Miss Crankypants and the Case of the Finished Items

Ever since Sew We Quilt hosted that Nancy Drew blog hop I have been finding myself taking every day titles and photo captions and making into possible titles for a ND book.  Well, obviously not a real book title.  We've had a lot of crankiness here lately and not just on Miss Z's part.  I know I am not alone in saying that lately I feel like I am losing my motivation.  Not only do I not want to get my LONG, LONG list completed, but I haven't snuck off to start new projects, well except that one.  I just don't really want to work on anything really, except maybe take a nap.  I have been reading this lately all over the blogworld from other quilters, so I know that I am not alone.

So Thursday night I made myself do something while I was watching that new show "the moment" on tv.  I also finished up the last little bit today on these projects and so I have 2 more done! *\o/* *\o/*

The Spring Checkers project was made from the left-overs from the following 4-patch & Squares Baby Quilt.  I still had eve more 4-patch boxes that I am making into a couple bibs, which hopeful with be completed soon.  I started this following Quilt I think early 2012, but it might have been Fall of 2011...needless to say it has lingered!

  1. Lovely, Shanna! I've also learned that just doing some clean up or working on an old project is sometimes just what I need for that motivation to come back. :)

  2. What an awesome use of extra pieces! Love the tabletop checkerboard. :) Very nice push through a slow-down in mojo. Sometimes we just lose steam. It happens. :)

  3. Gorgeous finishes, Shanna. We all seem to be losing mojo lately. I think it's been a very long winter and we need some sunshine!

  4. It seems as though when the warmer weather hits, many people loose their mojo. I think they call it spring fever!!!

    Your checkerboard idea and quilt are just fabulous.

  5. My sewing focus has been on little zipper pouches, even though there is a commissioned quilted waiting to be designed and made! I've made 6 in the past few days. Your table toppers are cute! I love the back on the second one.


I love to hear from my readers!
