Although it feels like we just finished Quilt Market, soon it'll be time to be knee-deep in designs for Spring 2011 market in Salt Lake City. Before that happens it's good to recharge and spend some time on projects just for fun...
For me the projects don't always have to be quilts--it's fun to find something to make that I wouldn't ordinarily do. The only requirement for a "fun" project is that someone else has written the instructions.
The internet is an amazing thing. I'd gone searching for something, found a shop, found that the shop has a blog, and next thing you know, I'm making a tiny pincushion house.
Obviously mine's not Christmas themed--I used some of scraps of my Red Rose Farm as well as bits of Lecien's latest Flower Sugar. I knew I would not be capable of cutting out tiny window panes like Jo did, so embroidered mine.
It was lots of fun and I got it made in a day. I'm planning an entire village now--wouldn't a whole row of houses be darling?
It's also the last day of 2010...and I'd like to wish all of you a very Happy New Year...and may next year be filled with inspiration and creativity for all of us.
