Is it really the last Tuesday in April? Wow, that was fast. That means today it's time to wrap up this month's fostering creativity theme of "become an observer". This one was a hard topic to write on. I didn't find many references about the link between observation and creativity for quilters. That forced me to ask how do I use observation when selecting/designing a pattern then selecting the fabrics to use. In today's world, it's not hard to find inspiration. It's just a click away on the Internet. The opportunity to observe color trends and techniques for making piecing easier and more accurate are widespread. I don't have much time to cruise Pinterest, but I do visually devour any of my quilting magazines when they arrive. The opportunity to "attentively regard" is pretty easy in the quilting world.
I've not been doing a lot of observing lately since I've got a May deadline to finish up several quilts. I did a good job of at least getting into the sewing room each day this last week.
So 7 out of 7 this week makes up for the just 4 days last week. I'm down to 2 quilts which need piecing, one that's ready to go out for quilting and 2 that need the binding. Definite progress.
How did your week go? Did you find some time to sew/knit/craft? Or was it one of those weeks were the rest of your life required your undivided attention? Link up below and share what's going on (or not) in your sewing room.
