Moving On


Although these two mini scrap quilts, (which I just listed in my shop today) aren't proof positive,


as they are part of the small batch of quilts I stitched up several weeks ago, right before my creative dry spell hit, (so technically they don't count)...


I think I'm beginning to slowly move out of my creative funk and move on to brighter days.


Hoping to have some brand new work to share sometime next week. (That is if the house doesn't blow away... the wind here is blowing so hard I'm starting to feel like Dorothy in Kansas, and I swear I just saw a cow fly by.)

Have a great weekend everyone!

Oh, and I just sent you an email saying I had not seen any news here. I should have checked before. Anyway, scraps or not scraps, these quilts are beautiful. They count!

Flying cows are not good! Put rocks in your pockets when you go outside to anchor yourself down. As always, lovely work.

I'm so inspired by all the quilts I've seen on your blog. I'm glad your dry spell is ending ~ I've missed your posts.
Both these quilts are wonderful!
Thanks so much for sharing.

As usual you are an inspiration even if you feel you are in a funk. I do love the mini scrap quilts.

I do think that winter has something to do with creative funks. Even though I am spending more time in my studio I am not producing anything. I even resorted to ironing my husbands dress shirts the other day to avoid the sewing machine. :-) Have a great weekend.

oh dear... wind makes my kids really act funny...

love the quilt!

I just did a class with Kaffe Fassett and Brandon Mably last week. I too was feeling rather uninspired prior to going. Although I learned only a little, being surrounded by other makers, sharing my same passion texiles did the trick! Maybe you need to get out of that wind and find some sun and some other sewers. Your work still look gorgeous to me.

Love the colors on these, very wintery with that little hint of warmth coming soon.

Hey Harriet said...

You saw a cow flying by? Wow you have all the luck! I would really like to see a photo though :)

Love these quilts!

The rust and the violet together in this piece are sumptuous! Glad to hear you're gaining some momentum!
