Stay inside. Don’t go out. Missing friends. Craving food at my favorite restaurant. Fabric and quilt shops closed..the list goes on.
I don’t know about you, but this is a lot to take in…and maybe, like me, you’re feeling a bit crabby.
Misery loves company, so let’s be crabby together. Beginning May 1st, we’ll be having a quilt-along using the Crab Quilt pattern (available here).
Depending on your preferred social media, there are a few options for you:
- On Facebook? Great! I have a brand new group for us to add our work and share. You can join the here; I’d love to have you join me…as long as, you know, you stay crabby.
- On Instagram? Me, too! Use the hashtag #crabquilt so we can see your work. I love sharing your work, too, so keep an eye out for my stories as you might find yourself there!
Want to join me? Here are the rules:
- There are no rules, because rules make me crabby.
- There are no weekly deadlines, because deadlines make me crabby.
- There’s no set schedule saying “you have to make ten crabs every hour” or anything like that, because schedules make me crabby.
- There are no set colors you need to follow, because fabric shops and quilt shops are closed, which makes us *all* crabby.
- There are no sponsors or prizes, because that would be decidedly uncrabby.
We’ll be sewing throughout the next two months until we’re feeling less crabby…or until we run out of scraps and the fabric stores open back up. Officially, we’ll be wrapping up at the end of June, but what you do between now and then is up to you and your crabby self.
Sound good? I look forward to having you join me on May 1st for this officially crabby quilt-along. Don’t forget to join our Facebook page to share your images, as well as introduce yourself the first week of May – with your crabbiest expression, of course.
DISCLOSURE: this is a fun, tongue-in-cheek event and in no way is intended to minimize or make light of the situation we are all in. My continued prayers go to everyone – truly, globally – for peace and health during this time. I’m thankful to continue to sew and donate masks to multiple nursing homes and hospitals, and continue to offer some in my shop for individuals who are interested in purchasing a homemade mask, while (at the same time) supporting a small business. If there’s anything you need, please don’t hesitate to ask.
