Need New Motivation

I have finished all my unfinished projects and am wanting to start something new.  I know I have gotten into a rut and now is the time for me to jump in and try something new.  The only applique quilt I’ve done is the Sunbonnet Sue too many years ago.  I am now looking thru my books to see what I have.  Any suggestions?  Hubby is planning on vacation and I will be spending a lot of time in the car(trip is from Glacier Nat. Park in Montana to Arizona) and I like to have something to do while riding.  I figure I can cut all the pieces before I go and put each block in a baggie and in a month’s time have a few done.

I decided one thing I needed were some new scissors and I fell I fell in love with them.  Stainless steel tailor shears and are so light and sharp.  I usually purchase Singer or Fiskers.  These were on sale and then Christmas in July another 20% off.  The shears started out to be $88.22 on sale for 74.99 then 20% off was under 59.99 plus tax.  I then got some applique scissors and spent less than the original price of scissors.  I am one happy camper.  I got these from my sewing machine store and they will replace them if anything goes wrong.  I like this.

Where do you get most of your supplies?  Box store? Quilt store?

Any suggestions on a pattern for next project?

Have a great day.

    Road trips are fun and yours sounds like a long one. I don’t know when you are leaving, but Jacquelynne Steve’s free BOM will start on August 6th. This year’s wall hanging is called Save The Bees and has two applique blocks, a pieced block and a hexie block. If you are interested, check out http://www.jacquelynnesteves.com. I will be a featured blogger again and will be mixing applique and embroidery.
