back in the saddle


I've been in a total sewing funk. I totally fell out of my groove once the holidays were done. After not even setting foot in my sewing room for almost a week, I forced myself to go in and just do SOMETHING. Anything. And what could be better than overdue bee blocks?

The first are for Bee Liberated:


And these are for the do. Good Stitches charity bee:


I also just opened up a package of new fabric from Purl Soho, thanks to a couple of generous Christmas gift cards from family. (Thank you Rita!) There's Liberty! Nani Iro! Lecien stripes! And yes, even a bit of Greenfield Hill. I originally didn't plan to buy any of this new line. But then I felt like I needed those small prints, and they do not disappoint!


With all of this great new stuff, I think I feel some of my mojo returning... and just in time, because I've got things just itching to get done. Stay tuned!

I think Greenfield Hill is much better in person than it seems on the screen!

I am in a bit of funk too. Christmas always inspires an organizing frenzy in me, and I have been tearing the house apart instead. I am planning on spending some time with the machine tomorrow though!

I'm drooling over that top print.

I think the holidays can tire out even the most die-hard crafters.

Hi Krista...you are sounding just like me...losing your mojo after the holidays...but with a little help from some beautiful fabric you're getting it back! Love the red and aqua blocks.

Thank you for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment...would love to trade something for some black kisses...let me know what you'd fancy in return ;-)
