This is what procrastination looks like in my sewing room today:
That’s right. Instead of working on current WiPs, I started a new one. This is just a little mini quilt though for my sewing room.
I have two kids. I sew for sanity. This silly little phrase that sums it all up kept going through my head when I was trying to sleep last night, so today was dedicated to turning it into something fabric-y.
But now I’m stuck. What do I use for binding? Black and white stripes, or black and white teeny dots would be ideal. Of course I don’t have either of those. I have these:
I’m leaning towards the black solid. It’s that or wait til I’m next at the shops and hope to find just the right fabric. Not sure if I’m that patient or if my motivation will stick around that long. Oh the dilemma!
Meanwhile, this bit of fun has kept me from thinking about how to finish this big WiP:
Yep. No more progress on that one. I’ve fallen out of love with it. I keep thinking, but what am I going to do with it when it’s done?! It’s only a smallish quilt and I don’t want to make it much bigger (a few borders, that’s it). So I think that idea is stopping me from working on it.
Ah well – I find I work better when I’m motivated. Quilting’s a hobby after all, don’t want it to become a chore. Else it won’t do such a good job at keeping the crazy away.
Linking up with WiP Wednesday over at Freshly Pieced.
