I ordered and absorbed Handmade Home and love it. It’s what pushed me over the edge, I didn’t just want to make something, I needed to. I’ve been toying with the idea of making a quilt for awhile now. Nothing outrageous, a few squares sewn together, maybe a playmat for Aidan. A simple project to do whilst Aidan napped… rather than sitting on facebook or my baby forum. I really like “Arcadia” collection by Moda which the quilt above it made off. I’m going to suss it all out at my local quilt shop tomorrow but I’m not making any promises to myself.
If I get to the shop and it’s all too much I have a back up plan. I’ll embroider. I like the whimsy of Lilley’s stitches in the first image. I have a few drawings sitting in a file waiting to be framed but maybe I could reinvent them with thread and linen. I’m still taking photos… they’re just mainly of Aidan and I’m finding hard to see inspiration in anything else lol. I think I just need something new and different for a little while… I’ll let you know how I go.
