I've been slowing thinking the past few weeks about getting back to blogging here more. I was a little burnt out before. I was feeling a little over saturated with too much inspirations from all over the web. It was a little hard to get excited about stitching something without feeling like it has all been so overdone already.
Hope I'm not getting to down for everyone.
But I'm back and I'm feeling fresh again and I'm feeling like Betty Ninja might slowly morph into something more than just a quilting blog. Does that mean all my quilty friends won't like me anymore? I hope not, because I will certainly be quilting some more. It's just that I'm ready to start snapping shots more, and painting furniture more, and thrifting more.
At times thrifting was slim this summer, but the past week or two I've been finding great things. I think it's because I'm actually pausing and looking more carefully.
My old machine was broken and I just couldn't break down and pay the $100 bucks to have her fixed up again. Especially with her tendency to shock me with electricity while sewing.
So.. I scored this great brown Kenmore for $15 and it works. It took some fiddling and a bit of oil and some web searching. But she runs like a charm.
Anyway, I'm completely ready to feel inspired again. Ready for new challenges. By the way, I'm excited about this new site. I'll be whipping up some fun project for them soon. It just seems like fun.
