Creative Slump

Well, I've been in a creative slump lately; my muse has definately left the building.

What is unfortunate about this is that I have a bunch of tree skirt wedges that I need to work on. I can't even think about doing more than a basic seam treatment. But even deciding what seam treatment to do where is becoming a chore.

What do you do to break out of your creative slump? I really need to get out of this.

Saturday Thrift Store Finds + Some Other Stuff

Well, on my weekly trip to the thrift store, I found a ton of crocheted doiles and a couple of "junk" bags with trims, buttons, etc.

I also found this awesome silk jacket. Tango anyone?

The wife of a friend at work is having a baby, so I made the baby boy and his big sister each a quilt.

I found this tutorial to make these cute pincushions. In fact, I liked it so much that I had to make two. I did modify the instructions to better suit my need to get things done quickly.

Saturday Thrift Store Finds

I absolutely love going to the thrift store! We have a really great one close by that is cheap and has lots and lots of "junk". I especially love finding unique clothing to chop up for crazy quilt fabric and finding crocheted/stitched items.

Here is a picture of a few of my finds from this past Saturday.

Jacque's Tree Skirt "Wedge"

I finished and mailed off Jacque's christmas tree skirt "wedge" a few days ago. Hers was interesting because it was two pieces - a diamond shape and a fan shape.

Here are a few pictures:
