When to Sew...When to Sew?

Now that my lovely maternity leave is merely a hazy dream, I am back to work with a vengeance. On one hand it is great feeling productive, and working on "important" things. On the other hand, I miss sewing! I've been squeezing in some hand sewing at night, and a few hours on the weekends but I miss my daily sewing time. There is just something meditative about the hum of the machine.

I did squeeze some time in over the 4th of July to make these blocks for "Sew Fun" for Jess.  She asked for blocks inspired by Denyse Schmidt's Drunk Love design.  She sent some beautiful Amy Butler prints.  They just make me think of spring. 

When do you find time to sew?

  1. It's so hard in the summer! My son will be going back to school in September and the nights will be longer and cooler. I do most of my sewing in the fall and winter. Alas, the humidity level is rising again and that greatly cuts into my sewing enjoyment!
