With a job having started up, I’m needing to find a new balance to find time for sewing. All day, every day isn’t possible anymore and boy do I miss it. I’m just going to have to get used to a slower pace of progress on things.

Just have to bind this and it’s all done!

And I’m popping these in the mail for the Spare Change Swap. Can’t wait to see what I get back!

    Good luck on your new job! I like the all day, every day type of quilting, too.

    I love that detail of quilting. It creates little roads all over for all those cars.
    I don’t know what all day, every day quilting is… but it must be nice. All well at your new job. And I wish a lot energy for afterwards crafting.

    I keep wondering too what fabrics will arrive for the spare change quilt. It’s very exciting!

    All day sewing sounds like heaven…

    You’re so fast anyway, I’m sure you will still be cranking out those quilts and not missing a beat. You’ve inspired me to order a darning foot for my machine and give machine quilting a whirl :-) Good luck with balancing everything out.
