As I am trying to organize my pictures from last year (trying to make a photo book, inspired by my post few weeks ago, inspired by SouleMama’s post, I’ve realized there are many projects and things I didn’t post last year.
I did take a long break from blogging last year (about six months) and it felt so good to not have to spend as much time in the computer. But I’ve realized there were lots of pictures in folders that I never looked at.
I’ve been saving all those old (vintage) sheets I’ve found in garage sales and thrift stores for years. I’ve thought about using them to make pajama pants (something like these), or maybe bags (envelopes or for grocery bags), or napkins, flags or buntings, hot pads, or pillows, bias tape, tunic or an apron, or curtains (in our bedroom we need something to cover our closet, which is of a funny shape, and the extra heavy door fell down almost 20 years ago) or any of the exciting projects you can find on Pinterest.
I decided to start with a quilt. Like a summer-ish quilt.
I also made one for my mom, that I didn’t take a picture of. They turned out pretty cute I think.
I don’t want to forget those months of no posts, in the hopes that somehow this online journaling, will be part of “a thing” . Not sure what exactly that thing would be but I am hoping it will turn into something so my family can remember these growing and learning years.
I don’t know if there is a correlation between me not blogging all those months and all the projects I did and finished. Maybe.
