    Red face I'm Back... and my Quilting Mojo is on its way back too!

    Wow! I've been "gone" for almost 4 years?!?!!? What the heck?!?!?

    Well, my quilting Mojo quit on me when I opened my shop back in 2014 and has not been seen since. Lol. Then.... Hubby went and got me this for my birthday on Black Friday

    Who knew a brand spanking new "baby" would kick the mojo back into place! Couldn't wait to get her up and running and first thing I did was do a pillow that I'm giving to my hubby's BFF for Christmas :-D

    SOOOOOOO.... I need to do some stash diving and pull out all those gorgeous fabrics I bought that have just been chilling in their tubs waiting for me to pull them out and make something. I've got these beauties and am having a hard time finding a pattern (other than a Jelly Roll Race which I don't really want to do).

    Any thoughts? I've got 2 yds of the off-white and .75 yds of the print yardage.

    Spam me with some ideas to help get my creative juices flowing again and SORRY for the pic issues. I can't get them to rotate and enlarge Lol

    Hey there! Good to see you on! 4 years?!! It couldn't have been that long! What a great husband you have. Have fun with your new toy. Pillow looks great - is it embroidered too? You mentioned opening a shop. Was it an Etsy shop (maybe I'm confusing yours with someone else). Do you still have your shop and how is it going. Hope to see you post more. I'm sorry I don't have any creative suggestions for your fabric. Jelly rolls are always tough for me and the Jelly roll race isn't for me either.
    I am Sew Blessed!

    Welcome back. I wasn't quilting when you went AWAL, but I understand how your own business cuts into your fun personal time.

    I don't have any suggestions off hand, but you might want to keep it simple at first to get going, then you can crank it up with your next projects. Husband is a keeper.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    Welcome back, Rosie! How fun to get a new machine, and even better when you get time to use it!

    Tell us about your business and how that's been these past four years.
    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?

    I couldn't believe it either! I had to go back and look when my last real post was. Ha ha ha!

    The shop has taken over my life. Lol. It's busy which is great, but I'm not able to get to new things because I have so many custom orders or people "demanding" designs (on the zipper bags I make). I'm taking a bit of a break this month since it's been so nuts and I'm all caught up on orders to do some "me" stuff.

    I was on Etsy for a bit, but I ultimately switched to my own shop back in June of last year. It's nice not having those crazy fees... but business definitely slowed down because unless you know my shop is there, you wouldn't stumble on it doing a search. Time to have some Rosie time that is for sure!

    Hi welcome back!! I think your hubby has the wrong calendar, isn't Christmas next month lol! I am glad it isn't Christmas for real yet, I am so not ready. The only idea I have at the top of my head for quilt pattern using one JR is the Ribbon Star quilt from MSQC. Jenny has a tutorial on it. Haven't made it but doesn't look too difficult.

    Thanks! So glad to be back!!

    The shop is keeping me busy that's for sure! I started off doing novelty embroidered keychains and then I grew it to some home decor stuff and novelty gift items. Then I made a zipper bag for a knitting friend of mine as a gift and she shared it in a group on FB. Kinda exploded from there and it seems like all I've really done for the past year is make bags. It'll be great venturing back to my "roots" for a bit and making something for myself for a change.

    My shop link is in my signature if anyone wants to check it out ;-)

    Thanks! Actually, it's my birthday gift and Christmas gift all in one. My birthday was on Sunday.... so technically he was right on time. Lol. She's beautiful too!! I just want to sew all day. Ha ha ha

    I'm going to go look up the Ribbon Star! I don't know why I bought the jelly roll (I think it was a DD back years ago) and I have no clue what I was going to do with it. Lol

    Check out the tutorials, there are quite a few that highlight jelly rolls now.

    Welcome back!
