And back in December Kim had a giveaway of some Moda Nest Charm squares on her blog and I won those! Thanks Kim! I have a huge addiction to charm squares these days.
I've been having issues finding the best time of day to take pictures and finally just gave up and took them when I thought about it.
I have decided that 2009 is going to be a year of inspiration for me. My stitching/quilting/knitting/crocheting friends are a constant source of inspiration for me and they inspire me to do everything just a little bit better.
This weekend I started reading Mary Shelley's Frankenstein and I was moved by a line in the foreward about her being challenged to write a ghost story and how she refused to write just any ghost story, she wanted to write one worthy of the title ghost story.
I don't know exactly what I'm trying to say here but I want to thank those you that have blogs for being a constant inspiration to me in my crafty pursuits. Because of your blogs I venture out of my comfort zone(little Xs on fabric), I try new things, knitting, sewing, quilting, crocheting an intricate doily. My attempts may not always live up to my expectations, as I lack some serious skilz, but your projects give me the courage to try. That's big, at least in my little crazy world.
This year I hope that I can spread a little inspiration too. Not sure how, not sure when, but you all make me want to be a better stitcher, sewer, quilter, knitter, and I thank you for that.
