At the end of December/beginning of January I felt a little overloaded with obligations. We had a fun but busy holiday season. Then…we decided to finish our basement…and so every item from the basement moved into my living space.
I was also involved in a lot of different side projects plus our entire family got the flu, our dog died and…well….things got a little bit hectic.
My schedule was full. My living space was full. My mind was full.
One Friday night my kids wanted to have a movie marathon while my husband worked in the basement and I agreed that would be a great idea. However, instead of joining in the marathon or learning how to tile a bathroom I cleared out a corner of a bedroom and started to sew.
I had a few stray precut packs, a fold of white fabric and a new audio book downloaded onto my phone….and I just started sewing and listening.
Before I knew it I had an entire new quilt all sewn up….and I felt happy.
I just needed a little break…and a project for myself…just for fun.
I actually finished before my kids did and had time to grab some pizzas and finish the movie marathon with them. It was a good night.
The afternoon spent sewing followed by pizza and a movie with the kids was just what I needed to recharge my batteries and get back to work in the basement!
Forever this quilt pattern will be my “Just for Fun” quilt pattern.
If you want to check it out you can get it HERE.
Now go, have some fun & Happy Quilting!
I took this picture one day later that month when my husband skipped a lunch meeting and came to grab me to go get some giant sodas….and while we were out enjoying playing hooky we took pictures of the quilt in the snow:
Which was also fun.
