I worked until about 6:30 today. Grabbed some dinner and headed out for a walk. I was dreading a night at home alone so I called a friend and walked 4.5 miles as we talked. It’s been a particularly stressful period at work, and the next two weeks promise to be equally busy.
I walked four miles last night too. I finished work much earlier last night and just couldn’t stand the thought of all those hours at home. It was a great walk and we all slept really well.
But tonight, after our walk I put on some music and spent about a half hour working on a jigsaw puzzle.
Then I decided to see if I could find some hand dyed indigo scraps my dyeing friend gave me a few years ago. I decided I wanted to preserve my larger pieces of indigo fabric, except for a few fussy cut pieces for the bag I’m thinking of.
I really had no idea where that little ziploc bag of indigo scraps was. I had to look in quite a few places to find it, but I was eventually successful. It was in a plastic bin of fabric scraps in the bottom of the pile of bins under my cutting table.
I selected a small pile of pieces and started making some crumb blocks. Here’s a bunch of these pieces lined up on my sewing table ready to rip!
And why do I fine these little piles of fabric trimmings so satisfying?
This next photo gives you an idea of what the indigo crumb blocks will look like with the indigo colored batik background fabric.
I got a I little stack of crumb blocks done tonight. I’m not quite sure how I’ll incorporate them into this bag.
Here’s the best thing about our 4.5 mile walk tonight.
