Low-jo...

I am blaming the season's change on my lack of sewing mojo ;) But I haven't been idle, I've instead finished a baby quilt (handquilted) for my newly born nephew in California, making some simple quilted place mats for my MIL (machine quilted) and planning other patchwork related stuff. I still can't bring myself to finish my tardy skirt, but also feeling quite stubborn about wanting to finish it before cutting into some lovely wool knits I purchased (oops, yeah I did purchased some fabric during the now not so recent meetup with local sewing folks :) ). So, I quilt instead. Which is amazing to me because while I love to do patchwork since young, I absolutely hate the part where you finish it into a quilt, with batting and then bind... I do know that quilting is sewing too ;) but at least I do not have to fiddle with fit issues. Some part of my brain is getting some rest, while I am giving other parts some workout!
