  • Love this Lindsey! I’m so glad to hear these helped you out of a creative slump. I’ll be reading this list over again!ReplyCancel

    Loving this great list. Honestly rarely set aside a day to create but I do this for a church committee, so why not do it for creating also. I am going to do this and make it a habit. That means putting a big X on the day on the calendar and honoring it.ReplyCancel

  • I love this post. Thank you.

    I definitely have a few to add;

    1. It’s okay to take a day off. Go to a movie by yourself. Take a walk in the park. Hang out with a good friend and look at magazines like you did when you were in middle school. It’s so refreshing. Shockingly, you may just come home later with a bunch of new creative ideas!! Not kidding.

    2. Especially if you are a busy mom, and I see that you are….make Mother’s Day more than once a year. Yup. I think it should be 3-4. Sleep late or take a nap in the afternoon. Have your significant other, make the meals that day. Whatever makes it your day. If you need help reorganizing your closets or the cabinets, recruit you husband or a friend to help.ReplyCancel

    This is a great list. It gathers together lots of thoughts that go round in my head, too. On the subject of lists, I make a list at the start of the year of all the things I want to make (usually it includes a lot of items from the previous year). I then pick an almost achievable number of projects for each quarter and put that on a different, less intimidating list (third quarter is a bit of a washout because of school holidays). Obviously, life happens and I never get through it all but it gives me inspiration when I need it.
    Sewing reduces my anxiety – I can feel the tension when I haven’t been able to get my sewing machine out.ReplyCancel

I have a new quilt pattern available today, the Clementine quilt! This quilt was originally featured in the July 2014 issue of American Quilter and is now available for individual purchase.     Clementine is a paper pieced quilt where fabric placement helps achieve the circular patterning of the rings. I love that paper piecing […]

I am very excited to share this free pattern with you today. This beautiful quilt pattern was designed by Judy Martin in her 1984 Book, Scrap Quilts. I received this book from my Aunt in Texas many years ago and this pattern just jumped out to me. I knew it would be gorgeous as a […]
