I’ve decided to try to write more, to be here more. I really like writing about sewing and sharing my thoughts, ideas and projects with you, but sometimes it’s a bit hard to get inspired. What can I write about that someone else hasn’t already covered? With so much information out there, it’s a bit hard to come up with something that’s new. I don’t enjoy writing repetitive blather about subjects that have been covered a thousand times. I want to share knowledge with you that’s actually useful. I want you to feel like you’re learning something. That’s not to say that I won’t still post fun little tutorials and share bits of my life here and there, but for the most part, I am excited to write when I feel like this an educational space. Teaching is most satisfying to me when I know I’m sharing something with someone that they haven’t heard or seen before, so I want to be better about that here as well, not just in person. This could probably be an entire blog post on it’s own, but I’ll save that for another day.

As I was trying to decide what to cover today, I realized that my sewing room is currently full of pieces of inspiration. Can you guess what I’ve been staring at?

I have paper next to me that is currently completely full of ideas. You’re about to learn more about plaid than you ever thought you could know! I’ll  need a few days to get some writing done, but I’m really excited to get you ready for a close inspection of your wardrobe and fabric stash next week!

I can’t tell you how much I’m excitedly nerding out right now. PLAAAID!

    Amy, I came across you on Craftsy yesterday. I have so blah about sewing lately, no motivation whatsoever but I saw your post about using up your stash. You wouldn’t believe how much that energized me. Today I rearranged my sewing area and moved it in front of the large dining room window where I have lots of sun light most hours do the day. I couldn’t stand to be in the area where I did have it. Even with my bright sewing lamp on it was still depressing. I spent about three hours moving my tables, machines, dusting and vacuuming. Tomorrow I plan on starting out with a small project to get my creative vibes moving. Thank you for your inspiration. Earline

    • I am SO happy to hear that, Earline! I think rearranging your sewing space is one of the most invigorating things you can do. I know I’ve been eyeing my own and thinking about a new layout. I am really glad to hear that you were inspired to create again. I’d love to see your space if you’d like me to it! Thanks for letting me know. 🙂

    I have some beautiful Pentleton wool plaid that I have had for 20 years. I would love to make something out of it stylish and classic!

    • Well after next week, which will be “Plaid Week” here on the ole’ blog, you’ll know what kind of plaid it is and know the best way to cut it out to match it up correctly. I’m excited for next week! 🙂

    I love plaid too, Amy. It is something indescribable, something that reminds me about my childhood….
    My sewing room? Oh boy, it is everywhere in the house! Love my DH for his patience. LOL

    • I’m not quite sure what it is that makes me love plaid so much. I think it’s a Pacific Northwest thing… it seems to say “I’m cozy, come sit by this fire and have a hot cocoa.”
      And my sewing room is slowly seeping out everywhere too. I need to reel it back in! My shelves and closet have quickly become a mess again. It’s maybe time for an honest studio tour soon! Eek!
