The girls are finally getting old enough where I can get back to being crafty again! Yay!
This year I decided to do a Block of the Month (BOM). I am doing the Quilters Planner Block of the Month. I had the planner last year but I never had time to quilt with the baby growing in my belly. But this year, I am doing it. I have 3 out of the 4 months done! Yay!!
I also found the National Quilt Museum had a BOM that started in April so I tried my hand and that… and boom. I fell in love with English Paper Piecing (EPP). Here is the block I made. Pattern is from Mister Domestic. He has some fantastic Youtube videos that showed me exactly what to do when EPPing.
It then made me want to of course try hexies. So I am working on this table runner. I am about a week in, so I should have this done in what a couple months, lol.
I have found that hand sewing keeps me from unnecessary snacking, and less time playing pointless games on my iPad. My daughter wants to help me sew all the time, and I might find something for her to work on too. Is almost 4 too young to start? I have no clue.
I will continue to post my progress, and I will update you if quilting is helping get rid of the mom bod too. lol.
