What I'm working on

Lately it seems like my plastic bag holders sell as quickly as I can get new ones listed. So today I decided I better make some more. However after I got this one done (in addition to the 9 I completed earlier in the week)... I decided I wasn't really in the mood to work on them anymore. So I didn't. Sometimes it's hard to get motivated and inspired when it feels like "production" instead of play.

I then pulled out another hot seller...key fobs...
Same thing. After getting two ready for hardware, I was bored. What is my problem?! :) Two items that sell quickly, yet I was so uninspired to restock them. What up with that?
Glancing at the baby monitor and the clock, I saw that my short window of sewing time was quickly closing. I scanned my fabric stacks and had an "aha" moment. Patchwork blanket tops, just what the doc ordered. Something I've been meaning to work on but they always get put on the back burner.

I spent the rest of my sewing time working on them. Oh happy sigh. Just what I needed. "Free form" quilts. No patterns or themes, just whatever my little heart desired. It brought the "play" back into my afternoon!!
