Quilting Needs

Urg I have been having motivational issues when it comes to setting up my sewing room at my new home.  I unpacked everything but didn't put any of it away...
Little update I guess:
I moved to a small town in western Kansas for a part time design gig at a plastic factory.  I am doing production work as well to keep up with the bills and such needs.  
It is an hour from a Walmart or theater.  
I have a lot of family in this area so that helps a lot with keep me sane!
We stayed with my grandparents for the first 5 months or so because there weren't able to find our own rental at first but finally found our own place.
 Another up side is that every Tuesday I quilt at one of the local churches.  It isn't one of my own but the church gets paid for us to hand quilt...Quilts?
I really enjoy these ladies but am worried about them finding out that I am a little weirder than they already know.
For Instance:
 I found this amazing artist Nina Paley recently who made this great piece about and would like to do something similar. 
Maybe using one these past pieces below. 
Any who we shall see if I get ran out of town on rail?
I am still very frustrated that I have still not found my audience YET!
 It this like a holy grail search to find people who enjoy and understand my work?

I think where this rant is going is I need to clean my sewing room so I express my creativity with through fabric before my head explodes...

Shark Eating Cat

I mainly added filters and college this together (the right one).  
It was a response to the t shirt a co worker wore and later seen on Pineapple Express,

Not a great day... My boyfriend adopted a kitten at from my grandparents.  He is the   runt and we think has problems with his legs so he can't jump.  It is currently an outdoor cat but we intend to make it an indoor cat when we get our own place...
I can't find him and I am terrified that a fox got him....

My heart isn't in anything...
I just keep praying he is gonna show up and is just lost.

Stripe Bag

So as a quilter I have lots of scraps from various projects...
I ended up with a lot of long think stripes that I kept for I didn't know why. 
Then I brought a knitting loom recently!
 Using the knitting loom I create this little bag I cut the old core of some thread as buttons.

I am A machine!

Since my recent unemployment I have been job searching & walling in my room. 
I have changed it up a little. 
I set up a crafts table and taken on some quilting projects!  
I found some cheap charm packs from Tuesday Mornings.
I got two and embarked on this quilt tops.
 I think the brown bit looks like a litte bat peeking out.
 I cut the 5 x5 squares in half & created these from
 I got them put together.  I didn't have any fabric for a good border.
I also am a little broke so I don't have the anything for backing  so this will be a top until further money ...

This was a one day project!

Unemployment disaster or fresh start?

I am now unemployed and more depressed as ever! 
 I have always enjoyed being a part of something!
I think that is why I would enjoy living at a commune.  
Don't get me wrong I enjoy technology and alone time.
Well here is week last week:
I have decide to take some time off time recording and blogging for the next few weeks in order to do some internal searching and figure out what to do with my new "opportunity."
