I am a bad sleeper. I can stay the half night awake and just thinking…about everything that come into my mind.
Yesterday I decided not to stay in bed but sit down to my table and have been sewing for a while on my sewing machine until my Husband came out and asked me to do something that was less noisy. All right, I turned the computer on and started looking for some hand piecing ideas. I found a lot of inspiring posts about how relaxing and quiet hand piecing can be.
Then I was spending more than an hour with arranging my 2 1/2″ squares for I decided to hand piece a postage stamp quilt. It would be a quiet and relaxing activity during my sleepless nights 🙂
And today…I read a post on one of my favourite blogs WeddingDressBlue, that there will be a free block of the month that starts in october.
This is Sew Sweet Simplicity by Jacquelynne Steves and her pattern caught my eyes for the first sight. The light bulb switched on above my head and I knew in that very moment that it will be the perfect chance and pattern for me to try out hand piecing. I decided to sew it all by hand.
This is the first BOM pattern I really like and found just in time to take part in. Thanks for Deanna. And Jacquelynne who created this wonderful pattern with a lot of work and enthusiasm.
I’m looking forward to starting my first BOM. 🙂
