It has been a slow month creatively- aside from the show now on display, it's been almost non-existant. It's hard to be creative when you are feeling both emotionally and physically drained.
I'm trying to get back into it with a simple project that will nonetheless be very appreciated by the recipients. I spent some time over the weekend cutting up tees, hoping to get a couple of lap-size quilts. I have twenty-five good size blocks, and plenty of plain fabric to fill in where needed. Here's the first set up on the design wall--
First step is to get the blocks squared, then play with design options on graph paper. Then I'll know what I have to cut out to fill in. Add some medium gray sashing between the blocks, some simple straight line quilting- I'm hoping to get this done quickly (for me!), and hoping that this will get the creative juices flowing again.
I also chose some fabric and ironed fusible on it, hoping to play with some postcards. Can you tell I'm craving some bright summer colors?
Another simple, quick project.
I had some learning moments while getting my pieces ready for hanging- but I'll need time and energy to collect my thoughts in a coherent manner. So I'll leave you with this, and hoping for positive thougts that my muse and energy start visiting me again!
