It Has Been Slow Going but I Remain Thankful!

Four years ago when I decided to jump off the faith cliff to start my own business I had no idea that it would developed as quickly as it has done. Most weeks are 6 days weeks working at least anywhere between 8 to 12 hours daily.  Lately, I hardly can take a breather to sew a bit. A couple of days per week I can squeeze in 20 minutes or so. I have hired a young woman (wonderful and sweet) to come assist me with some of the tasks when deadlines converge at the same time. What a huge blessing she has been! My husband has pitched in more with cooking the meals or takes me out for dinner. Bless Him!!

I purchased a sewing machine for my step-son's mom hoping she would step up to the plate and repair her son's clothes that he rips up and take it off my overwhelming schedule. Not only that I really believed she would enjoy it as she has spoken of sewing in years past. Being it has a computer doesn't make it whole lot different than the old time sewing machines as they basically operate the same. There are more bells and whistles which does take time to learn. Sewing machines though are basic when it comes to sewing straight lines or repairing clothes.

When I purchased mine I taught myself how to utilize different functions as I went along. I am sure there is more that I can learn about my current sewing machine. Funny, I have a needle down, needle up feature that I didn't know I had for years. Oh my how I love this, especially when free motion quilting or chain stitching!

So as I show you my current progress it isn't much but at least I have been able to squeeze in some sewing.  I had planned on setting it on point but have changed my mind. The reason being that I would be cutting into these blocks that take quite a bit of time to piece together. So without further ado I am going to work on this quilt without feeling guilty of not repairing another torn coat instead! It is Saturday evening and I am tired and in desperate need of quilting therapy.

I am hooking up with Quilting is More Fun Than Housework. She is hosting Oh! Scrap! Check it out to see all the other scrappy quilts.

Thank you for visiting and wishing you a great sewing or quilting day!
