Since it is a new month, there is a new fostering creativity theme to discuss. June's creativity theme is "collecting inspiration". Like last month's theme of exploring other interests, collecting inspiration is something most of us do readily (fabric, patterns, books, rulers). What do you collect that fires up your creativity? What makes you want to make a quilt in those colors or using that shape? I'd have to say my biggest source of inspiration that I collect a lot of is fabric. How can I feature this print? How do I put those colors together? Those questions will make me reach for my quilting books or have me firing up the computer to play around in EQ.
Not a lot of inspiration going on in my sewing room. I'm still in "finish up" mode. I've got the binding on three of the five quilts that were supposed to have been completed last month. Just two more left. The OSU quilt was finished on Sunday after spending most of last week was spent attaching the binding.
Last night I paid the cost of not sleeping well on Sunday night. I went to bed early, so no stitching. Even so, 6 days were dedicated to stitching down all that binding. That was definitely a much better week than the 3 days I managed the week before.
How are you doing in finding time to stitch? In the US it's finally warmed up, so many are gardening and catching up on yard work. The kids are out of school, so that may make finding 15 minutes to sit and stitch a bit tough. Link up and share how your late spring (or late fall for the down under crowd) stitching season is going.
