    Your little sewing icon is cute.

    I know what you mean, but at least it is getting me going.

Rhonda does some amazing blocks, that as soon as I weep out another jean quilt. I am going to start, and catch up. because I am doing both block programs. It would be a great way to get you on your feet again. the farmers wife you will need to get the book, and the post says closed, but just jump in and join us.. Please. God bless.

    Welcome Tonsau7 from Argentina.
    I always find that going out shopping or ordering some new material gets me motivated to start sewing something new.
    There are so many talented people on this board. Just go to Pictures and look at some of the outstanding work they all do, that should inspire you.

    I like your idea to be a slacker.

    Yes jump in and get started. But be careful, this board is an addiction all its own.

    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.
    Also , Hobby Lobby has their fabric 30% off now if you have any of them around.
    I was visiting son in Texas and was able to buy quarter yards cheaply and brought home a small bag full of stitched hexagons. I am having lots of fun doing them, I just hope sewing the rows together isn't to difficult.

    Welcome to the board. Look through some magazines and visit a shop with your sister It will help inspire you. How about making a baby quilt to donate to the premie ward at your local hospital or a small lap quilt for someone in a nursing home. Set a small goal and smile when you reach it!
