I’ve fallen head over heels in love with the Friendship Star block.
It’s just so pretty!
Plus the name of it is just simply sweet and deeply symbolic.
I love this block so much that I’ve decided that my next video tutorial will be how to construct this block!
*insert party-whistle sounds*
In an ideal world, I would’ve already had this video underway.
However, life isn’t that fair.
Struggling under a weight of university work, travelling for an hour and a half to and from university and just basically living, I haven’t even had time to properly wash my hair let alone bring my sewing machine back to life.
I freely admit that I’m torn between using my time to do uni work and to sew/film.
My quilting hobby/practice is my life. It’s what I live and breathe for. It’s where I’m most happy. Most safe. Most creative. And, most importantly, 100% free!
So yeah, I’m struggling to put something else other than that first in my life.
The current invisible brick wall that separates me from my practice is a heavy one and I’m losing the spark that helps me keep creative and on my toes…
That just got deep really quickly!
And yet, I feel that I really needed to say it; to get it out of my head and into the void.
I feel ever so lighter…
So for now, six little Friendship Star blocks cling forlorn on my wall as I enter in and out of my Sewing Room.
‘I will get to you, I promise’, I say to myself every time I wistfully look up at them…
And perhaps, someday, I will.
Happy Sewing Friends! xx
