Today, I am still a bit testy so I have been surfing around to various blogs just to look around and see what is out there. I am amazed at the talent and creativity that I have run across. I ran across Ryan Walsh and his quilting over a year ago and just happened upon his site again today. Today, what struck me about Ryan's work is that I am just too afraid... period- full stop!!! I have all of these lovely fabrics from fantabulous designers but I am afraid to cut into them for fear of messing up my beautiful fabrics. In looking at a tutorial for a Dresden Mug Rug, I realized----- light bulb moment--- that I can use scraps to create fabulous projects. Now, I am sure that I could have gleaned this insight from any number of sites, but it just happened to occur to me while at Ryan's.
Are any of you hoarders, too? Do you just keep building your supply of fabrics 'cause they are so lovely and then you are afraid to cut into them? Please tell me I am not alone in this:) Perhaps I need a support group:)
For now, I need to go wrap a few gifts and then check out my scrap box:) My Mom will surely appreciate a mug rug!
Thanks for stopping by- Merry Christmas!!!
