I'm feel a little like Indiana Jones in regards to this year's ornament: Cats. Why did it have to be cats? I love kitties, but have yet to create one with Sculpey that looks right. I've been proud of the ornaments I've made my nephew in past years. I fear this isn't going to be one of them. I'll be glad when it's done.
I sewed! For all of five minutes. I finished a few more string triangles. I'm so close to having that whole pile completed (and then I can make something with it!). My sewing backlog contains clothing fixes for my sister and making some Frankenstein batting. Need to finish those before I can return to applique and other fun stuff. Inspiration and motivation are at a low ebb.
I received a cute little square ironing board for Christmas from a thoughtful friend. Perfect for paper piecing or small seams. Will come in handy when I tackle my next NYB quilt, although it will mean far less steps on my fitbit if I don't have to walk to the other room to iron seams. Who knew that piecing could be such a workout?
I'm hoping I'll have some time at the end of the month to focus on sewing some fun stuff.
