I don't know if it would help - try TAST - Take a Stitch on Tuesday - Look into Pin Tangle - Sharon gives the name of a stitch every Tuesday - gets fingers into use, even if only a line of the stitch given - from there sometimes ideas come and it is as small or a bit bigger as your mind and fingers work - many pictures of the same stitch on Stitchin Fingers - some samplers and some remarkable - no pressure to do anything - may get your fingers and mind in gear and then onwards. If not, a little enjoyment to look forward to every Tuesday that may take you out of the doldrums - worth a try - something to share if nothing else. This week - wheatear - can make a few little rabbits !!!!!!
Ditto!! After a hectic 6 months getting ready for my exhibition I am wallowing around a bit too BUT have given myself the task of idea doodling in my work book.......playing with colours etc and, after 3 days, have several good possibilities.
I personally am very disciplined and only ever have 2 projects on the go - one to do in the study(where its freezing now) and one to do in the evening in the warm watching ( listening??) to the tv.
The half finished ones..well choose one by one and finish them or put them away in a drawer so you cant see them!! It is very easy to gt overwhelmed and so befuddled that we cant focus.
Hope this helps
Hi Heather. I too am in one of those places right now also. I do alot of different things and always have any number of things I could be doing. So for now I am just going to go outside and draw. Sometimes drawing relaxes me and then the next day a will be excited about the thing I drew and will be ready to pick up that needle and thread. I also look at old stitch mag. to find some inspiration. And looking at others work on here helps also.
I agree entirely, you will benefit in the long run.
I find doing something physical gets the endorphins going and I can think create, sweep the path, vacuum the house(I can see your eyes rolling lol) or weed the garden.
