Yesterday afternoon I perked up a bit (summer cold) and set up my makeshift cutting area in the laundry room next to the ironing board so I could make some string blocks for Heartstrings Quilt Project. Please click the link to read more about this wonderful group that is so flexible to work with. You can make your own quilts from start to finish and distribute them locally or just make the blocks and send them to a coordinator who takes it from there. With my UFOs lying in wait, the block option is my choice!
My large bin of strings is sitting on top of the dryer. In the basket are my "not so pretty" 5" charms that I cut in half to finish off the block corners.
I have become totally addicted to listening to audiobooks from the library on my iPhone while sewing (or scraping wallpaper!). I put my phone into the little red striped cloth bag and hang it around my neck while I'm moving around. If I'm sewing or if I'm not home alone I use my earbuds. So enjoyable! I still prefer to listen to music while I'm quilting for some reason, but other that I am always anxious to get further in my book.
HERE) for a special project using purple centers instead of the standard blue or red. So, I've got some catching up to do. Good thing these blocks are easy sewing... perfect for sick days or summer time!
