Desktop inspiration

~A bed without a quilt is like a sky without stars~
I am a bric-a-brac, knick-knack person. I like little goodies and they often inspire me. Thus, I crowd my desk with them while I am working! I have my favorite colored threads, some of my most loved books, my favorite pictures, and touching gifts given to me by friends and family.

Oh, and I also have two large Scrappy Balls of Goodness!
Aren't they just fun! Who wouldn't want to work with those little fellas for inspiration?
As all "good" quilters know, you must cut off your selvage as well as level up your fabric, which leaves a lot of long, very thin, fabric strings. These Scrappy Balls are made up of all of those so-called "useless" fabric scraps. And once they are all tied into lovely Scrappy Balls, they can be knit or crocheted into TONS of different projects!
They make take HOURS to tie all the scraps together, but I think it's well worth it! :)
Well, anyway my friends, I am going to settle down to do some quilt designing! Thanks goodness I have these Scrappy Balls to keep me happy! Goodnight all!
