I sometimes think I don’t know when a good thing turns into TOO MUCH of a good thing.
I had fun making the Painted Egg Bunting. And my 7 and 9-year-old girls had fun with that one too. It was a good thing.
I was having fun with egg-shaped banners so I pulled out some more fabric and kept making banners.
Have your read the book The Golden Grinder? Lord Gur didn’t know how to make a good thing stop! Maybe I’m a little like that sometimes?? 🙂
Anyway I copied off a couple different sizes of egg patterns, grabbed some fabric from my Stacks of Fabric and started creating.
I stitched and created and pretended I didn’t have anything else to do – like laundry, cleaning, or cooking. Blithely sewing a fine seam – no strawberries and cream though – not the right season.
And then I proceeded to get creative with places to hang each egg banner. If I continue we will soon have an egg banner maze to wade through.
Nothing was sacred in my quest of banner making. This vintage trim was quite gleefully pulled from the bedding it had adorned for years. It’s happier with a new life anyhow I am sure.
Part of the vintage bedspread the trim came from was roped into becoming one of the eggs in this banner. It’s quite happy with its new life too.
Do you sometimes get carried away in a creating frenzy? Do you need to tell yourself to ‘Stop and Stay’ as Lord Gur needed someone to tell the magic grinder?
There is one more set of fabric eggs cut out and waiting by the sewing machine to be transformed into a banner. I know those eggs are wondering if the creating frenzy is going to fade before they get their chance to shine.
Happy Thursday and Happy Creating!
