Inspirations


I've really been enjoying all the inspiration boards, and it is really weird that this is the week that I've not caught up and joined in the the ...this is... from three buttons and the weekly idea from Pip. I love seeing other people's boards and what inspires them, and I've been thinking about my own. I don't change it enough, therefore after awhile I don't look at it, therefore it is no longer real inspiration. What I have been inspired to do this weekend, is clean up my inspiration board and make it worth looking at. I am continually collecting little things that do inspire me and putting them amongst the rubble, but if I had my board at the ready, and some pins, I might just use it properly. I was asked to make some Easter Cards for the Post Office where I have my other cards. I'm not really into sending Easter Cards myself, but from a business point of view, I was happy to oblige and the kids helped me and followed the chocolate eggs all around the garden while I snapped some shots. I have some good bribes at the ready right now.

I have been inspired by Betz White lately with all her georgous felting projects and am going ot try making some broaches. This was just a little try while watching TV the other night.

Another project I have started this weekend is my cheneille quilt. Ric Rac gave me 40 yummy squares for my 40th birthday (I'm not going to say how long ago that was!!) and I have been wanting to make it up since then. I have finally cut cut cut yesterday, and I'm about to lay it out on the floor when I publish this post. Wish me luck...
I'm just loving hanging out in my sewing room. My poor little Pete keeps saying I must come out to eat, but I really don't feel like it.
