Summer Sewing : :

Yesterday I took and shared this photo, after entering my sewing room for the first time in ten days, with a smile and thought that one of the very best parts of going away for a long vacation, is the coming home again.

One of the very best parts of going away for a long vacation -- coming home again.

I really missed this space and had been missing it even before we left. The busy Summer days never leave much time for sewing, do they? It's been a struggle to keep up with my shop, deadlines, and this blog these last several weeks, more so then I remember previous Summers being. I'm always reminding myself how generous the long Winter's are for work & sewing time, when I start to miss it or feel behind. These sweet days of Summer are not forever, they are happening now, and I need to enjoy them.

But today, since afternoon rain and thunderstorms are on the way, I will be sewing! I truly need it. I plan to head straight to the Monthly Sparks bundle I shared last week!

I've already decided on a simple, easy quilt. A quilt that isn't needed, that has no deadline to be finished, and no set pattern even. If at the end of today, I have a new quilt start to share tomorrow, that will be lovely. But really, in this particular case, a finished object will just be a bonus. It's the sewing that I'm really after, and the sewing itself that is precisely what I need and am so grateful for!

  4. I have always loved summer, but as I get older I tend to stay inside more often. The heat and I just do not love one another the way we did a few years ago. Which means, I do get to spend quite a bit of time sewing. I agree that summers are a time to enjoy each and every moment because of my experience now....so do sit back and enjoy! I love the fabrics that you have chosen for your quilt project. I am especially drawn to your first white with the variety of shapes and colors. Have a fabulous time creating and enjoying summer!
