Being grabbed by the bits by my "muse" ...



Whoever or whatever that is. But I feel like I am in the grip of "something" and everything is coming in a flood. I think this has been a very weird "watershed" moment. Weird. I feel like I am in a daze. I have to tell you that it wasn't just my quilting that was going to get the elbow, I was getting ready to heave my writing as well. I have been plugging away and plugging away. Sometimes however, it can get very weary and it sucks getting rejection after rejection. After rejection after rejection. And more rejection and then another rejection and a bit more rejection for good measure. But ... I had something happen that has seen me writing again with passion. It was a whirlwind 5 days I spent buried in this new project until it got sent off Midnight Wednesday. Ever since then it's been as if someone has set my head on fire and my creative juices should be bottled right now. Reckon they might be worth something with the amount of things swirling around in my brains at this present moment.

So here is what is on the menu as we speak.

A new laptop cover and a new block bag (for my workshops I am teaching)
A new quilt made from two packs of charm squares
A new quilt for teenagers made it mainly homespun but with a little bit of zhushing to make it fab. I think this will be my very first quilt a long for here
Plus a new fabric range. Oh, oh, oh a new fabric range to design. My brain is just humming and it all feels so bloody marvellous.

Like I just woke up from a very long sleep and now I am ready to get going. Lovley.

The charm square quilt will hopefully be going to Katoomba for their quilt show in March along with another quilt I have talked about here (but it needs to be finished as well), but I might spare a post for that all by itself.

And here is a wee spot of evidence:
