Ideas in my head

A thought is the mother of all inventions.
Not that I invent novelties, but merely design ideas I had never done before, and put my personal spin on them. When it comes to sewing or crocheting there is hardly anything that hasn't been done before. Often I carry ideas in my head for months or years, sometimes they keep me awake at night. Begging that I finally get started.
Lately I had some time to realize some of these thoughts and it wonderfully frees up my head.
Some new projects work out just fine, but some don't turn out the way I had envisioned them and I can scratch them off my mental list.

I wanted to make a patchwork skirt entirely sewn with scraps, no fabric yardage cut up. It took me a while (2 years?) to finally put this thought into action and I finished this plus-sized aline hippie patchwork skirt last week. These skirts have been sewn by people all through the decades, but yet each and everyone is a unique piece of labor.
I am very happy that mine already has found a good home (means it sold this morning).

Along with new skirts I have started on some crochet/ fabric hybrid tops, another idea I had lingering in my head for some time now. And large hobo bags.
Now all I need is a bit of time.

We have returned from Sioux City, Iowa and Sid's mum is doing much better now. She still is in the hospital though.

Going out of town without internet access.

Raspberry Sherbet

Now why in the world would I title a blog post raspberry sherbet?
I have never posted about my lunch or desserts, why start now?

Well, I thought it sounded nicer than "Who cares?"....Confused?
I feel like blogs may be overdone, a matter of the past as almost everyone has one. I don't know. I have stopped leaving links on various sites, and traffic has died down, or at least the number of comments.
Hoping to find inspiration and motivation to write about really interesting and meaningful topics for my blog again.
So I let you know today I have eaten raspberry sherbet three nights in a row now.

Now this wasn't so redundant, was it? Considering how many blog posts about lunches and meals are out there.
On a lighter note: Happy Easter!@
(Check out my website and Etsy shop to see all the new tams and skirts listed, thanks a bunch)
