The Doldrums of Creativity: A YOP Update

View from our driveway. We live here! ๐Ÿ‚๐Ÿ

I had so many creative plans for this staycation. Then, at some point last week, I stopped doing anything productive. I read an entire book in one sitting, and I hiked. I donโ€™t regret it.

Felting

Haze Over Maize, Granville 2020: wool and cotton floss

I finished a piece for the upcoming group art show. I was trying to skip the photo stage and create something from inspiration. I spent a lot of time stitching on it. I enjoyed the process as it was very meditative, but am not thrilled with the product. Iโ€™m not sure what I would do differently. It is too big for my barnwood shadow box frames, so I had to order a new one. Iโ€™m tempted to try to make something else instead of submitting this, but Iโ€™m not sure thatโ€™s realistic. I think itโ€™s fine but I wish it were better.

I tried felting angora yesterday, as an experiment, and it was a disaster.

Knitting

Iโ€™ve almost finished my first Halloween sock! ๐ŸŽ‰ And I have cast on almost all the October things.

Today this blog post about The Doldrums of Creativity was in my inbox. (FYI When I share things, I do not get compensated in any way. Iโ€™m not an influencer or anything like that.) It was a helpful read. I really like the part about having faith in your ideas.

This has been a Year of Projects Update. You can read my original list here. You can find out more about the group here.

Blogville Knitters Skype today at 1PM Eastern! Then my kids will be here for tofu Sloppy Joeโ€™s and Nightmare Before Christmas.

My mums did not disappoint this year.
