I've been trying to decide if My Guy's intent to drive that car until it's not drive-able anymore is inspiring or not. It has certainly inspired Drama Teen to express an interest in riding her bike to the high school next fall so that she doesn't have to be seen in that "clunker". Collecting inspiration is this month's fostering creativity theme, so I've been thinking a lot about what I collect that inspires me in my quilting. I mentioned quilting books and fabric as my biggest inspirational collections in last week's post. I'm not a big collector of much else. Would you consider the blogs I follow in Google Reader as a collection? They are another big source of inspiration. I see how other's use colors and fabrics, what patterns they use. Quilt alongs are another great source of not only inspiration, but motivation to work on a new project (not that I need a lot of motivation to start something new). Not only do I get inspiration from my blog "collection", I get encouragement and friendship as well. I think those are important components of inspiration too.
I was inspired to start a new project this week. I've not done much with it as yet, but it was a nice reward after the binding binge I've been on for the last few weeks.
Seven out of seven is an excellent week. Drama Teen's summer stuff is during the day, so it's easier to find time during the week to climb the stairs to the sewing room in the evenings. Of course the fact that it doesn't get dark until 8:40 or so helps too.
Were you inspired to sew this last week? Or did inspiration take you in a different direction or maybe abandon you completely? No matter what the case is, Mr Linky is set up below for you to share how things went.
