fun to sit down at my machine again~the first time since before Thanksgiving! I need to get back in there soon.  I have the itch to sew!!!
