Sewing Again





Thursday I decided I needed to "make" myself sew in order to get back in the habit. I sewed together some fleece to give as a gift for a chemo blanket. I just have to fringe and wash it. Last night I sat down and added the final borders on my Spring Breeze and then I made and added the binding to my son's Blooming Ninepatch. Now to complete the hand sewing. It felt good to be sewing again. More pcitures as items are completed.

Here is a picture of the batik love I got in the mail from mamacrafty.



Here are some more detailed shots of the wall hanging my mother made for me.




Enjoy!

The quilt looks great! And your mom's quilt looks fantabulous! :)

I have had to force myself to sew a little something this week too to get myself back into the swing of things. Now, I have spent the last few hours cutting fabric so that I can sew and sew and sew!

Sort of like putting a smile on your face, I think. There's something that changes in our chemistry when we start that, eh? Love the stuff you're working on, and your moms quilt is lovely! How's hubby?
