I need to create!

I want to restore furniture, make my own quilts, put details on my own clothes, knit my own socks, make gorgeous needle point decorations, pillows, aprons.... I want to create!!! I NEED to create!!! And right now my 19 year old au pair from Sweden 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 surfing 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 linen 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...

  2. Hi Annette! After reading your last post (for now?), I hopped over to your first one. I kind of feel like that at the moment... My head is full of ideas, the list of things I want to do and learn is so long... And I decided to keep a record of that by blogging. All the best dear Annette!

  3. Have so loved your blog. Go well! Thank you.
