Where has all my inspiration gone? Wouldn't one think I could find something to spur me on to be creative after I'd reviewed stashes of supplies and previously-made items?
This flu bug is finally winding down and I think I want to do some sewing - notice I used the word, "think". It's not as if I'm planning a craft show, anticipating a gift-giving holiday, or needing anything for my home at the moment. It just seems like such a waste to have so many fabrics and patterns to choose from, yet not have the drive to do anything with them. In the loft of my cabin I already have two or three plastic totes filled with handmade items, but most of them are seasonal decorations. Although I love fabric tote bags, I have more than I can use at one time. Cats are a favorite crafting subject, but why make stuffed ones when I enjoy the real thing every day of my life?
I was browsing through some photos and found a few things that give me inspiration, like old sewing notions, the crafting corner in my cabin, stacks of fabric, and a few of my own handmade projects. You can click on any photo to enlarge it. Maybe some of these will prod me to DO something creative this week.
What do you do when inspiration temporarily abandons you? This is a subject I'm re-visiting, I know, but I need some input here. I'd be grateful if you'd please share your thoughts.
