Introducing Bridget

This is Bridget, my creative inspiration muse. She has been on vacation for the last couple of weeks but she is about ready to come home. She occupies a prominent place on my sewing table overseeing all activities. I am encouraging her and offering her all sorts of incentives to co
me home.
I have been working even though Bridget is out of town. I just love the disappearing nine patch. One of my daughters in law has several friends who are having babies and I offered to make some baby quilts for her to give as gifts. I found this darling fabric for the backing at Wal-Mart. I think some Wal-Mart's aren't carrying fabric any more but ours has a good selection and the prices are great.

I am hoping Bridget will back soon because I
have lots of things I want to do. I have joined Quilt Pixie in a creative experience. For years I worked and took care of my family and suppressed my creative side because there wasn't time for anything but what had to be done. I am trying to rediscover that part of my personality and Bridget is a huge help! (I am a nut if you haven't already figured that out!)

chocolate usually tempts my muse... or shiney buttons... or a trip to the second hand clothing store for fabric and embellishement buying....

chet, the dapper sock monkey is my muse...sits atop my bookshelf and watches over me. he can be terribly critical sometimes. i have to scold him for that!
we are so much alike...i did the same thing...creativity on the back burner while i raised my family. it's all exploding now!
