Overwhelmed and Moving Toward Being Creative

Have you felt so over whelmed that you just want to crawl back in bed and play Scarlet? You know, "worry about it tomorrow". It's Tuesday and I feel like it's Monday... I'm sitting in my Studio, finally, after running the morning errands, needing to input the receipts from our purchases from vacation and this past weekend and desperately wanting to get my hands in my fabric and create a new quilt. Good things come to those who wait, I know, but I really need some "quilt therapy" today. It has been over two weeks since I've had a chance to enjoy my studio!

With that said, I had a great surprise yesterday. One of my Blog Readers gave me a "Favorite Blog Award". I'm told "Liebster" is a German word for "favorite" or "beloved" and have received this Liebster Award from Betty at the Arts and Crafters Supply Community.

The idea is to link back to the blog who picked you and then add give the award to 5 of your favorite blogs with less than 200 followers.  Then they can do the same.  We of course are looking to promote each others blogs and get more followers.  So join in the fun to help promote not only your blog but help others too.

If you visit each blog and follow each one you like the numbers will increase dramatically and you will have made numerous new friends and contacts!

Without further ado, here are my favorites:

So, I'm off to clear off my desk, find my studio table and start on a few new quilts! The 2011 International Quilt Festival is coming up and the Texas SAQA members are putting together another display of 9x12 Art Quilts and this year they are going to be for sale! 

The SAQA Benefit Auction starts on September 12, 2011, so click here to see the mini-quilts up for auction and don't forget to bid!

Have a Creative Day!
