I've finally got my Mojo Back!!!

Its been a while - and when I say a while I mean MONTHS but I think I finally have my sewing mojo back!  Its always been hanging around a little bit, but I haven't felt that burning desire to get upstairs to my sewing room and create something for a while.  I think a combination of summer holidays - the kids and I have spent almost 60 nights up at our trailer since May, and still have a few more nights to go before school starts back up again - and just being away from the chaos of my house has left me wanting to go back upstairs and work on something.  They say absence makes the heart grow fonder and I think that is totally whats happening with me, when I was at the trailer I couldn't quilt because I didn't ahve my machine with me!  Now that I'm at home I have actually got a an entire crib sized quilt done in a few nights!  Too bad I can't show it since its going to be a gift in a few weeks but after the baby shower I'll be sure to post lots of pictures of it.

I CAN however post some pictures from our Calgary Modern Quilt Guild meeting from tonight.  We have some amazingly talented members and I am always inspired when I see what everyone else is working on.

This quilt is a charity quilt for Flood Victims of the Calgary 2013 Flood:

Another charity quilt for the Calgary Flood Victims:

One more Charity Quilt!

One of our members Katrina made this with a Quick Curve Ruler, I MUST get one of those rulers!

Katrinas wonderful Tula Pink Blocks

Another quilt of Katrinas - she is my hero!  I have no idea how she produces so many quilts and projects but I want some of her mojo!

I LOVE this quilt that Rebecca did - its so happy and fun.

A super fun quilt from another Rebecca in our guild.  The yellows are amazing!

Probably my favourite quilt of the night, I adore the Constellation fabric line and love it even more now that I have seen it in person.

Lastly we did a potholder exchange and this is what I came home with!  I am super happy with it and almost don't want to use it since its so awesome!

And because I am so AWESOME - I totally forgot to take a picture of the potholder that I made for the swap!  It was pretty cool and totally not something that I normally would have made, that being said I am looking forward to making a few more one of these days!

Thank you so much for sticking with me while I took my hiatus, hopefully I'll be back soon!
