You read the title correctly. Both of my machines are currently sitting in Indy and I’m in San Francisco. They are not in the shop or broken. I contemplated bringing them for a couple of days. Ultimately, I decided to leave them behind. Here are my three reasons why.
1. I have a list to do a mile long
Did you know I have been working on two tutorials to share? They have been months in the making. Pictures are done and almost edited. I have just been putting off sitting down and writing out the instructions. So when the toddler wakes up at 5am PST, I have some time to cross these off my to do list. Plus I work best early in the morning.
2. Getting my inspiration back
This morning we went for a run around the Bay. It was gorgeous and challenging at the same time. While my to do list may be long, sometimes I just need to refresh and get a different perspective. On the way back from the run I saw a painting on a building that really struck me.
How awesome would this look as a quilt? Knowing that my scrap trash bag is full of solids I think I can make this happen.
3. I wanted to try something different
Fear not, I did bring some stuff to sew with. Last minute before leaving I did throw in a charm pack, needle, thread and scissors to my bag. Maybe I will do some hand sewing, maybe I won’t. On the run this morning I had an idea to create a Valentine’s day project with what I brought. Rarely do I create holiday specific items and this project will cost me almost zero dollars.
Well I’m off to go explore and spend time with the family.
