Do you ever get to that place where you are just officially blocked? I am frustrated with my projects, irritated that I don't have endless money to buy new fabric, full of creative ideas that I can't seem to get on paper, and completely overwhelmed by the whole thing. Every time I pull something out of my closet its just not exactly what I was looking for. Can you tell by the state of my sewing room?
I get so inspired watching all of my blogger friends create amazing things, but I feel like I just don't have enough hours in the day. I am my most creative in the morning.....but every morning I find myself at my desk at work, instead of in my sewing room (this dilemma is the source of my frustration). Lately I have been traveling so much on the weekends that I can barely form a thought, much less start a project.
Even though I am completely stuck creatively, I still keep taking on new projects. Isn't that the definition of insanity? And, I totally wish someone would just give my fabric to create with. Who doesn't though, right? As a quilter, there is always more time than money. Story of our lives I suppose.
I am currently considering the possibility of turning a few of my ideas into patterns. This is literally the most daunting idea I have come up against yet. I thought starting a blog was hard, it was nothing compared to this. I am literally entering into unknown territory with no idea of how the end product will be received.
My hope is that my handstitched class (which started today!) will push me out of the box I am stuck in. Although the class isn't as much about quilting as handstitching, once you get that inspirational boost, it is all you need. Today my sewing room will stay a mess, tomorrow is a new day.
