Nearly Broken

I've been feeling like everything has been broken lately. For instance my work computer, my bike, my car. I also have felt a slight creative withdrawal lately. I've been wanting to create, but just have had no energy or creative desire to. Luckily, that has snapped out of my system. Monday I felt like my old self and things have been rolling away.

So....Can you believe how cute this dress is? I can't stand it. It is a vintage find.



I was so inspired by the Gee Bend's quilts lately that I have been working on this quilt.

The fabric is from jeans and the sheet that I did some fabric painting on. Man that sheet was huge, it has lasted through several different projects.

I would like the back to be another quilt. I am thinking something very simple and modern. Something along the lines of Denyse Schmidt's stripe quilts.

After this quilt is finished I hope to start another Denyse Schmidt inspired quilt soon with some of these from my stash and whatever else I find in my rummaging.
