An hour of sewing here, and hour of cutting there and binding in between.
It is all happening, but at a relatively much slower pace than at what I usually operate.
Can't say I don't like it. But it still doesn't feel right.
But anyway, here are the projects currently taking up my time in this slower paced lifestyle.
Six out of twenty "Sister's Choice" blocks finished for a 62" x 82" "Hoppin' Stars" quilt purchased from Cobblestone Quilts in Townsend Massachusetts during the Schoolhouse Shop Hop last year.
Five out of twenty blocks for the 59" x 72" "Autumn Stars" quilt. I purchased this kit awhile ago from the Missouri Star Quilt Company.
Purple and yellow four patches for a purple and pink "Bricks and Stepping Stones" quilt, a Bonnie Hunter pattern found on her blog under the free patterns tab.
Finally, more chevrons for the king sized "Celtic Solstice" quilt that just seems to go on and on.
I have many more sewing projects in my head that could be added to the mix, but I think these four are enough for now.
Oh yes, I forgot. "Garlic Knots" blocks that get made in between the chevrons when I am at Open Sew at the shop. That would make five if I did them at home, but so far I have resisted.
Going slow, one block at a time, sewing no more than 45 minutes to an hour at a time.
It is tough, but still doable, this going slow business.
But I am thankful that going slow is still an option.
