So its not secret that the past year has been a bit of a challenge…. divorce, moving etc. It really takes it toll on how creative you are. I have always been the type of person that takes her time with all of my projects… thinking that each one is a masterpiece. A creative rut is no place to be! So how do you get out of it. Many of you have given great advice in the past…. step away, work on a simple project, knit or crochet etc…. I listened to this podcast on my way to teach in Vermont and I believe this is gonna help.
Take a listen and let me know in the comments what you think.
I found the study on the pottery class most interesting!
With this in mind, I came home from that trip with a renewed energy that I just have to create. Whether it is designing an original quilt, quilting customer quilts, my own quilts or even grabbing a pattern so I can work on something where I don’t have to think as much.
I decided to use a very old jelly roll in my limited stash…. and make this cute quilt by Cluck Cluck Sew called Pixel Chain.
How cute is that??? I cut all my fabric in a day and now it seems like its taking me forever to sew the blocks. I have 5 done… that’s it. lol . but at least the directions are there… I just have to follow them.
So with this podcast in my ear…. I am going to see how many projects I can get done by the end of the year. I have a couple UFO’s that I am close to finishing so that should boost my numbers. But the goal here is to not over think….. I suffer from Analysis Paralysis….. anyone else??
Who wants to join me??? Let’s see how productive we can be.
