Busy Busy Busy (Friday Foto Fun #2)
I can’t believe it’s already Friday! I didn’t have much time at all this week to sit down at my machine and sew. Have you ever gotten to the point when you are so busy, you end up not doing anything at all because you are in a type of analysis paralysis? I’m at that point and may be even further down that path! However, I do have a Friday share this week. I was able to force myself to sit down for about a few minutes to sew 2 of the 6 Month 3 blocks in the Long Time Gone BOM with Serendipity Woods.
YAY! They are each only 4.5″ squares, but hey progress is progress! I’m celebrating that as a huge win for me with the limited amount of time I had to quilt this week!
The additional effect of analysis paralysis is that my headspace gets all cloudy and doubtful of my own abilities, and my creativity takes a nose dive. But I’m a woman with a plan, at least about the creativity portion.
I saw on Instagram that Lorna Scobie published a new book called “365 Days of Art” It’s not about quilting, but definitely an art book to help jump-start some creativity. Lorna has some previews of her book on her Instagram feed. I am planning on doing the entire book from cover to cover, all 365 exercises. Does anyone want to join me? I’m still working out how I’m going to work through the challenges and when to start. More details later this month.
Purchase the book here (Amazon affiliate link) to join me in a creativity journey! Just as a note, outside of the Amazon affiliate link (which I think would get me 3% of the sale price), I’m not getting paid to advertise this book. I saw it on Instagram and thought it would definitely help me jump-start my creativity. They say creativity is a muscle, you just need to work it!
In case you missed it on Tuesday, my newest pattern, Flying Windmills, was released! I brought the quilt with me on my business trip. I’ve learned that bringing a quilt with me helps lessen the homesick feeling.
Here are my goals for this coming week!
Available time for quilting:
Saturday, Sunday, Wednesday PM
Projects I want to work on:
Goals for the Projects:
PBQ105: Sew top together
PBQ106: Use as Ender/Leaders
