Do you remember that I complained about having lost my sewing mojo after the holidays? I tried re-organizing my room and even installed a new and improved design board. That helped a little bit, but I was still lacking that feeling of utter content and love that I usually feel when the opportunity to quilt presents itself. My friend had jokingly suggested that maybe I needed to clean out my entire room, and that is exactly what I did earlier this week! My room had gotten completely out of hand. There were piles of stuff everywhere, and I didn’t have one horizontal space to work on.
It was BAD! So one sunny afternoon, I tuned into my favorite radio station ( it plays hits from the 70’s and 80’s~ yes, ABBA and the Bee Gees and Foreigner and Air Supply!) and folded fabric, and sorted scraps, and pulled out furniture, and found long-forgotten treasures, and even a few quilts that are so close to being done, I do not know why I never finished them!
It actually took me 2 days to finish the job properly, but it feels sooooo good, and I definitely have my mojo back now! YAHOO!
And remember those forgotten projects? Some of them I think I will make into pet beds and bring to a local shelter, but others I deemed cute enough to warrant a finish, like this happy Spring-y one:
I gave it a quick, wavy machine quilt, and then decided to BIG stitch quilt a scallop pattern in the border. I really like how it turned out and I LOVE how fast big stitches go! Now I just need to bind this baby and it’s ready to decorate a little table for Spring and Easter!
Here is another table runner I found….the fabrics and colors are a bit more crazy, but I’m sure I can find a spot for it somewhere!
Hopefully I will get to this one today! I also found a (smallish) stack of quilts that need to be finished machine and hand quilting.Maybe if I leave them laying out, right there in the middle of my room, I will actually remember to do that!
I am off to work on some of those projects now! I have declared today a “quilt day”; What a great way to start the weekend, don’t you agree?!
Don’t forget that my giveaway closes tonight at midnight, so if you haven’t already entered, please do so now! I will announce the winner right here this weekend!Have a great day!
