Thank goodness for 15 minutes!


I'd been painting the kitchen ALL weekend, which means I hadn't sewn an inch! You know that antsy feeling when you haven't sat at the sewing machine in a while? Well, I had it, and badly, tonight. I was about to get pretty darn grumpy when I remembered that I could make a couple of 15 minute blocks. I literally ran, in my painting clothes, to the machine and started sewing red scraps. Ah! Just two blocks later, I'm feeling much happier. Thank you V!

So far, I've received Mary's blocks and her amazing gift of red fabric. And Helen's scraps are a great addition. I think it's shaping up quite nicely. Don't you?
