It’s heard to believe it has been a year since I started working from home due to the pandemic. I don’t miss going into the office as I love getting back the time that I spent commuting. And that means more crafting and quilting time for me!
While I’ve had my ups and downs over the last year, I’ve really struggled over the last month. I may have blogged these last few weeks but I have worked hard to not stop sewing and crafting. And it has been good therapy.
My guild requested place mats for shut ins that are being delivered through a local meals on wheels program prior to Easter. Hearing this gave purpose to my sewing. I made 17. The 18th fell victim to a tragic serger accident. I’m happy to say no one was hurt other than the place mat.
The pattern is from Quilt Social though I did modify it slighty as I wasn’t cutting 2.75 inch strips.
I’ve continued to make pillowcases for Comfy Cases . When they picked up the pillowcases I had made a few weeks ago they dropped off some donated fabric for me to make more! I may have dipped into my fabric stash to add a bit of pizzazz to a few of the cases.
Quilt wise I’ve worked on this scrappy 16 patch and 4 patch quilt.
I can’t say I love it as I’m finding the background fabric a bit busy with the already busy four patches and 16 patches. I’ll likely donate this to the care home where my father lived as it will brighten someone’s day. Who knows, once it is quilted and bound I might actually like it.
I’m glad I’ve kept crafting and quilting through the blues as I definitely feel that doing so has helped improve my mood!
