Looking for inspiration

So those that know me will know I have been struggling with motivation for quiet some time. Im not sure if this is just down to me finding other things in life I want to do instead, it’s been a busy year already, or the battle with UK regulations which has forced so many of us into a brick wall. But on a much happier note it looks like all it took was a cuppa with the sister in law, and a trip out with the mother in law to a stitches exhibition, and I am all fired up to go again. Yippee!

So what am I going to do? That is the next question. Following the visit to the stitches fair I got bought a pattern to make up a quilted cat. I really fancied trying my hand at something different and I just love the kittie, it really reminds me of little Leo. So off I went on the net in search of some fabric to make this up and I got completely sidetracked by this:

Isn’t it amazing! I am in love with this fabric and am so happily to have it now. I bought it from Emma’s Fabric Studio and it was a lovely super fast service so I would recommend and will likely be buying more from them in the future. Now the question is just what an earth am I going to make with it as I can’t make the cat quilt now? I have already had one suggestion from a friend that wants a brooch making from one of the cat sections. Time to trawl through some tutorials and see what I can see. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated.

Other than that I have just been trying to tidy my craft room up to help organise and inspire me. It was that much of a tip though it is taking me days! I will have to post some pics again when it is spic and span as there is so much more clutter in there than when I first posted. Let’s also see if having an iOS app actually helps me keep this site up to date, fingers crossed.
