Selfish Sewing Week

Did you know about this?

September was National Sewing Month & imagine gnats & Made with Moxie declared the 4th week of the month as "Selfish Sewing Week".

I would have *loved* to have played along! Not that there isn't always a generous serving of selfishness in all my sewing, but I have been doing quite a bit of sewing for others recently & many, many projects that are mostly just for my own entertainment have been calling to me.

But last week wasn't a good one! I had a crummy cold, work & two (yes, TWO!) jury duties -- county & city (not on a jury either time, but still).


So I'm going to celebrate this week -- heck, I might even celebrate for the rest of the year -- except for the t-shirt quilt for my MIL, the late milestone birthday quilt for a friend, my up-coming contributions for Guild baby & wedding quilts, a small sewn gift for another friend's birthday & my on-going stash bust of lap & baby quilts for donation. ;-)

selfish sewing!

p.s. I L!O!V!E! the buttons they created, but can't get them to work, so I did a mock-up version.

Sounds like you've got a big list of sewing to get done. I hope you get a bit of selfish sewing done too, or at least have some martinis while you work through the list. I think it's brilliant you did a proper photo of the button. Lol!!

Geez, I hope you can squeeze in lots of "selfish" sewing time this year, AND that you get plenty of good karma from all your donation quilts. Your zigzag quilt is looking really great! Now I know how I want to quilt mine.

A cold, work, and double jury duty!!! You deserve some selfish sewing time!

Ha you are a martini vino tinto for you? Great pix. Rachel is right. This is all brilliant. You are making me smile.
