Sewing again

It was such a struggle to get my sewing desk clear. I'm still busy unpacking boxes and sorting and organising. Today I needed to sew so I really concentrated on my sewing desk and cleared it. Then I sat there. I had no idea what to sew once I had the desk! I decided eventually to quilt some of my practice quilts. I really enjoy machine quilting, but everytime I do it I realise just how much I need to practice! My pinboards go up tomorrow and there will also be more sewing.

Good to see your nearly all unpacked. Back to business as usual.
I have my fingers crossed that my new dishwasher arrives today, installation tomorrow! Yay!

Cheers - Joolz

glad you are sewing again.....I can just see you sitting at the tidy desk.....and waiting for inspiration to come.....and we all know that tidiness does not necessarily equate to being creative!....machine quilting is fun.....sounds like you are getting settled in your new house..keep stitching.....enjoy!

Do you want to come to my place and clear my sewing desk? Just kidding, although it does need clearing. I do love the colours in the quilt.
take care
Pip

I love your little quilts and its great to be sewing. I bought some fabric to make a new bag so we will see if inspiration hit my house. My little boy needs dolly quilts (hint hint).
