Continuing on with the Weekly Special projects, I almost feel like I’m in factory production mode. I’ve been getting sets of similar squares ready to be stitched, then another set, and I’m about ready for a third set. It’s fine for the original pupose of always having a project ready to go and the discipline of continuous work, but I’m starting to feel like I’m in craft fair production mode…getting stuff done, but it’s not always thoughtful work.
I have a lot of time to think while I’m busily stitching away and that’s the question I’m asking myself today. Am I happy just having fun with needle and thread? Or, do I want to spend more time planning and thinking about the pieces I’m making, making with more meaning? No decision yet, but I am pondering that question.
In the meantime, here’s what I’m doing…
Only stitching, no beads or quilting or finished edges.
And I’m definitely having fun doing this!
Planning on quite a few beads on this one.
And I know that some blogs would only show small parts of 1 project at a time, drag it out in order to have more posts ready to go, but that’s just not me! I show you where I’m at, at the moment I get there.
All this coming week, we’ll be enjoying our grandson every day during his spring break. That means lots of fun, but very little sewing. That also means it’s a good thing to have ready-to-go-projects. I may not post the few stitches I take, but I will cherish every moment spent with AJ…much more important!
