2012 is not without its challenges but it has been a lovely fresh start.
And to kick it all off, I'll share with you my second ever quilt made for my first ever grandchild! What?! Grandchild? But I am in my early 30s with two little boys . . . true. I am blessed to be step-mother to three. Step-friends really. The eldest is expecting his first son in April. So I thought I would sew with love and abandon, as much as a newbie can and this is the end result!
|*sings* "one of these pins is doing his own thing"|
Tres pleased with myself. During the making of this quilt something happened. A little tiny light of creative inspiration that has been locked away, held firmly by years of negative internal dialogue . . . shone a little brighter. A ray of it has escaped and is filling my mind with ideas and inspiration.
To the seasoned crafter, this may sound a little pathetic or overly dramatic. But that is how it may be for you and not how it is for me.
Being creative is fun and sadly addictive. Another thing to balance but factoring it in to the day-to-day is challenging and rewarding.
How do you manage it?
