I took off the day yesterday. I just needed some me-time . . . I tried very hard to just recharge my energy levels and maybe a little of my sanity. I had such fun. I started the day early and went to a local fabric shop I found that sells the "off-cuts" from the rolls of material (you know, the last little bit (and sometimes not so little) on the rolls of material that no-one will buy). They sell it by weight - I got a huge bag for a small amount out of my wallet. :) Always a good thing!
I got out my sewing machine and sewed together my first quilt-pieces. I think it is the first time I used my sewing machine - fun, fun, fun! I know the sewing is not totally straight but I am going to incorporate it somehow into my first quilt. I am terribly soppy about such things and just have to keep it. I will always remember the feeling when I look at it. Here is a picture of the pieces.
