I sit here, at one in the morning, contemplating this quilting world.
I’ve been unable to create anything with a sewing machine for about a whole 10 days. And when you WANT to be creating but are forced to take a break (as I am while I recover from surgery) it creates a bit of angst. I’m collecting inspiration like mad for this project and that on pinterest. Sorry if you follow me there and find my inundation of pinned items obnoxious. Pinterest allows me to feel creative even when I can’t actually create. I’m letting my mind just take in mutiple types of inspiration and creating new boards. Oh and by the way, I have ONE board called quilting and sewing. I really need to organize that because that is ridiculous…there are probably 100 separate boards within that. lol
I am trying out other methods of creating, like coloring in fabulous coloring books such as Jenean Morrison’s Flower Designs. Coloring is definitely not just for kids!! (Although I did finally give in and let my four year old color in it with me. But I told her it is Mama’s coloring book)
I’m getting ready for a blog hop in January I think to promote a fabric line and I’m really excited because I’ve decided to tackle a full legit dress pattern for myself. The Collete Crepe pattern. I’ve heard great things about the pattern and it is definitely my style of dress. So I’m hoping that this might be the first of multiple times I make it. (there is no logical reason that the picture should be turned and as it is now 1:30 am you’ll just have to bear with me and tilt your head…I’ll get a better shot when I actually start making it)
