Calling all Muses

I've made a lot of stuff in the last couple of years. Yet, I have been away from my making for over a month and it seems to have me flummoxed. I feel a bit stuck and need your help. What should I make? What do you want, what do you need, what would you like to see? Please be my muses and help inspire me. I'd appreciate it most greatly. Thank you.

Oh, and a correction: Monday's posted quote (turns out) can not be attributed to MLK Jr. I don't know the exact source but, I do still think the quote said what I wanted to say. Sorry for any confusion.

Oh I have so many projects going on and it seems like I have more ideas than fingers. I just finished the Mina Dress by Alicia Paulson - Great pattern and Next I think I will work on something for the moms for this weekend. Have you ever embroidered Pony Girls hand print? I want to do this before my little ones get too big.

Love the look of the notebook covers and zippy bags. How about a case for DPNS and circular needles? I really like the things with embroidery, ribbons, patches ...

Basically things for myself, really!

I want some inspiring shorts for my DD. And I am looking for inspiring garden attire and handy garden "tools" to keep me in the yard this year. Maybe a garden hat and apron-come-toolbet-phone-holder? I look to blogs like your for inspiration.

How about a patchwork blanket for pony girls's bed? or your own I am totally obsessed with recycling my little one's old shirts and pj's turning them in to little quilts.

Do another one of your wall hanging thingies, The one with the bit of old kimono and the buildings you did was the most original thing I have seen you do. I REALLY loved it. More more more.

I have been so wanting to make bible book covers or just book covers for that matter. I can see it in my head but would love one of your tutorials for stitching up a book jacket.

Look how gorgeous your making mosaic is.
I've just started making patchy pillow cases with crochet edging for my girls' beds. They are quick and fun and they love them and I think you could make some gorgeous ones.

It's amazing how quickly we can get out of the practice of making when we take a break. Happens to me all the time.

I think you should make something scrappy and patchwork so you can just play freely and see what happens!

The one thing have been meaning to make for ages, is a really bright and retro lookinging quilted sewing machine cover. I want something that inspires me to get on a sew.

Flaming Nora said...

How about a stitched album cover art work a la Lisa Hannigan? I can so just see you making something amazing.

Oh your patchy frocks for little ones are to DIE for! Off to see if any are on sale at the moment. What about some pretty tote bags too?

I loved your little art quilt you made a while back, perhaps another one of those!

I agree that you should do Pony Girl's hand print or thumbprint. I did one recently that's in my shop now: http://www.etsy.com/listing/72770248/personalized-finger-print-embroidery. That is always pretty cool. But I also like the idea of a lap quilt/blanket for sitting on the couch with. They are lovely for the living room, handy for when you need to cuddle up but don't want to go get a blanket out of the hall closet, and they are quicker to make than a full size quilt.

I have no ideas for your creative muse. My well has run dry and lacks any spark to dig it deeper.

I do want to add I think that quote is Gahndi.

I think you should make a plushy doll with a super cute dress on :-) Id love a tutorial hehe

Colette said...

How about trying something you've meant to have a go at for ages - and just see where it takes you.

Oh Lola...all of your sewing is so beautiful!!!
I did see recently a cylinder type of bag with a hole in the top...You just unzipped the top...placed your yarn inside...Pulled a thread of yarn out of the hole in the top..and it was a yarn holder that you could carry around etc...
I found a few on ebay...
Very nifty idea...
