Lately I am trying to connect more with my former 15 year old self.
It seems that she knew what she wanted but too afraid to stand out, be different, you name it...
I used to do patchwork, just taking small scraps of fabric and sewing them together.
This past February I decided to go back to it. It has been such an amazing experience as it teaches me to S-L-O-W down!
My first project is a welshed brick pattern, just a sampler to practice cutting, stitching, basting etc.
I picked the fabric at Jo-Ann and I just allowed the colors to speak to me.
Whenever I look at my sampler quilt, I am just amazed!!
Now I am assembling it and as I sew by hand, I can't help notice that I am not thinking about my dissertation, other worries...I just have to be in that moment and stitch.
I am really glad I am doing this again!
I can't wait to make new ones and who knew that buying fabric could be addictive??
