remember these images that inspired me a few weeks ago? the top is just about complete and ready to be sandwiched and quilted. i hate showing quilts before they are all the way done because it just doesn't do them justice. but let me tell you- i LOVE this quilt in real life. can't wait to get it ironed, quilted and bound. i thinking a dark cream thread in figure 8s and then bind it in bright yellow or the dark green? the back is half white and half blue floral. it's a queen size. i was planning to sell it, but i'm getting pretty attached to the thought of picnicking on it meself. yum. and speaking of quilts, because of some email requests after seeing cate's quilt in the previous post, i will be making more wallpaper quilt kits available on monday of next week in the shop, so yay.

well, the fabrics are picked out and the design is drawn and i'm strating to cut...looking forward to a weekend of sewing. i love that i finally have my machine back out and i'm not just saying tomorrow tomorrow like i have for the last nine months. i drive myself crazy.
i just need some sun to peek out more through that window so i don't get all depressed and go curl up in bed instead of working. then i will be forced to watch tv where i will inevitably see four thousand five hundred ninety eight commercials for "the voice" and then i will have to break the tv and then what will i have to do?
ps- grant and i are watching the laker game right now, and grant is trying to sabotage the hornets by using harry potter spells. he keeps yelling stupify and petrificus totalus at the tv. and it's working...
i've been a little depressed and overwhelmed with life for the last little while. (it happens). i always know when i'm blue because i don't feel like making anything. and i don't want to blog. naturally then, the first sign that i'm on the up is that i get inspired and start itching to make things again slash wonder where my knitting basket is. you know what? i love that tumblr, because all i had to do was look at mine for a little bit and there you go- i'm absolutely dying to make a quilt. hopefully i'll feel all the way back to normal soon...and then i will make something like this:
plus, it will save me the trouble of trying to organize and find room for all my fabric at our new place that is sans craft room. i think i'd rather just unpack it and sew it up. yep, i think i'm feeling better...
ps- this is my favorite quilting book ever.
