That is what I've been working on during this "unprecedented" time. I started mid-March and I worked on it a little everyday. These years were during what I call the "thick" of my parenting time. I am exhausted!! It was a busy, emotional, exciting, joyful, tumultuous time with deaths, graduations, teaching, enforcing, comforting, constant chauffeuring, and realizing how human I am, warts and all.
I had journals in spiral notebooks, steno pads, sheets printed from a matrix printer, and just loose pieces of paper. I also included letters in the mix. I knew if I didn't transpose all that confused mass of memories it would just get put in a box and forgotten.
The uninterrupted time I have had for the last 2 1/2 months was perfect for this kind of project.
|I used the scissors for a size reference.|
I need to go on to the next collection of papers but the binder I was using is full so I'll have to start another one. That's okay I've got 27 more years to fill it up.
I didn't get anything done on my Alice Jane Blue quilt this month unless you count unpicking this map
so I can replace it with a different map fabric. This green just didn't look good with the rest of the blocks.
Go check out the others that are participating in this sew along.
