Mom's visit is at an end. So we've been in a quiet funk mood wise. I did what I usually do when I am in that mood, I started sewing. I knew I couldn't make anything, so I just started playing with my scraps. I've been saving them more lately, those little pieces that seem too small to do anything with. I've done a couple of those wonky log cabin squares. Trying them ala Denyse Schmidt and not over thinking the colors or placement. This is called string quilting. You do it on a foundation fabric that stays with the piece. It's kinda liberating. I tend to follow patterns so much. This was an exercise in letting go.
