New Projects

After much dragging of my feet and procrastination, I finally began working on projects for our 4 Friends Sale mid-March! It's not that I don't enjoy it, I just needed some time off. Well, that's all over now and I'm busy, busy, busy! The house is a mess to prove it!

As some of you know, it is a constant process coming up with something different and fresh. I think that can be more exhausting and draining than the actual making process.

Then, there are those ideas that are just that -- ideas -- that don't exactly come together. Those are the frustrating ones that you spend a lot of time on because you know it would be really cool if you could get it to work. Sometimes you just have to say "uncle" and move on. You guys never see those attempts and never will if I have anything to do with it!!!
Aanny-way, even though some items have been made for years and years, I hope I came up with a version that says "ME". When you see it, you will know it had to be made by me.

As Elf Patty would say, "it's Martherized". Not my most favorite term, but I know it implies something positive and you get the idea.

So, I have been playing with fabric and placing my collage designs on it. It takes a little "doing" and does have limitations, but I have been liking the end result! I hope you will agree.

I know that my 200th post is looming on the horizon and I will celebrate with a GIVEAWAY!!! So stay tuned, because I hope to entice and dazzle you into entering the drawing with something HOT off the workroom table.

Okay, so this is off the subject. I just want to let all of you in the snow-ridden parts of the country know that I have been thinking of you. I hope that you and your families are okay with all of the snow. My cousin in Maryland is stuck at home with no power. Fortunately, I think she is staying with friends until her husband returns from a business trip and they can "dig out". Schools are closed so she doesn't have to try to get to work. I guess the saying "it's not done until it's overdone" applies. My hope is that it will be "overdone" soon and you will see those beautiful cherry trees blossoming in no time. Take good care, M.

The sneak peeks of your projects look intriguing. It's always good to take a break and come back refreshed and ready with new ideas.

Love the peek, it looks really lovely.
I have this same vibe going on...lately, things just aren't coming together, as planned, that and lots of unexpected events. No school, people coming home early and
sickness all have interrupted the creative flow!
Can't wait to see your lovely work!
