Proof I started sewing it.......

Here is proof I started sewing the quilt together but I just couldn't stick with it.  Maybe I'll get it done today, maybe not.






When my friends were over on Friday I pulled out some stacks of fabric looking for one particular one.  So....I spent time petting this stack instead of sewing the rows of the log cabin.

Petting fabric is a necessary part of our process. I fully understand! :)

Petting fabric is one of the benefits of working with textiles. We need to do it often!

HollyM said...

Well, petting is very comforting! I'm sure it will lead to something!

Mary said...

...and my word for petting fabric is therapeutic...good thing spell checker took care of me there. Good luck making progress on your log cabin quilt.

What a gorgeous stack!! Petting is ok, but I am afraid I would drool with fabrics like that which is not good for the fabric.

Nobody is judging you here, Wanda. We are all "guilty" of the same activity.

Sometimes... the break is the creative part!

Some days are just like that. At least I don't feel like I am the only one who doesn't "fall in a hole" when I should be working. ha ha

I would be petting that stack of lovely fabric too. It felt good I am sure.

I'm with the lady who said Drool! I have to keep my Kaffe Fasset fabric in a box out of sight or I would never get anything done.

Gee - I wonder why petting fabric won over stitching blocks together . . . NEVER happens at my house! (HA HA HA)

I stopped sewing one day this last week and reorganized my lawyers bookcase full of fabric-just so I could refold and stack in color wheel order-a lot of petting was involved-maybe that is why my one cat loves the sewing room.

But you took time to give us a post for today. And for me most Saturdays are very difficult to do any sewing. It is the weekend, time to take some time to do what you feeling like doing.

And who can blame you? Petting that beautiful, vibrant fabric seems like a wonderful way to spend some time.

Sheila said...

Since I love to pet beautiful fabric, too ... I won't judge :D

I am a firm believer that fabric needs to be petted from time to time! Hope you found what you were looking for too! LOL

Marie said...

I saw a comic the other day that said if you pet fabric you are a quilter - guess you are a quilter! :)

Who could resist petting that stack of fabric?? The possibilities look endless -- but those fabrics could turn into an amazing Orange Peel or Dresden Plate or Joseph's Coat quilt! Yummy! And so lovely and bright and colourful during the grey days of winter!

I had to laugh, because it is so true. Sometimes you just need to take a break and pet the fabric.

I too would be petting that sumptuous collection of fabrics!

It is good to just pet the fabric from time to time!
