I love what I do during the day (and some nights). Some people call it a hobby, or obsession, and some think it's work and still others think it's a waste of time.
You might be asking yourself...."what is she talking about this time"? Why sewing and quilting, naturally. Is there anything else better to talk about? Not for me. Let me explain.
I've been trying to sew up some of this cute flannel that I bought several years ago. Yes, it was on sale........and I just had to get lots of it! I think I bought too much....what do you think? The boxes are overflowing. Don't believe me? Here......I'll show you one part of it that I can't even get in my fabric closets. NO...I'm not showing you the rest of it. I made good use of one of my AccuQuilt GO boxes too!
After a couple weeks......here's a look/see at what I accomplished with some of that flannel using my rag quilt GO die.
Raggedy Ann & Andy raggy quilt.
Pink Paisley & Butterfly raggy quilt.
Brown and Gold Peace Symbol raggy lap quilt.
Now, GO back and look at that first picture again.........that's 'AFTER' I made these 3 raggy quilts too! Jeez! I'd better get to sewing faster, or sleep less.
As most of you know, I have an ETSY Shop...and you can visit it here.
Keeping it stocked is almost a full time job and keeps me very busy. But, like I said at the beginning of this post.......I love what I do.
Today I used my GO cutter & cut 3 different fabric colorways into quilt strips for Jelly Rolls; browns, pinks, purples. That's 180 strips just for today.
And that doesn't count the 660 fabric charm squares I cut earlier this week. (I didn't take pictures of them at the time 'cause I was on a roll and a cutting frenzy.....but I can show you one of my storage drawers.)
So.....now I ask you. Is it a hobby, obsession, work, or waste of time?
Thanks for visiting.
