studio details : fabric as far as the eye can see

Wow! This week seems to have flown by, I can't believe it's desk thursday already!

Getting back into working with fabric and thread has been a bit of a slow start for me. I did have a wee burst of inspiration and managed a few designs after this post, but then I seemed to run into a brick wall. One that felt almost a hundred feet high! I'm sure you all know what it's like!? You have deadlines looming, bills that need paying, work that really should have been done yesterday and no matter what you do the ideas just don't flow. The only thing you can do is walk away from it, pick up your hook and crochet away the stress.


Then a couple of days ago I read this post on paper 'n' stitch, and I think to myself 'it's a long time since I've kept a sketchbook'. And I mean a real sketchbook and not just a note book or journal. A real sketchbook where you doodle, play and experiment with ideas and techniques, not just a little book where you quickly note down ideas just so you don't forget them, or fasten in bits of stray paper so they don't get lost.

But then that little nagging voice in your head chirps up to say 'you haven't got time, just get on with some work'. So I think to myself 'Right! I shall tidy my desk and rearrange my fabrics'. That always clears my head and I always find a forgotten fabric that triggers my creative thoughts...

Hmmm, still nothing...

So I call up a lovely friend for a good chat and she tells me just what I need to hear 'Do it! Go and play, experiment with fabric and thread, forget the rules, clash colours and textures, improvise and let the moment guide you!'

So for the next few days I am going to be happily sitting at my desk with some good tunes, plenty of tea and chocolate, and a needle and thread in hand working on my 'fabric sketchbook'. Because as Brittni put it 'sketching can be just as important, if not more important than finished works'.

If you made it to the end of this ramble, thank you! I hope you are all having a fabulous creative day and if you are feeling a wee bit stuck give yourself a break and indulge yourself!

See you all in a few days with a crochet update and maybe a peek of some of my experiments!
