Well, a little is better than nothing…


Going into the long weekend of the 4th of July, I had dreams of actually getting a chunk of time to spend in my sewing room.

It was not to be.

I think I managed about a half hour. But still, that was enough time to put together the backing for the other of my jelly roll race quilts to be taken to a long-arm quilter.

Gee, look at that. I sewed one whole seam. Look at me go.

(Believe it or not, I had ironed the fabric. So much for that.)


And yet, despite the snail’s pace sewing, I still seem to find a way to collect for my stash. I’m blaming this one on those two wonderful books I posted about a few days ago. They have some wonderful designs for 2 1/2” strips! So, yes, when Missouri Star Quilt Company had some Laurel Burch on one of it’s daily deals, I bit.

I’m about to crack open the book with a cup of tea. It’s all about the dreaming, after all.
