Quilt Inspiration

As I mentioned in my last post my Mojo has gone, so of course if I saw something that might bring it back, off I went to check it out, well just check out this site.

If the picture does not work try here
I have saved it to my favourites.
My mojo did appear a few days ago, I just had to make a bag, I am still working on getting it quite right, but here is the result. I had cane round handles that were where the whole idea stemmed from, but they just did not go with the black and white.

A Bag for Alice

I had a  request order from my Mother in law to make a bag for her friend for Christmas, It is done, twice. The first time I made the handles the size the pattern said and that was too short according to the boss. So unpicked it all and redid them and made them heaps longer (6") I added pockets two on the outside and one inside, plus a tab to hang the car keys off (top of bag on the left).

I discovered it hurts a lot when one sticks a brand new unpicker in their thumb. Ouch.

My Lovely Granddaughter Penny

Isn't she cute? I have been visiting with Penny and her family, she can very nearly say Grandma now and also just turns her cheek if I say 'Kiss' she wont give one in return tho. Penny is nearly 15 months.

What arrived at my house while I was away.

While I was away at my Daughters house a big parcel arrived in the mail, and when I finally opened it this is what I found.

It is beautiful, exquisite, and so much work has gone into it. All the lovely ladies on my Craft Forum "conspired" and made if for me. So far I have cried everytime I type about it. But I want to say thank you again.

All in my favourite colour of blue too!!

Where has my Mojo gone

There is nix,nothing, zilch happening here, I just dont want to. My MIL wants me to make a bag for her friend for Christmas, I have the fabric the pattern and all the other instructions for doing it her way, but I just can't be bothered.

I have just spent a lovely week with my eldest daughter and her family, enjoyed shopping , looked at heaps of stuff, but absolutely nothing jumped out at me and became the start of something new.

My sewing machine is buried under heaps of stuff, so all that needs tidying as well.

It is not just the sewing that is gone, housework, is by the way, and I bought a new bit of furniture and it is just sitting where it go put after it came out of the car, no mojo there either.

Before the MOJO left I did make a small lap quilt for Arbee Designs.
I do the occasional pattern testing for them.

Here it is, It is called 'Star Struck Hearts', it is now in the huge pile of stuff that needs quilting. Again no Mojo.
