I know I said I was in a creative slump and I still kind of am but that never stops me from buying new things. Why is that?
I did figured out why I am in this slump. Work gets stressful beginning January 1st and ends on April 15th with a large party. So when I am stressed I tend to gravitate towards crafts and the creativity starts to flow. Now that April 15th is long gone work is back to normal and there is not as much stress. So now I have do not seem to have a reason to craft.
I have been slumping around since the 16th and now I am ready to get back on the band wagon. I do hop that posting my new toys and what I plan to do might give me the motivation to started.
Last weekend I went to a quilt store that I had not been to before and what do you think I found there? Did you guess? ....... Tea Towels sold by the yard. The woman who owns the store loves to embroider and said these are the best towels in all the world. They have a vintage look and feel to them with a slight yellow hue and hemmed on the sides but not the ends. I bought 1.5 yards so I can make 2 towels. As I was getting ready to buy the towels the biggest rick-rack I have ever seen. I have a sick love affair with rick-rack, I had to buy at least 4 yards.
Thanks to Susie I also bought another new toy. A bias tape maker. Hopefully no more burnt fingers. I really hope it works. Now to just decide where to start.
Have a great weekend everyone.
