I'm still in wrap up mode at work, lots of report writing and performance review discussions. For some reason that's put me off sewing when I get home at night. I've been more inclined to curl up in the recliner with a good book in the evenings. This week was even worse than last week in terms of wanting to find stitching time.
Only three days of stitching this week. The weekend was my saving grace. I spent all of Sunday afternoon stitching away. I did a bit of pinning this evening so I can sit down and stitch up a few blocks the next time I have a chance to get into the sewing room. Drama Teen has a swim meet tonight and I'm on tap to be a timer. I doubt we get home in time for me to do much in the sewing room, so it will probably be Wednesday before I have a chance to get to any stitching.
Though I've not been sewing much, I have been using the time in the recliner to give some thought to this month's fostering creativity theme of making/using mood boards. It's common in the interior design industry, many who commented had not seen them employed by quilters. I found a few quilter blogs that explored their use for making quilts.
Blossom Heart Quilts did a series of mood boards focused on quilting. Those included fabrics that fit a theme, quilts in specific colors, etc. She was linking up with Mood Board Monday over at Life as We Know it. Some of her recent themes have been floral, metallic, taking flight and neon. After checking out several of their posts, I've got a few ideas on how a mood board might work for me.
More on mood boards next week. Now it's time to head out the door to get DT to swim practice. I've got just enough time to add Mr. Linky so you can share how your stitching went this last week.
