My two nieces have made it their mission in life to "inspire" me with the most audacious, kitschy things they can find at their local antique store - and believe me, they are good shoppers! Here is a picture of their most recent find.

The scary thing is that I really like the things they find! I love the creativity and "outside-the-box" thinking and hope I can be even a little bit as creative as their unknown designers. So tell me - what inspires you?

On another note, I did a little more on my Christmas stash buster quilt - and was reminded once again that haste and rotary cutters are a bad combination. I'm currently holding my left index finger in the air while I carefully type - I managed to slice off the side of it while cutting the strip sets! A word to the wise - this is NOT something you want to try!! But I'm excited that soon I'll be able to see the results of all the piecing I did this weekend - I should be able to get back to sewing tomorrow...... Here are pictures of the fabric strips and beginning strip sets so you can see what I'm working on.

Well, I think that's all I'm going to try to post tonight - not so easy to type with nine fingers! Have a wonderful evening and day tomorrow and be inspired!!!

  1. lol! I'm glad we could inspire you, Aunt Sarah. What inspires me? Hmm...very hard. I'm not exactly sure. I guess you could say that Tolkien inspires me to write fantasy and Joyce Carol Oates inspires me to simply write. I can't really think of anything else. :\
