Rope Basket

Rope Basket 078

A tisket, a tasket, I made a rope basket! Actually the fact that I did ANYTHING this weekend is a really good step forward. Having gone back to working full-time in town in January, it has taken me quite a while to get my creative “mojo” back. I don’t have so much time these days for creative quilting pursuits, but I do have some. I feel like I’m finally getting my “sea legs” under me again.

A few weeks ago I painted my longarm studio (with the help of a very patient husband). In order to do that I took everything out (except the machine) and it didn’t get to go back in unless I really wanted it to. So I got rid of my makeshift desk (cobbled together metro shelving with a board as a desktop) and have really pared down. The walls are empty waiting for inspiration.

And now I’m working on my upstairs sewing studio (yeah, I know, I’m spoiled) cleaning and organizing. I’ve been organizing for the past year (and you wonder why I’m not done?) and each month things get a little better. I finish a project here and there. I struggle to not start anything new! I am now going through my things and figuring out which projects I will NEVER work on again and donate them. I put a small finished quilt in the St. Vinnie’s bag.

And soon the Blackberry Jam Festival Quilt Show will happen in July and I have to get something ready for that. Oh my. Maybe I can get one of my old projects finished. Cross your fingers and start your engines! May the force be with me. I’m going to need it. It’s already mid-June.

Happy quilting!

    Lisa, you can always donate fabric and small projects to EVQ. It can be used for charity quilts, Round Robin projects, or UFO raffles. We’d love to have them and I’d be happy to facilitate the exchange. Thanks in advance!

      Great minds think alike! One of the gals in my quilt group suggested the same thing at our meeting last month….and yes, I’m going to find something for EVQ! Thanks!
