Feeling Inspired!

you would think that with these guys back at school - the smallest just starting preschool / kinder - i would have lots of time to do crafty things and have heaps to show you.

 i dont know what ive been doing! wandering around feeling a little bit lost without my 'trusty assistant'!  Feeling uninspired and unmotivated until i received this!

A parcel full of yummy fabric goodness from the lovely
 Miss BlueMountainDaisy !
Hee hee Rachael even sent ME a thankyou card!

THANKYOU!!! Rachael,
youve picked me up out of my craft fog

as you can see ive been playing and arranging and am thinking of a zig zag number
inspired by this dashing quilt . 

So, while ive been dreaming of zig zags ive sewn up a little
 dolly quilt for a three year old birthday,
look at that ive sewn right through that pin!
Lucky thats not my finger! 

I played around with straight line quilting, very monotonous even on this little quilt but i LOVE the effect!
 I will be trying it on  a big version soon!
i also tried a new technique for binding from this fantastic tutorial and highlyrecommend it
 - im converted!

Have a wonderful weekend !

Glad you've got your creative mojo back. Ah fabric, how beautiful it is! I like the look of that straight line quilting alot.
I'm off to sewing lessons on the 5th March - booked and paid for, with fabric and pattern at the ready. Can't wait!
Can you please remind me of the wet season build up. I'm feeling very homesick lately. I want to go home!
