Inspiration

I don't know about yall but sometimes I am just not feeling it.  I think this is one of those times.  I have been destashing as yall know and that has been good.  I really thought getting all that fabric out and sorting through everything would inspire some creativity well not so much.  I have so many WIP like so many I refuse to count and actually put a number on it.  I think I want a long arm so very badly that I can't get past the quilting part.  Like I refuse to do it without a long arm lol.  Lets keep in mind I have only laid hands on a long arm one time.  So I have been working very slowly on projects and that annoys me even more.  I am however going to QUILTCON!  I am so super excited about it and just know that there is no possible way I can't be inspired at that event!  If you are going let me know and maybe we can meet up.  This leads me to my topic of retreats for inspiration.

I have been to 4 retreats and let me just say they are the best thing since sliced bread.  I live extremely rural like google aint even getting you out this far.  So to connect with fellow sewers and creative people is just a blessing to my soul!  I have been to Sew South twice and blogged about it here and here.   Let me just say I love love love this retreat and Jennifer is like the sweetest ever and I consider her a friend.  I hope to be attending again very soon.  I also attended a Missouri Star Quilt Company Retreat.  This retreat was with Vanessa from the Crafty Gemini and Jenny Doan so yeah it was way fabulous.  Then last summer I attended a Crafty Gemini retreat in FL.  This is where I played on the long arm and was smitten.  I will post some photos of these retreats since somehow I failed to blog about them.  Please follow me on Instagram to follow along with the Quilt Con goodness. 

My 24 hr start to finish 1st time long arming quilt.  Notice the super tired person!  Crafty Gemini Retreat

Missouri Star Retreat!  Fun bunch of girlies right there!
So if you are able I would encourage you to attend a retreat or have your own with your friends.  It is a wonderful inspiration and fellowship.  Don't forget to let me know if you are going to quilt con and follow my instagram to keep up with all the fun!  Blessing to you all!

  1. When I was blogging, I always wanted to attend Sew South...but it just wasn't a possibility for me. =( I understand the funk of not being inspired all too well...so I hope that your retreat helps to rekindle that spark for you...or get the flame going again.
