    Probably pretty typical, but I'm most inspired by shopping, especially online. So many choices of fabrics and batting and notions and patterns and whatnot, and I'm not limited to what local stores carry!

    I have a really good time shopping on eBay for fabric squares. Some of the color and print combinations are inspiring, and it's nice to have those first steps done for me (washing, pressing, cutting).

    And I'm one of those night people, I guess? My favorite time to start any craft work is after dinner when the kitchen is cleaned up, when I feel "off duty". I can sew or knit long into the night, and at my best between 1am and 3am. But boy oh boy am I dragging my heiny the following morning! :lol: Anyone else a night person?

    Blessings

    ps Great great crazy quilt! What a wonderful gift!

    I'm most inspired early Satuday or Sunday mornings - especially after a long work week. I get up, shower while coffee's brewing. After getting dressed, I pop my ipod into external speakers and sip coffee while playing with my fabric. Just looking and feeling the fabric gets me motivated to either finish a project or start a new one.

    Here is one of my latest inspirations.

    Is that a patchwork jacket? I love it......HOW? HOW? and Sarah I love your crazy quilt......I hope you put your name on it. It is one of a kind, not a copy of others, I love your originality.
    As far as inspiration, I'm not orginal, buying fabric , or a magizine, or a quilt show.

    I was a pm (3-11) nurse for many years & worked my share of nights (11-7) too. Then I worked days for many years after that. Now that I'm retired I find myself falling back into my pm persona - I get a second wind after supper & can sew or read into the wee hours of morning. Or just sit on the deck in the dark watching the stars. I guess everyone has their own internal rhythm & that must be mine. I makemyself get up at 7:30 though no matter what. It is soooo awesome being retired!

    I am looking forward to the day I retire. I am truly a morning person! Sometimes I'm a little late for work because I start playing with my fabric and lose track of time then have to run for the train. :cry: Oh well, what's a girl to do. I can't help myself.

    :) :?: Yes we all need inspiration and there's LOTS here. I'm going back to my Dresden Plate Quilt which I'm FMotioning Swirls and loops on the sections. I Love it . But for now I'm here and have a bit of Quilter's Block like Writer's Block sooooo don't know when I'll be back round to it. I'm new at FM but I love going forwards,Backwards ,sideways and these swirls I do are lovely and I really don't have to mark it or think about it just GO.. And Enjoy it. When am I inspired ,Never can tell Books and Nature makes me want to do an ART quilt somedays. Anything Goes these days and with quilting it can be done a gillion ways!!!!
