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 don’t regret it.
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. I’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. I’m tempted to try to make something else instead of submitting this, but I’m not sure that’s realistic. I think it’s fine but I wish it were better.
I tried felting angora yesterday, as an experiment, and it was a disaster.
I’ve almost finished my first Halloween sock! 🎉 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. I’m not an influencer or anything like that.) It was a helpful read. I really like the part about having faith in your ideas.
