It's a long time since I posted anything I have made. For the last few weeks I have been creatively stuck. Part of this is due to lack of time, and part of it is due to lack of inclination. It's not like there isn't a list of stuff I'd like to be getting on with, it's just that I seem to currently be incapable of getting on with it!
It is always reassuring to see other bloggers write they aren't getting as much done as they'd like too - a bit easy sometimes to compare yourself to people who seem to casually knock together a quilt or a purse every couple of days and despair!
Anyway.....I tried to get unstuck this weekend and got the watercolours out - there are so many beautiful colours in the fallen leaves round about. It's pretty rough but it makes me happy to be doing stuff again.
Annekata posted this fantastic lecture from John Cleese about creativity - the brief gist of it is that you need Space, Time, Confidence and Humour to be creative. If I can make space and time, try not to see imperfection as failure, and keep a sense of humour about my rather pitiful rate of production in comparison with other people, then maybe I'll have something worth posting soon.
In the meantime I'm really grateful to other bloggers for keeping it real!
