Creating New Items

While I really enjoy making my memo boards and crochet top towels, I think it is fun to explore new options and ideas.
Love looking through magazines for inspiration and just looking at what you have on hand to see what clever idea crosses your mind.
I walk every day and look for ideas in nature in the colorful fall leaves or the bare winter branches of the trees.
Sometimes I go into a fabric store and a piece of fabric just reaches out and grabs me and says take me home and you will find a use for me later. Can't resist those pieces.
Batting ideas back and forth between my sister and me also inspires me sometimes.
Note her blog from last night
She has great ideas for quilting in her blogs.
What do you do for inspiration for new projects?

  1. I haven't met a craft I didn't like (well, maybe making stained glass..) All those little bits of things that call out to me have come in very handy often. As long as I have room to store them all I'm ok!
