A new project!


I have so many projects on the go that are yet to be completed, but there are times when the creative juices aren't flowing as efficiently as one would like... and what better way to get them flowing again than by starting a new project?

I love nothing better than making creative gifts for people, it really motivates me. And it is often a great source of inspiration to put yourself into the shoes of the recipient-to-be and think about what they would like, and not necessarily what you want to make for them! They may prefer colour palettes that aren't necessarily in your comfort zone, or have a love of handbags of which you've never made before. By putting yourself in the mindset of another allows you the opportunity to think outside the box.

However, there comes a time when you want to look very much "inside the box" and just need to make something for yourself. And for me, that time had come! So I took myself off to the craft store and discovered these beautiful fabrics. I teamed them up with some co-ordinating threads and will be posting soon to show you what I've made with them!

Until next time, happy creating!

I'm so glad you found me, chickee! Nice meeting you AND keep blogging! You'll love it and it'll help keep ya same, honey. Just keep putting your thoughts to "paper" or in this case, "keyboard" and you'll find a following shortly. Blog "artfully" and you'll have people flocking to your blog. I like what you've done so far, lovey! ;-)

Hey Vikki! Welcome to blogland! I landed here be 'accident', was inspired by our very own Kerryanne and am now almost as addicted to blogging as I am to fabric - ALMOST! Tee! Hee! Hee! Fabric tends to follow me home - just ask Kerryanne! :0) I, too started a new project today after falling in love with some new fabrics - really I should be finishing instructions for a class I'm teaching next weekend ... but the imagination ran away with me! Looking forward to seeing what you've created - Bear Hugs! KRIS
