Mirror, mirror on the wall...

How many baubles do you hold?

Whilst awating my mojo to return home, I decided to repurpose a mirror. By spray painting the frame and 20 - .96 cent wooden knobs from Lowes in black. Then I epoxied the knobs to the cleaned and painted mirror; and now have a pretty place to hang and store my jewelry. (it's really hard to photograph a mirror)

That is just about all I did this weekend in the way of crafty-ness.

Lunch Time Shopping

To try to locate my mojo I went to a local quilt shop for lunch. I browsed the shop, fondled the pretty fabrics, and glanced at some awsome patterns. At first I was overwhelmed by all the fabo fabrics, all the patterns were wonderful and I was a little - well  you could say I was a bit confused as to where to start. That's not been a problem for me in a long while. After a few deep breaths and more fabric fondling, I did end up buying a Moda layer cake of Boutique by Chez Moi

And 3 yards of a yummy cream solid fabric for a background to go with the layer cake. I also picked up some applique pins by Clover.

Now as to what I might do with all this - I am thinking about applique. I left the shop happy with the purchases I made and that I was also supporting a local area shop (those are getting few and far between now with the economy the way it is).

After work I am going to place the fabrics on the coffee table in hopes to coax my mojo out of hiding. Wish me luck!!

Where's my mojo?

I seem to have lost my sewing mojo. I have looked in the obvious places - the sewing room, the scrap basket, and my bag of yarns, but no. I looked in laundry room, under the bed and even in the dishwasher - I can't find it anywhere. I guess I am going to have to put out a reward. In the mean time maybe if I go fabric shopping it might entice my mojo to come back!
