After Work Sewing

I made this block one evening after work.


Can you relate to this: You're tired after a long day, but you still want to sew something. Create something. I guess that's how we crafters unwind. But because it's been a long day, you can't really tackle anything too complicated. And that's how little things like this block come to be.

It started simply with a little fussy cut piece of Baby Strawberry Shortcake fabric lying around the sewing table. A little bit of cutting, sewing and pressing later and tadaah!


Isn't she cute?

Too bad she's an orphan right now. I have no plans for her at the moment, she may end up as part of a quilt, or maybe something smaller like a cushion, who knows?

Hope everyone's having a happy week!
