pinwheels!

From a baggie full of triangles to what will be nine complete pinwheels by the end of the day...



It took less than an hour of sewing. Not bad for one of those "I don't know when/if I'll ever feel like working on it" UFOS! I could have the whole top assembled if, for two days in a row last week, I hadn't decided that I felt rotten and wasn't going to sew.

The truth is that sewing lifts my spirits and makes me feel better. I need to remember that next time I'm feeling cranky about life.

I'm the same way when I don't feel great. I procrastinate sewing, but once I get started I don't want to stop. LOL

wow -- cute triangles quilt... are they cutoffs from Pineapple blossom over at Quiltville?

I am a sucker for red and white. And, one of these days I will make a red and white quilt for me. Well, a bigger one than the doll size I have already made.

Sewing as therapy--yep, it's true :)

Count me in on the spirit lifting of sewing. Sometimes, it is just going into the studio that makes me feel better. I have two days a week that I don't have time to enter the studio and then paperwork at home on the next day. I find that I have to talk myself over there but once there I almost can't leave I feel so good.
