One Month of Self Isolating

Can you believe it’s been just over a month? Are you losing days and having to check your phone to see what day it really is? That’s me these days! 🤔

I had my goals for the week and fabrics pulled for the upcoming blog hop projects.

And then………🐿🐿🐿🐿🐿. Visitors arrived and my mind went wandering. Then I started sorting in my batik scrap bin for just the right sided scraps and remnants. Out came my Accuquilt Cutter and 9” Cube. I sorted my scraps and remnants and cut and cut and cut some more while talking on the phone with my daughter. Then I started piecing blocks while still talking with my daughter. I had my blocks half piecing while still talking with my daughter. 😱. Then I realized it was 7:10 pm and I hadn’t started dinner yet. Told my daughter I had to go and scrambled to get dinner on. Looked at DH and asked him why he hadn’t said anything when I lost track of time? His reply “you were having fun and smiling and I won’t starve to dead!”

So here’s a peek at the secret sewing I did today which is totally not my planned project:

And yes that’s more scraps on the cutting table. I will get them done!

Thanks for stopping by. Just had to show how badly I’m losing track of days and time. What a sweet pile of batik beauty to make my heart happy on a rainy BC day! 🤔 Carol

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. I’m impressed that you can cut and sew while talking on the phone – I’d lose track of what I was doing! And your husband gets a gold star – what a nice guy, letting you keep going because he sees you’re enjoying yourself. Love that! You know I’ve lost track of days 🙂 so at least the two of us are in good company!

    1. I think it’s the normal for most of us. We have become so used to having to be here on this day and there on that day that now we have no real concept of time since so many of us go nowhere! Be well and happy Lori


  2. Hi Carol,
    I’m curious to see what you’re making!!! But, of course, I know I have to wait!
    The other day, I was on the phone with my daughter & my husband was on the extension in another part of the house … of course, I had the phone on speaker and was merrily sewing away … at the end of the call, they both commented on how the sewing machine actually makes a lot of noise 🙂 sigh!!! Guess I’ll have to stick to ironing and cutting while on the phone! 🙂
    Happy Quilting! 🙂


    1. Hi Gail. Funny my daughter never mentioned my machine making noise but then I listened to her doing dishes and packing boxes and trying to find the remote her grandaughter hid. I’m really liking how this impromptu quilt is coming along. I love free quilts and yes, squirrels, too!


  3. Your husband is definitely a keeper! My husband would have felt the same way. He probably would have fixed dinner and made me come eat before going back to sew some more. =) Wonderful batiks!


    1. Thank you Susan. I think he’s pretty great. I had patterns in mind for the hop projects but then I found a bag of little batik scraps and the squirrel made me do it! I’m almost finished it. Just piecing the last border now 😉
