Carving out time to sew is always tough for me. I tend to feel guilty that I’m not doing things around the house like laundry, leaves, listening and more. At times I really feel like I should be in the Michael Keaton movie Multiplicity with the clones giving me a hand…

But that is all about to change!

As of this moment, I’m taking a new position on the chore of cooking and it’s going to help me do two things at once. Meet my new favorite appliance… the crock pot.

Dust the crock pot off and let's set it for simmer & sew time. Let the selfish sewing begin! The Sewing Loft.

This baby is giving me more time to do the things I love, like sewing! After tossing everything together and flipping the switch, I can head to the machine and get to work with out a care in the world.

If you have been following me on Instagram, you know that my September scrap buster has taken much longer than expected.

My goal; to finally finish piecing this monster scrap buster together.

To help speed things along, after piecing together 100 scrappy triangles Missy S and I decided to add a few larger pieces. This really kicked things into high gear!

We kept with the triangle theme and made the most of the points. In the end, she loves how it turned out and that makes me happy!

Now, I just need to pick up some Cuddle fabric for the back and we are in business. Fingers crossed, I can finish this baby up on my next Simmer & Sew day.

Once my scrappy triangle quilt top was complete, I just tossed together a salad, boiled a bag of rice and set the table. It was really simple and stress free!

    Awesome quilt! I love my crock pot!

  2. I just bought the same crock pot. So we are trying out new recipes. I just finished making a layette for my new granddaughter! I covered all the cushions (3) on a rocker, sewed burp clothes, swaddling cloth, quilts and nursing cover for my daughter. I am definitely ready for something new. I like your triangles.
