SOMETIMES YOU JUST NEED TO SEW!!!
A slump or lack of inspiration??? Maybe feeling paralyzed by my so called "stash. Is it because my room is a mess and I don't like to work in clutter (yet, I'm not inspired to clean it either - LOL) Doesn't matter, I simply have not been sewing!!! I had a long talk with myself and decided that it was time to find a project that would be quick and easy and make friends with my sewing machine again - it's been missing me! LOL And, so I sewed this week - WOOHOO! The floral project - "Turning Twenty-Again" is done with 12 floral fat quarters. Quick, easy and done. And the pastel quilt is a twin size (it's folded in half) Yellow Brick Road quilt. I purchased the fat quarter bundle of those plaid pastel fat quarters over 7 years ago and have been hoarding them for "the" quilt. I found them on Wednesday and decided that they would be a great Yellow Brick Road and I love it. I even had border and backing fabric in the drawer with the bundle. Another quick and easy project - call them DONE!!!!! OK, so they're not quilted - technicality :-)
Now, it's time to search for a new project. Am I ready for something with more grit and substance (triangles, etc) or should I find another quick and easy? More questions - sigh!!!!!!
On a different note. My daughter, Kristie and I had a girl's night out on Thursday and we went to see the premiere of "The Devil Wears Prada". We laughed and laughed and had a wonderful time. On the way home we did "dashboard dining" - had Chick Fil A - yum! Thank you, Kristie!
