Feeling creative

Diane (my mother in law) is coming to Dallas in a couple of weeks. Seeing as how the next couple of weekends are pretty crazy (Memorial Day and the following weekend is Robin's Wedding!!), I thought I would start the horrid process of cleaning house a little early. So today, I tackled the "studio" which is actually just the second bedroom in our apartment that I intended to use in a creative manor that has actually become the nasty junk room. I unearthed a lot of half started projects and really got the urge to create.

I started a project tonight while watching Jericho with Drew that I am excited to see how it turns out. I took a ton of Drew's old band t-shirts and I am cutting squares out of them to make a "quilt." I think it will be really neat if I can just keep with it til I finish. I have a bit of free time at work this week, and since my sewing machine is already there, I thought I would do a bit. I have a 40% off coupon at JoAnn's, so I can go buy some batting and fabric for the backing this week, and maybe actually finish a project?!? Wouldn't that be weird?

I also had a great idea for a painting that I have been working on for months, so that might actually get finished here in the next few weeks too! I'll post photos when this project is finally starting to look like something!
