Well good morning to you and I don't know what happened to me last week ... I disappeared!! I was so excited to give my stash report and then nothing! Apparently I needed to take a break from all that hot sewing I did the week before! I usually see with friends at least once a week. So I did get that time in, working steadily on my APQ Quiltalong.
Vary opening up seams, squaring up the small blocks, and then stitching them into a nine patch. My goal ... 10 nine patches a day. So close to finishing!
During my break last week, I spent a lot of time on my new fun hobby planning and journaling. I used to scrapbook a lot, even made cards, and really enjoyed it. I found a lot of inspiration on Instagram, and I have gone in head first! I bought a new planner, and am really trying to get myself organized. Part of the great fun is decorating your planner ... Some go crazy with stickers, etc. Mine is pretty simple ...
On Instagram there is an entire planning and scrapbooking community ... They love their art the way we love quilting! I joined in on a list a day challenge. Every day we have a prompt and we journal a page for that day. It has been so much fun!
This is just one of my days ... The prompt was best meals I ever ate. Mine was really fun to fill in the memories on that date. Some are really fun and some prompts require a little more seriousness or thought. I probably spend about a 1/2 hour towards the end of my day just filling a page ... It is really enjoyable and I am finding it quite relaxing. It doesn't come without downfalls though ... So much cute stuff to embellish with. I spent s little money last week shopping for goodies!
Ok ... Back to quilting! Have a good week my friends. Follow me on Instagram @quiltinginderthesun
