Mojo Returning?!

While waiting for my mojo to return, I have been cleaning up some of my leftover blocks and hsts.  They will join the pile down in the dungeon along with the rest of the quilts waiting to be quilted.  Maybe I will take care of some of the pile next weekend!  I think if I just quit fretting about what project to work on and how to get everything completed, the rest of my mojo might come back.  Just relax and enjoy the process!!

I am currently working on a baby quilt for a friend.  I am using her bridesmaid dress as the main color and some fabric from Maywood's "Memories of Love"

Scrappy Mountain Majesties!

In the past couple of weeks I have completed several little projects and one big one!  I made Bonnie Hunter's "Scrappy Mountain Majesties".  It is approximately 100 x 100 inches.  It will be a bit smaller after quilting but it will fit on our queen size bed.  And both of us will be covered!

I will show you pictures of the smaller projects tomorrow!

For the Boys! My Turn!

It is day six of "For the Boys" blog hop!  And, it is my turn--YEAH!  First a HUGE THANK YOU  to Madame Samm  from Sew We Quilt; and our cheerleader Amy, from Sew Incredibly Crazy.  This is my second blog hop but I am still nervous and excited!  Here's my story (and only a story!):

I don't know my name, I am still inside my mommy, but she calls me "her little pumpkin"!  I am almost ready to enter the world and my mommy has been getting my room ready.  I have been dreaming about what my room will look like.  My mommy has some good friends who have made her a couple of baby quilts.  I sure hope that they aren't pink or fluffy.

Oh boy, bugs and worms!

Oh. look Charlie Brown!

Oh my,  mommy has some play mats for me.  They would sure save scrapped knees!

Vrooooom Vroooom!

Golly, look at all of the cars and trucks that I can play on too!
You know, my mommy and daddy went to lots of movies in the last few months.  They saw Star Wars and Superman.  I sure loved those movies.  Maybe when I get bigger, mommy will get me some pillowcases!  Ouch!
WoW Superman Pillowcase

Oh, Oh, Oh, something is going on.  Ouch, something is squeezing me.  I have better hurry!  My daddy is almost as lucky as me.  My mommy got him a big quilt for his bed!  I hope that I get to sleep with him and cuddle under this warm quilt!!

Ouch, Ouch, gotta go!

Help, I have lost my quilting mojo!!

I can't find my ambition, my inspiration, my enthusiasm, my mojo.  I have lots and lots of project ideas but there they sit.  I can't decide on what to start next.  Maybe I am on overload and need to take a break.  I did sew this week end and finished a couple of little quilt tops.  The first is a quilt called "Kaye's Scrap Squares" from a Fons and Porter Scrap Quilts 2011.  I want to use a flannel backing so I can cuddle up with the dogs this winter!

The second quilt is a tutorial called "This Way and That Way" from Pleasant Home Patterns.  I used a bunch of Fig Tree fabric from my stash.

Okay, I have turned my sewing machine and iron off.  If you have any advice, please let me know!
