But my biggest work in progress right now is the apron I need to make for the Autumn Sassy Apron Swap. It's not even a work in progress yet, more like a concept in progress. I have a pattern for the apron, but it's just the fabric I'm struggling with. I have to make a pot holder too, but that will be easy peasy once I get the fabric problem sorted. I have both a Lincraft and a Spotlight within spitting distance of me but their fabrics are just totally uninspiring. No nice colours. Dull. Boring. Poor quality.
With my new book on hand, I've even contemplated printing my own autumn designs onto fabric.
Way too complicated for what I'm doing, but still inspirational. By Jen Spragia.
Or even embroidering (something which I haven't practiced for about 5 years)!

Maybe I need another trip to Patchwork on Central Park. Or I could make my own fabric. I had the idea of playing with those make-your-own iron-on transfers.
But I'm getting a little desperate. I have two weeks to find fabric/design inspiration! I think I might be spending the next couple of weeks doing little test runs of things, playing with ideas. Always fun to pass the time (what little of it I have right now!).
