I have managed to accomplish a bit while on break. I had felt very "creativity-challenged" back in November--both with blogging and with quilting/crafting. I realize now that part of the quilting problem was the horrific state of my sewing room. No before photos! And really, no after photos either as this is a work in progress. However here is a photo of part of my stash--after it has been culled and ROYGBIVed.
It is so much easier to find a certain color or print with it downsized like this! Now if I can just keep it this way. I have plans for reorganizing the rest of the room, slowly but surely. I have done a bit of sewing too. On the sidebar of the blog I will attempt to keep track of current projects and UFOs. This list will grow. Many projects were packed away. Ya gotta know when to fold 'em, as Kenny Rogers would say. Just getting some UFOs out of my line of sight improved my attitude 100%.
DH and I decided to purchase a new mattress recently--it had been a while LOL. And boy, did that make a big improvement in my sleeping!!! Of course, that meant a new comforter was needed. And new sheets. And new throw pillows. And new nightstands. And a new wallhanging! Ya can't just buy the horse now, can you?
In keeping with the theme of change and new beginnings, I also decided to start the new free BOM from Bunny Hill Designs. I just love their patterns and this looks to be so cute. Here's my 12 8 1/2" squares of creams and whites all cut and waiting. And here is the first little block all appliqued and embroidered.
