Brummmm, brummmm. Turning the key and hoping to jolt the creative spirit into starting. And whatever car analogies pop into mind.
I wrote here about how I am finding it hard to be creative at the moment. So I thought I would tell you about a few things that are helping.
Sewing with kids - I do work with children and their creativity is inspiring.
Sew from a book. I bought this book and have made a few things from it. I have just made a little bunny for my neice's birthday. Sometimes just sewing helps.
Stringing beads - finding different colour combinations is fun and can jump-start (here I go again!) the process. Also, I now have a nice bead necklace to wear.
(The blue shirt is my work shirt - just so you don't think it is my choice!)
Or sew from the web. I love making these Kanzashi flowers.I used this great tutorial and would love to buy the book.
So here's hoping all this activity will encourage me, once more to drive along the road of my own designs. (Sighs).
