Stolen Moments

Sometimes I feel like the only time I have to stitch or even just sneak into my sewing room for a little while is a stolen moment. Maybe it’s an hour or two when my little MJ is sleeping (his naps seem to be all but disappearing these days) or a lucky afternoon that I can spend with the girls from the Houston MQG stitching like a crazy woman. I want to savor these moments and enjoy them, but usually they feel pretty frantic or crazy. I also find it hard to be inspired to work on something when I only have an hour or so to work on it. I prefer long blocks of time so I can think and plan and play.

Well, I guess I just have to accept that, at least for now, my sewing moments are going to be “stolen” so I’ll have to readjust how I function in my sewing space. I’ll have to plan to complete projects in phases and maybe just go in the sewing room and play for 30 minutes at a time. Small projects are going to be my focus.

That’s why my cubicle at work is “quilted” with mini quilts. They are FAST to create and yet give me a beautiful finished product!

That’s all for this stolen moment!

Happy Stitches,

Anna
