Light and Dark

I pulled out an unfinished quilt today.
 
 
This....
Is what I really SHOULD be doing.
I should get these quilt tops
sandwiched and quilted!!!
It was on my LIST to do this week!

But...
Today...I need the peace and calm
of LIGHT and DARK.
 
Pick up a light.
Pick up a dark.
Sew.
Repeat.
 
There is a serenity in quilting I love.

work in progress wednesday.

  1. I, too, am seeking some serenity through thread, fabric, and rotary cutting. Peace out.

  3. Love your tumblers. Sometimes you just have to put the list aside and work on a calming project. Hugs

  6. I do appreciate the calm and bliss that comes from sewing fabric together. I would not be called a patient person but when it comes to quilting I find resources I did not know I had.

  7. I don't blame you for skipping the basting to piece instead. Your tumblers look great.

  9. Absolutely. Some days it takes sewing machine work and little bits of fabric just to get through the day.:)

  10. I sure get that......meditation at the sewing machine is how I like to think of it. I got some in yesterday and it felt terrific,
    I'm gonna try and get to it tonight too.

    Love the tumblers Beth, nicely done.
    Happy Sewing

  12. The tumbler quilt looks great. I know what you mean about the serenity of (semi) mindless piecing.
