Force of strings

So far 2011 has not been treating me kindly so while I’m waiting for my recovering body to catch up with my never-resting brain, I’m force feeding my sewing machine with strings. I started this project a couple of years ago and put it aside for a rainy day, which happens to be now.
There’s something very relaxing about feeding string after string through the machine; making order out of chaos as the strings are transformed into blocks. I do love scraps!


  1. I keep the basket right next to my ironing board...odds and ends and and edges of wonderful fabrics ...I am thinking about a special bag of some sort...hummmm. Imagine and live in Peace, Mary Helen Fernandez Stewart

  2. I never thought machine piecing was relaxing, but I will take your approach...."order out of chaos". Yes!

  3. Meditative - that's how it looks. Be well - so sorry you're still not feeling up to par. Hopefully your package will arrive soon and a little shot of sugar free chocolate will bust your body back to rights!

  4. That will definitely keep you moving. Sorry you are not all better yet.
