Hello Wednesday, let's get this over with and onto the weekend shall we. I've been sewing like crazy for the past couple weeks and it has paid off -- but it has also left me in a creative funk. Do you know what I'm describing? The projects are there, the list is there -- the time is even there but the energy, the passion, the flow isn't. I'm in a bit of a sewing funk.But my solution for this is more crafting more sewing and hopefully more finishing! Ha! I'm a glutton for punishment - but more over I want to be a professional about my craft and sometimes that means doing things you don't feel like doing. So I move forward, move on and push through some UFO's and mug rugs for mom's day.
But something cool happened a guy friend of mine wants to commission me to make him a king sized quilt for a bed he just refinished. It's a big project but one I'm willing to take on. Now the dilemma of what to charge a friend for such a huge quilt.
Any how, here's what my list looks like:
|Still Working on quilting these baby lovelies!|
Will they ever get binded and finished????
|Zig-Zag Rainbow is almost binded, left over|
HST are meant for mug rugs & place mats.
|My 9-patch is slow going. Need to do more|
sewing on these little ones.
|But Hooray! A bright spot, 2 quilts finished!|
