The end of last year and the beginning of this year have left me disorganized and uninspired. I think I'm just a little burned out and tired. I have too much clutter in my sewing room and it appears my brain is the same way. Slowly I will work myself out of these blues.
I've been finishing up some of my crazy scrap projects including some "fabric" that I've been making out of small scraps. Its not a new technique by any means but kinda fun. You fuse your scrap piece onto a thin interfacing, pin on longarm and drizzle with saved threads from many projects, throw on some pretty yarns or fibers, cover with tulle and quilt away until you run out of thread or get tired of the process.
When done you can use as regular fabric but I like to make very unique journal covers with it, I think that applique would be a nice idea and I've also made some small purses.
The last little purse was made from truly tiny snippets that some sassy quilting buddies gave me as a joke. They know I have a hard time throwing out scraps so they gave me a baggy of snippets from a guild project. I made them into this small purse with some rick rack thrown in for good measure.
I did a few things but I'm not satisfied with my day I guess. The fat quarter slide did get pieced together and I need to decide about borders, its 85" without borders so it will be a large quilt. I'm jealous that everyone else has so many goals and their duck all in a row so to speak, I'm just going to flounder for a couple days and get over it!
