Monday was also my eldest son's first day at a new school. Poor kid was sent off by a wonderful neighbor instead of his mom. Praise God for good neighbors! He did fine though and is liking his new school.
Tuesday I resolved to try to take better care of myself and try to reduce my stress levels. I started off with some walking. Having the kids all in school has helped too.
Then I did some selfish sewing, or as I call it, sanity stitching. No rules, no plans, just some pretty fabric and a nice thread combination.
I played around with my camera settings while I stitched, and ended up with another time-lapse video to share. It's very fast. Too fast, but it was still fun. BTW, you can slow the video play yourself, by clicking the gear icon towards the bottom right corner. It may affect the quality though.
I guess it's fitting that a health issue made me get back to more free motion just for the heck of it. I started quilting in earnest while my hubby was going through cancer treatments. Quilting keeps me sane and it's cheaper than therapy (not the mention the ER).
By the way, Craftsy is having a big sale this weekend on their kits and supplies! Since Black Friday sales aren't all that handy for those of us who like to make presents for the holidays, they're calling it their Black Friday for Makers. Check it out through my instructor's affiliate link and if you buy something, it'll help support my work here.
That includes Craftsy's new line of fabric, Boundless. I've been playing around with a few fat quarter stacks of this fabric and it's pretty nice, affordable too. I hope to show you some of it soon.
