Open for Creativity

>> Monday, October 19, 2009

This past weekend saw an unusual amount of creative activity here. It was fun and exhilarating. And a little bit tiring. The result? An almost empty design wall!

I started a new project. I am working on designing a quilt and had a chance to actually get 2 rows started! Normally, this would have taken a few weeks! In addition I also worked on my Sprouts of Joy quilt that I'm designing.
I actually have the limbs sewn on now with a light blue thread using the zigzag stitch on my sewing machine. The little nest is something else I came up with this weekend. There's a post about it too!

All the miscellaneous blocks got sewn up and taken down too. I didn't take before and after pictures, but, trust me, I needed to get some stuff off the wall and start fresh. It's amazing how much I will put off finishing something - until a new idea comes along!

There's no stocking to make with Pat Sloan this month so I find myself with an OPEN week. I'm filling it up by making some bags/purses for birthday gifts and looking towards January birthday presents - one for a niece, one for a nephew.

What's on your design wall this week? Check out Judy's links to see what's up!

With Joy,
Sarah Vee

Both quilts look so happy and cheerful! Nice to get way more accomplished than you thought you would.
