Above are some photos of the fabrics along with a photo of how cute everything looked all packaged in the box. Below are some pictures of the necklace Karen made for me. On one side is a great pocket that I can use to store the hexagons and/or papers; on the other side are two compartments: one for a thimble and one for small scissors. Isn't this the greatest invention? I'm planning on working on my hexagons tonight...and I can't wait to use the necklace!
Another thought on inspiration...a few months ago, shortly after I started blogging, I started an inspiration journal where I sort of "scrapbook" ideas I get from magazines. I cut out pictures of quilts, fabrics and linens, buttons, quotes and anything else I find inspiring or that might give me an idea for a future project. It's been a lot of fun and helps me remember ideas that I otherwise might have forgotten. Here's a sample of one of my (not completed) pages--I still have some empty spaces on this page to add more ideas.
