That phrase has been going over and over in my head for the last week or so.
I finished the secret piece of work and because of number of you are impatient and maybe even
nosey curious so I’ll show you a sneak peek:
I completed another secret project for someone else and then I was stuck. I want to get another quilt started, I need to get making things for Christmas fairs and presents, I need to get ready for the workshops I’m teaching later this month. But still no inspiration came.
A couple of weeks ago Johanna wrote that she had a load of scraps she wanted to get rid of just for the cost of the postage, so I said yes, and not long afterwards a large shoe box arrived stuffed full with a lot of lovely scraps:
Bethan and I spent a few hours sorting through them and putting them into the right colour box.
Last night I started pulling out pieces and cutting them into 1.5? x 5.5? strips ready for a strip quilt, inspired by Rita’s one here and Cindy’s (in fact Cindy and I did some fabric scrap swapping with quite funny results!). I almost have all the strips cut just from scraps in my boxes.
So at least I am now doing something rather than dwelling on the fact that I’m doing nothing. Oh and I also made an infinity scarf for my wonderful husband:
I used the same Riley Blake flannels that I used in the one I made for Leah, I made it slightly longer but not much. I’m struggling to find any masculine flannel or voile which would be suitable for this sort of project for a man, I’m looking to find something that isn’t novelty – any suggestions gratefully received, especially as someone is trying to wangle another trip to the US and I could make sure it includes fabric shopping.
Tobit was quite pleased with the finished project and despite it being a sunny afternoon in September he offered to model it for me!
So at least someone is ready for the cooler weather!
My fingers are definitely crossed for a productive week.
