Waiting for IT to come back...

It has been a while, but I have been busy doing lots of stuff, mainly cooking, and am waiting for the creative spark to come back. I feel that I am in some kind of creative limbo. This has happened to me before, many times, but it does come back - so I know that it is not lost forever.

In the meantime I am getting a little knitting done and wishing I could go out to garden. It is way too early here do do any gardening, but the weather is just so beautiful. Mother Nature is just waiting to pounce on us New Englanders, I know it.

This morning I woke up to such a beautiful sunrise! Here's a photo so you can enjoy it too.

I just finished tidying up my work room and now it is off to do something else - at least I am busy, busy and not just sitting like a lump :)

Working in the background :)

I have been doing a lot of stuff, but not saying a word. In between working on the house, I have quilted two small pieces and this one is basted and ready to quilt on too. I have another in the to-be-appliqued stage, too.
The work on this Trillium was interesting - as I have recently given myself permission (don'tcha hate to have to do that) to use my inks and paints to enhance the colors. It has been lots of fun and has incorporated my painting and drawing with fabric. The best of all worlds!

Lately it feels very spring like and I have spring fever and want to be OUT since there aren't any bugs to bite me. I do like this in between season best. I get to walk around in the woods and check on what lives where and pick up nice rocks for the garden - stuff like that.

I continuously lurk and keep my eyes on everyone too! My BF has just stopped working all the time and I am looking forward to some good quilting/creating time soon.
