i'm dying over this!

I love Sandi Henderson! It's true.  She may be #2 after Amy Butler.  (Their colorways often coordinate, did you know that?).  I like her Meadowsweet line, but couldn't get totally behind it.  AND THEN. And then she came out with Meadowsweet 2.  You might see why it's my new favorite!

See those blues and greens and pinks and yellows!! oh so lovely!!  The problem is, I don't need it.  I really don't.  And I have no time to sew with it because of all the other lovely projects I have in the queue.  But if I WON it, now, that would be okay, right?  You can enter to win a fat quarter bundle too at Jaybird Quilts.  But don't enter unless you REALLY want it.  Cause I really want to win.  :)  But you should check out her blog, if you don't already know about it.  She's cool!

Oh and do you love Tula Pink like I do?  I just saw these on her blog!

AND YOU CAN BUY THEM!! Starting a fund right now.

Do any of you have any motivation techniques to get you going again?  I haven't sewn on my machine since the move.  I have lots of projects just waiting to get going, but I can't seem to make myself start cutting.  I hate those first cuts.  I don't like the pinning and measuring for fear of making a mistake.  Oh the agony!  I need help.

I heart Sandi too and i really like this new version of meadowsweet - can't wait to see it in person. Pinning, you don't like pinning? I never pin, pattern weights and rotary cutter all the way baby! ;)

I need some motivation, too. I keep pulling fabric out and then putting it away again. I think my problem is that I have two quilts pieced and ready to go but I am afraid to actually quilt them.

I'll vote for you to win the fabric because maybe that will give you some motivation. Good luck!!!

Oh my gosh... those are cute shoes! You are my my motivation and all of those other bloggy quilters. Sometimes when I get blocked I go to flickr and let myself get sucked into a search that makes me run to my machine! :)

I hope you win those lovelies!

Amy, got to check out those shoes!!! The only thing is I usually wear flip flops ;-) I sewed for the first time since my move yesterday so I know how you are feeling...except I don't have a newborn to take care of...just teenagers and a pre-teen ;-) You'll get back in the swing of things soon I'm sure.
