Lazy Sewing Days

I’ve begun piecing together the quilt top of the I Spy quilt I’ve been planning to make for Elijah. I’ve decided that this particular project will be my in-between-projects project for this year; something I work on when I don’t have anything else to do. Ultimately, I’d like to have it finished in time for Christmas 2010 and that date seems like a reasonable goal now, but ask me again in May and I may be singing a different song. There is something very therapeutic about pressing, pinning, and sewing little, brightly colored and patterned fabric squares together. The lack of a pressing deadline, I’m sure, also contributes to the therapeutic quality of the activity and I’ve found myself relaxed and content with the process.
