|Christine hard at play|
|Me appearing not-tense on the beach in Mexico|
Sewing and knitting make me tense. I love playing with all the pretty colors, designs, soft textures, and eye-catching patterns, but when it comes to physically DOING it, my fingers cramp, my eyes cross, and my shoulders stiffen. These crafts are also time-consuming, indoor activities which are really only appealing when the weather's truly snotty. Therefore, the crafting months tend to be November (before ski season) and maybe March & April (before gardening season).

The log cabin quilt is going to be a beautiful thing when it's done. I love the fact that every block is different and I really get to play with the colors in it. I sew it a strip at a time, so there's no cutting of pieces, or pinning, or ironing - and I'm even quilting as I go! Don't ask me how I'm going to assemble it yet; I'll work that out once I get all the blocks sewn.
