A year and a half or so ago I started work on a scrappy Double Wedding Ring quilt. I made a couple of arcs then stalled. Last year my friend Kaelin hosted a Double Wedding Ring quilt along on her blog. I thought, at the time, "Perfect! This will get me going again with my work." But, that didn't happen either. While mom was working on her quilt top here after Christmas, I took the time I had to do a little more work. The scrappiness and paper piecing made it easier to put down and pick-up as needed while I worked with my mom. Besides the scrap bin was finally so full I couldn't get the lid on any longer!
Now I'm hooked. I spent time Saturday piecing, sewing, cutting, and ironing. I just love busywork. There's something about it that makes me feel like I both have time for my (constant) inner dialog and that I'm accomplishing something. I'd have gotten more completed, but I ran out of paper arcs. Bummer.
So do you think I spent the time I had after I ran out of paper arcs to get the laundry done this weekend?
