Yes, indeed, a very long Spring Break!! I will spare you all the details, but my time away from blogland has been quite productive and restful. Spring here in Indiana has been lovely and we've enjoyed warmer than normal temperatures. Soon my little garden will be blooming and producing fresh salads. Of course, there was Easter with grandchildren, and flowers from the florist. But most of all, there has been sewing... none of which is finished, but much progress on all projects. I've tried for years to only have one project at a time, but it never has worked well for me. When I have a new idea, it takes over all my creative energy, until it's developed to a point where I can see the end. This is not a good habit to have. It results in many half finished works, in little plastic bins on my shelves. But as time has proven, eventually I do get them done, so I've stopped fretting over it.
I've done a bit of machine quilting before, and really enjoy the process. I know there will be a learning period, but since I've been machine quilting with my Singer 301 for years, I hope to be quilting without problems quickly.
Spring cleaning has also been happening here. It's been a long process this year, as furniture has been moved, rooms rearranged, and still a bathroom to finish tiling. My summer sewing room has yet to be completed though. I'm making room for a daybed in there, and selling one of my commercial machines to make room. In fact, I think there is a yard sell in my future.
I'll be showing you some of my new projects this week! Enjoy the rest of the weekend!
