I Pieced!

 I am more excited about this than I can tell you!

Since the pandemic started I have been sewing nonstop.  But what I haven’t been doing is piecing anything for myself since I started to make masks.  Do not get me wrong.  I am grateful for the ability to sew and make masks and to help people in the community by making masks that are effective, well made and comfortable.  But, this has certainly been filling my days!!

This weekend, we went to the cottage, and, I didn’t take my big sewing machine with me!   I need the extras strength of my big machine to get through all of the layers of fabric - so not bringing it meant not working on masks!  And, believe me, I have brought masks with me to work on every single time we have gone to the cottage!  I am grateful for the work but it has been unrelenting!

So, instead, this weekend I brought part of a Sew Kind of Wonderful project that has been ready to be worked on for over 6 months!  I ONLY brought that.  This was pretty big for me.  And, as the weather wasn’t great - I sewed!  I put on a couple of movies and I pieced!!!

I know it doesn’t look like much but MAN it felt good!  It felt good to piece, to rotary cut, to trim, to press and it get this done!!

The old saying - if you do what you love you’ll never work a day in your life is true!  You will never work A day - you will work EVERY day, ALL day, non-stop LOL!!  Good thing I LOVE what I do!
