Aurifil and Batik
When life gets you down, sometimes it is the little things that can help lift it back up. You know, like winning something.
Even though I’ve been lacking in actually making the blocks for The Desperate Housewife’s Quilt at Want it, Need it, Quilt! (http://quiltjane.blogspot.com/) I somehow still won a giveaway; a sampler pack of Aurifil Threads. Jane also was kind enough to send along a good sized cut of a batik that will play really well with my current stash I’ve been using to create the blocks. Wasn’t that nice?
Anyway, now my brain is plotting which blocks to use bits and pieces of the batik she sent me. I just need to get out of this creative funk I’ve been in since finishing the Uninspired Quilt. I thought that completing that project would help but it seems to have made the problem worse. Ugh. Perhaps the best way to face the problem is dive in head first and just work on something.
