What Do You Do When...

...your Mojo goes missing? I had to go on a major hunt for mine but I think maybe I found it again. I don't like it when my Mojo is missing. It makes me whinnie.

I can't seem to shake this darn cold so have spent lots of time pouting, sitting, knitting, tv watching and napping. I'm tired of doing that. So yesterday I decided I would sew while I tv watched. I've said before how obsessed I am with Grey's Anatomy and am now watching season 3. The problem is that I can't watched it in my sewing room--Netflix only comes through the blu-ray thingie and that is in the living room.

My solution was to get out my current quilt as you go string project and open up my beloved Singer 401A and sew for a few hours in the living room. Hopefully by the time this GA obsession is over, this quilt will be finished, my batting scraps and sting bins will be reduced to almost nothing and that yellow fabric will be gone. Reality says there are enough batting scraps, strings and yellow fabric for another quilt.

**I use the tutorials from Sew Many Quilts - Too Little Time blog when making my Quilt As You Go String Blocks. How to Make the blocks here and how to put them together here.

LOVE that machine! That is the same kind I learned to sew on and my mom still has it. I am a Gray's Anatomy fan, also. We record them and watch later. Can't miss that! Your string quilt is really coming along, and I wish you wellness and lots of mojo in the coming weekend!!

What a beautiful quilt you are making! I love it! Do you know of a site that has the instructions for what you are making....quilt as you go string quilt? My beloved Mother was still sewing up a storm on her
401A when we lost her just over a year ago. That machine did not have a speck of lint in it and was clean as a whistle! A precious machine for sure.

Hope you are well soon and feel like doing all you want to do.
