Confessions of a Quilt-aholic: Running Out Of Inspiration

I don’t know if this happens to other people very often, or maybe it is just because I try to pump out as many projects as humanly possible, but sometimes I feel like I am running out of inspiration. I don;t know why, but lately I haven’t been able to come up with a single thing that is amazing! I’ve made some damn good projects lately, but I’ve run out of steam, and I think part of it has to do with moving and getting set up again, and starting a new job, but I was just curious to see if this happens a lot to other people as well.

Christmas Scrap Quilt Update

Since I had to go to work today, which at least was nice exercise, I didn’t get to sew yet today. I think a craft a day keeps the doctor away, so I should be set for a while anyways. I did get quite a bit of work done last night, and I am quite pleased with it so far. I hope to finish the top either today or tomorrow, so we’ll see. I would really like to get this done soon, so I can use up all of those scraps from my other projects and move onto something else, and I want to give to my Dad as soon as possible!

Still Making Coasters

I’ve started to work on my Christmas induced debauchery now that I have finished my latest quilting project. I’ve made a total of 124 coasters so far and have mailed some out to friends and family. I have a craft show to be a vendor at in November, so it is time to stockpile all of these fun things!

Tomorrow…. Pot Holders!

Finished My Etsy Ordered Zelda Quilt!

I finally finished the most beautiful quilt in the world! Well, maybe that is slightly overreaching. I ended up doing a variegated thread on the top of gold, green, and burnt orange, and then orange on the back! I absolutely love it! I hope the client will too!

Confessions of a Quilt-aholic: Sewing in Moderation?

Can one sew in moderation?

I don’t know about most people, but when I try something new, I give it 100%! When I started quilting, I made a king size quilt top in less than a week, and I’ve been working hard on sewing and quilting ever since. I’ve been trying to work on finding a balance of sewing and normal life, but I always end up in my new sewing room, pumping out one project or another. Recently I took some time off for my depression, but now I am back and have been hard at work on Christmas themed shenanigans, and then a very lovely lady bought a quilt fro me, so I have been working on that.

Recently, I started looking for a job to help me get out of the house, and I’ve come across a few that seemed interesting, but most of them make me want to quilt instead. Haha. I’ve just been looking for some moderation to keep me more balanced. Does anyone have any advice?

I’m kind of looking for a full time job, but I also want to make sewing, quilting, and crafting my full time job, so id=s there an answer for this age old quandary? I’m not sure.
