Soft and serene sewing

Life handed me a hacker this morning.
DIStressing!!!
(sorry if you received one of the
unwanted emails!)
 
I needed some
DE-stressing.

I opened a scrap drawer.
Soft.
Serene.
Soothing. COLOR.
JUST what I needed.

This is where little scraps end up
when I'm too lazy to file them
any other way!
;/
They're KIND of by color....
 

I pulled out some of the LIGHT pieces.
 
Kind of like a dump and sew quilt.
This one is more of a DIG and sew quilt!
 

I made blocks.
DE-STRESSING the whole time!
 
I lined the blocks up into columns.
The columns are ALL different WIDTHS.
 

I sewed the columns together.
Wasn't SURE how much
DE-STRESSING
I needed!!!
 
Thought I might need a QUEEN sized DE-stress session.

Turns out....
I only needed a 48"x54"
DE-stress session.
 
Smaller than a twin.
Bigger than a Baby.
 
Hmmmm....
All in all I'd say....
Destress sewing DID the trick!

  7. I figured out right away that it was hacked. Don't you hate that?

    It's beautiful and looks like a low volume quilt.
