trying hard

This has been a week of personal failure. I started traveling to the other office half time. I gained 5 pounds. The 2 hours of driving on commuting day leaves me several hours behind my usual schedule…. OK no more eating out, even subway. Packing a lunch. I am taking Zentangle stuff to do a 6 lesson course. I bought a book last year and never did it. I need to relaxation and creativity every day. I have more Zentangle books to do, too!!

By the way the work is the same. The office is beautiful and the staff very very nice. I feel like I am in a episode of the Twilight Zone because I used to work in this office 8 years ago and many of the people are the same…. we are just older. Ha!

My sewing is suffering. I did manage a little sewing last night and I made this t shirt and diaper cover. Ooops. The diaper cover has upside down pattern on the fabric. I am not finding many free clothes for 12 months like shorts. I am going with dresses, t shirts and diaper covers. I have fleece pants pattern. I may try that in a light knit. All free patterns found on a google search. Love free stuff. I have store bought patterns but they start at 4t.

I am long arming a lot. I have a twin quilt nearly finished and I have its sister quilt to do. I am trying to have all the customer quilts caught up. I have several family quilts as well as some of my own that I want to do nothing but crazy stuff on them…. customers don’t aways appreciate my free motion custom work, lol. It really is crazy!

The slow movement is catching on in the US after many years. It is a movement about enjoying life at a slower pace, enjoying the process and focus is more on creativity, connections and the journey. There has been a big movement in stitching. Please check out Mark Lipinski’s new blog    


… I have always been a slow stitcher and long armer…. yep this doesn’t mean all by hand and stuff.
