I'm in a mood. A finish ALL the things mood. I think it has something to do with finding out the owner of the house we rent has decided not to sell it right now. There's such a relief and joy from not being forced to move. And, it might have something to do with losing my crafty room for the sake of a home office for my now working from home husband. Suddenly there is so much less room for storing in process projects. No WIP is safe. I want to finish them all. Now.
That's not quite practical. There's still laundry and grocery shopping and I have a lot of WIPs. But, I've made a list in order of effort required to finish and I'm attacking them one by one.
First up, was the pillow project my kids convinced me to let them start over Spring Break.
They raided my bin of 2.5" squares, picked out the ones they liked, and arranged them. They sewed them together according to their differing abilities. Sam was in charge of the petal while I guided his through. Ellery sewed hers all on her own while I pressed for her. Anna sewed and pressed about half of hers all on her own before she got bored and wandered away. They've been cluttering up things since. Well, they were the first thing on my list. I finished sewing Anna's, quilted them all, trimmed and backed them. They stuffed them and I handsewed the opening. It didn't even take that long and they all are so proud of them.
One project down. Many more to go.
And, as a added bonus- some other photos from our little week-filled vacant lot photo shoot.
Sure, these four photos are great. The other 50 or 60 are not. Not exactly what you'd call a successful photo shoot.
