I finally got to do some sewing today. I have been trying all week, but between homeschooling and the kids activities there hasn't been much time to dig it all out. Thankfully, today was a stormy day which means we stay home! I did Square #9 and Square #1 from Crazy Mom Quilts. I decided to stay with the same colors for all the squares. We'll see how that goes. I had great fun! My back does not like it when I sew. But each time I find tricks to help.
Today I put my cutting mat on the kitchen counter. That way I didn't have to bend as much. Next time I will try putting my ironing board beside my sewing machine. I get up and down and up and down to sew seams and pin. If I can stay seated to iron that may help too. Somehow I'll get it figured out! ;)
Tomorrow I am promising myself to work on the borders of the T2CHK Swap Quilt. Yes, I am that type of person who has several projects at once...it keeps life interesting!
Here are my blocks:
First is #9 and then #1:
