Design Wall Monday


When my world is in chaos and I can do nothing about any of it,
I retreat into myself and seek my quiet.
My quiet is in my sewing room.

It's been a while since I've spent so much time with just me, my machine, 
my thoughts and my prayers.


The borders for Midnight Flight are complete.
Now it's time to lay out the blocks and get them sewn together.
I'll have grandhelpers here today,
maybe it will happen or maybe it won't.


Next up were the exchange blocks for our Christmas Club party.
(It's not really called the Christmas Club, 
but I needed to name it. 😉 )
I can't believe I am this ready so early in the year!


Since I didn't have anything else ready to work on, 
I kitted up several more Oklahoma Backroads blocks.
All the piece for a block are pinned together, ready to lay out.
I'm using this quilt for my current leader/ender project.
And since I wasn't finished retreating,
I just sat and sewed several together.
Now I need to kit some more.


Several more blocks were added to the stack.


And of course some had to be layed out just to see. 😍

I can't believe I haven't done a DWM in over a month!
OMGosh, the things that are posted over there,
I can't wait to go visiting!!!
I truly love Monday in Blogland.

I think sewing soothes the soul for so many of us. I can get in a "happy place" mentally when I can escape with my fabric, machine, and music. Glad you are finding some relief working on these projects. Happy sewing! Andrea
