I’m stuck in a very uncreative rut. I can’t seem to motivate myself to get anything going. I think all the creativity of the past winter-spring has lead me to wanting to lay around and do nothing. And I don’t like it. Some of it has to do with other things in life keeping me busy (like quilting for clients…I’m still officially “closed” for business if you’re wondering). Sewing Summit is coming up next month (for those of your going, are you so excited?!). I am trying to get myself all ready for that. I had hoped to have a new pattern released after that weekend. But that means I have to actually gather fabric to make the full sized quilt. Right now that seems like a lot of work. I have been working on some hand applique here and there for a friends very, very belated wedding gift (they just celebrated their 2nd anniversary). And working with Jill of Tabslot on a very cool template for my next quilt. I also assembled a cute IKEA “kitchen” cart to hold all of my other crafts in (drawing, watercolor, journaling)…but I haven’t actually got anything in there. The idea is to make it easier to craft because it can all be rolled easily where ever I want (bedroom desk, kitchen table, craftroom). Send me some creative vibes, will ya? I could really use them.
I have a question for you, this very cool “next” quilt I’m going to release, what fabric line should I make it from? I know that you have no idea what it looks like, but I’d love to know some lines of fabric you’re looking to see quilts made from. It will help me narrow it down. I’m kind of thinking along the lines of Anna Maria’s new line… I’ll tell you this, the quilt has a very “ornamental” kind of feel to it… Interpret that as you will. *insert grin here*
