    Welcome Tonsau! :D When I got back I really enjoyed the BOMs, (Block of the Month) on the board. You can choose which ones and it is just one square. Before you know it you have enough to make a throw or wall hanging.

    Hey, hit up that brother of yours for some of his stash.... ;)

    Most of us have gone thru' that slump to Tonsau7 - I know I just did too, right in the midst of our giant signature block swap! Yikes!! (I did have to force myself to get 'em done....)
    Sometimes it helps to do something else creative - ANYthing else - and that will help jump start you. I took classes on Artist's Trading Cards & Art Journaling. They were a lot of fun & helped get me going again.
    How about doing a small fusible project for a gift? Maybe a simple little wallhanging or even a tote bag?
    Good luck!

    Welcome! I've been in kind of a slump all summer, too, but did have to do a block for an exchange. It was an easy one and lots of fun--hopefully I'll get back on track now too. This board does really help. So many talented people!

    Hey Pat:
    I'm doing well. Just sewed my first block last night since my surgery. It took a while, but I got it done. I really tried not to overdue it, but I was also up at 3 this morning taking pain meds. Still following doctors orders and doing my exercises. All is going well, just toooooo slooooow for me. I'm ready to be better. Thanks for asking.

    From one "7" to another, welcome to the board! How nice of your brother to reach out to us to show you all these new wonderful friends you have! :)

    There is a Classified section here where you should be able to pick up all kinds of things for not a lot of money.

    Good luck and happy sewing! I'm another on-again/off-again quilter that just joined. This is a GREAT group.

    Just started back in on my UFO's and that got my creative juices flowing. Tried a couple of things new, and now I'm in the midst of a king-size quilt....All I wanted to do was make the pattern a "little" bigger - right!

    Welcome and enjoy!

    I just got back from Joann's and found quilt fabric for $1.99 a yard! I know that it may not be the best fabric in the world but it is definitely in my price range. Go the a fabric store when you have some time to really look around and get some inspiration. The results will be worth it. YOU are worth it.

    Welcome! This is a great, inspirational group of quilters. Just looking at the pictures of everyones projects will make you want to sew something. Try a Disappearing 4 Patch, they are so much fun!

    Inspiration is , as I understand it, is 9 paarts perspiration and 1 part inspiration. !Now you know what all that swesting was about this summer ...lol..global warming I think not, just flusterfrated quilteres trying to get back in the grove. I hope that you perk up soon ands reallyt "get back" into quilting. B est...Sara
