Inspiring Quilters, Stitch by Stitch
I'm in a quilting slump, I don't want to finish this double wedding ring that I'd get paid for if I finished it, lol. I don't want to work on the awesome looking dragon/hurricane themed t shirt quilt that's at least half done and all laid out really, lol. I don't want to finish quilting the scrap quilt for my niece.. I actually don't want anything to do with my sewing room right now.. I went down there Monday for a bit, but I just couldn't get into it. I hate times like this.. what do the rest of you do when you're in a quilting slump?
I started spring cleaning.. of course with CFS, I don't get a lot done real quick, lol. It's kind of - scrub and wash and straighten for 15 minutes, then rest for an hour, then do another 15 minutes, rest for an hour, etc. I almost have my kitchen done, and if you saw the size of my kitchen and realized I'd been working on it for nearly two whole days, you'd truly think I was the laziest person, EVER. I wanted to have a garage sale tomorrow, but it's forecasting rain, so maybe I'll finish up the kitchen.
Today I went shopping, went by Michael's and looked at the options for making a quilt block clock like Gladys's.. I love hers.. So I originally went looking for either a square canvas or styrofoam to put the fabric on but then I saw the wood pieces and the lightbulb went off..I have TONS of scrapbooking papers..decoupage anyone?? I may go with that idea as I have some really amazing papers and the decoupage would really hold up well, plus I could make super intricate designs. Then I went to the grocery store.. be still my heart, my favorite fruits finally hit the produce aisle, pink lady apples, pluot plums and beautiful ripe nectarines, oh my. So, now I think I'll sit on my butt, look at other peoples quilts and eat some fruit.
