Sidetracked..................focus, focus...........

I spent some time trying to clean off the cutting table in my studio.  The scrap piles, little leftovers from recent cutting days, are calling me to play.  I resisted and finished the binding on the small zig zag batik wallhanging instead.

Today is our church sewing group again and we will finish another bunch of pillowcases.  I'll spend the morning cutting a few more fabrics and then leave shortly after lunch for church.  Maybe tonight I can sew some more of the wonky seamed blocks for the new quilt I started.

Sometimes cleaning takes precedence. I know when I straighten up, I feel much better and am more productive.

Focus schmocus . . . I know it is necessary, but scraps are so much fun! Hope you find a way to fit both into your day.

Scraps stand no chance of being overlooked with your watchful eye, Wanda! Do you keep a back-up sewing machine? I cannot imagine what might happen if you were left sewing-less!!!!! You inspire me. I went back to the Bento flannel.

It would be almost impossible to resist that enticing lot of piles of scraps.

These lovely cuts of fabrics would be hard to resist. Sounds like you'll have some well-deserved play time soon.
