Fun in my fabric world....

A week of random-ness...

A random sort of week...last weekend's sewing left my head in a much better place to start the working week. It was great reading the comments and thinking how we all struggle with lots we have to do, and lots we want to do. It is very liberating to just let go of the pressure we put on ourselves.
I have had a lovely week! My colleagues have had some concerns though when they found me snapping pics on my way to work early Monday morning...
but this path was worthy of a pic...
and I adore this old sign.
I have caught up with friends, one I have known since I was eleven, and one that has broken her wing (naturally it is her dominant wrist), had TWO sewing nights out with lovely sewing friends...thanks ladies I did have fun! So it was a good week.
And here is the progress on my amitie BOM...it would have progressed much further, but I had a bad dose of "Sewer's Mush-brain" and kept sewing seams, then having to unpick them...a good sleep seemed to help!
Hope you have had a good week too!

I want this tile path. I'm book marking it and showing it to Mr. Creations. It would look amazing in my "retirement" home. I love old signs...I'm on the look out for one for my house. Have a wonderful time sewing just for fun.

There are some really cool fabrics in that block. That path should definitely be turned into a quilt. Funny how your colleagues don't get why you had to photograph the path, but your sewing buddies do.
