Don't you love it when you have a good idea? Yeah. . . me too!!!
My latest idea came to me while I was brainstorming on how to shove myself out of a creative slump. Well, creative slump is really a misnomer. It was actually a productivity slump. sighhhh, yes, its true . . . I got lazy and I had the hardest time jump starting myself back to my productive self!
My idea? I rented my friend's studio for a long weekend and gave myself a mini sewing retreat! I schlepped all my stuff over there and sewed 10 hours a day. Now I know what you're thinking . . . doesn't she have her own studio?
Well yes, but it does come complete with all the familiar distractions. At Sandy's studio, it only had distractions designed for her; for me, there was only pure sewing.
And boy did I sew. I wanted to get the next idea in series started. Now the series is on curves, but after I designed this one, I think I'm going to have to rename the series since this one is very linear. But still you can see its part of the series. I started the retreat with designing it - thinking that I would make big pieces and gradate the colors. What I ended up doing was playing with color and value again since - well - I love playing with color and value.
You wouldn't know it from me getting only a quarter done - but there is a ton of piecing in this. I really like where its going.
So What have been up to creatively?
