mindless sewing


i was in a funny mood on saturday, i couldn't really settle to anything and i felt truly down in the dumps. i had a few hours that were my own, so i just sat and stitched in my funny mood...just grabbing whatever fabric i had to hand, which happen to be a little pile of neutrals ready washed for a print workshop. i stole little pieces of them & cut and stitched, cut again, stitched again and so on. not sure if it's going anywhere, but it was nice to prove to myself nice things can come out of foul moods.

Love the little flashes of colour. Were they your happy thoughts in a sea of gloom? :o)

Seems to me that you stitched yourself out of your funny mood which is sometimes the best thing to do.

The color bits are like blue sky peeking out of the clouds. Looks like the makings of a lovely pillow.

They look very interesting! Will be great to see what you turn them into! Scrappy blocks are perfect for mood lifting =D

Lovely and tranquil! Love that some of the neutrals have what looks like a wee bit of texture to them, it makes them look so comforting.

Beautiful! I have been working on a project with a similar feel.

Love the splashes of colour. How about doing hand stitching (like in your post: New Obcession) over them in the same flash of colour (red on the left, green on the right)?
