In 2009 I went through a rather long creative dry spell. Nine months to be exact.
My once insatiable appetite for crafting dwindled into a craving for all things slow, sleepy and uninvolved. I quit blogging almost completely and rarely picked up a needle to thread.
On the rare occasion that I felt a little crafty I would choose small projects that could be finished quickly. I guess this project just wasn't fast enough.
This embroidered bunny has sat in a craft bin for over a year now. I thought I would sew her into a cute plushie and send her off to another home, but her persistence has won and now I cannot stand to part with her.
Finally last Friday I felt a creative twinge; an urge to sew a little something that wasn't an apron or a tote bag. Ding-dong - the light bulb went on and I went hopping down to the craft room in hopes of finding my old friend.
A few fabric scraps later I was well on my way to adding some handmade sweetness to Georgia's toy box.
I did some of my best work on this bunny. I taught myself a new stitch when I was embroidering it. Strange, I now can't remember it for the life of me. Just one of the many reasons I should do embroidery way more often!

Tonight I'm working on some prototype resin belt buckles. I thought I had sworn off resin forever (and ever), but I can't seem to cut ties with my liquidy plastic friend. If all turns out well I hope to share the results in the next week or so.
Goodnight friends! We'll chat soon.
