    Can not get sewing lately -so I have been

    cleaning and sorting fabric. Everything that was less than 2 yds is now cut into 2.5 inch strips.That way I can make log cabin blocks when I get my mojo back.

    I liked seeing the strips stacked up and ready to be used in a project. It inspires me to stack my strips. By stacking them I will be getting ready to make a log cabin when the inspiration hits me---usually in the middle of the night when I have so many other projects going at the same time, and I am not particularly wanting to be in the design mode --- the stacked strips was just totally inspirational.....I plan to do this during times when I am stuck in a no-sewing mode, too, and yet I am wanting to be handling "color" and "patterns" and "textiles"..... this was a good post!!

    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    The important thing is you are still thinking of the quilting process and have your hands on the fabric. Time well spent!
