The cooler weather has made the sewing studio much more comfortable in the afternoons. I've actually been able to sew a couple of days without running the ceiling fan, which was pretty much in constant motion this summer. I've noticed not being as tired when I get home. For some reason the heat of summer just takes it out of you, even if your only exposure is the walk from the office to your car after work. At any rate, last week was a pretty good one in terms of finding at least 15 minutes to sew most nights.
The only day I didn't sew was Thursday. Drama Teen's school celebrated it's 100 year anniversary last week. The school hosted a big anniversary dinner on Thursday. So we all prettied up and attended.
Progress has been more plentiful in the last few weeks. I think in part because I've started working on more than one project at a time. I guess my main focus this month is the Layer Cake Quilt Along project, which is the UFO for the month. The Sofa Quilt continues as a leaders and enders project. I've worked in sewing the binding for The Fat Quarter Stars project and getting the quilt trimmed and squared up so I can stitch on the binding. In there somewhere the Rainbow Challenge and Grandmother's Choice blocks have been cut out and sewn together.
Overall, fabric usage is up and more projects are moving along. Feels pretty good. But I've noticed this itch to start something new. I have a number of PIGS (projects in grocery sacks) that I've accumulated over the years and a couple of them are calling my name. Maybe I'll give in and start one of those before the month is out.
How goes it with your personal quilting/crafting efforts? Here's Mr. Linky if you are willing to share.
