I need to create!

I want to restore furniture, make my own quilts, put details on my own clothes, knit my own stockings, make gorgious needle point decorations, pillows, aprons.... I want to create!!! I neeeed to create!!! And right now my 19 year old stay in babysitter is pushing me to start a blog (and I am starting it right now!) about my lovely life in the country (as she thinks it is absolutely fantastic in every aspect...) and I am surfiung blogs to see what this "blogging" thing is all about... And I found this one:


Absolutely fantastic! I just have to make a quilt like that for Nelly's bed. I just have to learn how to do these things! And by the way my first quilting project will be to make something out of the St Croix fabrics that Mother-in-law sent to Jay a while ago. As they are so precious to him (childhood memories from growing up in the Caribbean...) it would be a pleasure to be able to put them up on the wall as a piece of art instead of having them folded up in the linnen closet.

PS I am so full of inspiration I don't know what to do with myself... Got to get myself a sewing machine. Right now! And find a great fabric store. And start my project on restoring my latest flea market steal, three old chairs with padded seats that needs to be taken care of. For only 7 bucks...
