All of that was my way of avoiding the housework that awaits. AJ IS coming home this afternoon and I have spent the last 2 days playing – with no self-discipline at all. Vacuming, dusting, watering plants, laundry - you name it, I need to do it, so that is the basis for my side step into folk history. Anything to avoid the obvious.
I had an idea a couple of days ago, and yesterday was the day that I tried it out. I have a drawer of widowed quilt blocks - blocks that have been made and rejected for some reason or other - and a basket full of scraps.
IDEA: what if I made a crazy quilt-like sandwich of those items and then stitched them down with decorative stitches from my machine? I could make yards of fabric like that and then use the fabric sandwich to make purses or bags or ... something? (not that I needed another project you understand) What do you think?
