There's nothing different today. Any inspiration I might have had has vanished. Hm. That could be my topic: Inspiration and perspiration.
My world is about 100% inspiration, 50% confusion, and 50% perspiration. Yep, that adds up to 200%. I get inspired all the time. I see color and I want to dye it or knit or crochet in it. That goes on 24/7. I look, I want to dye. I see a lovely little demitasse cup, and I want those colors in my life. Please excuse the blurry pics; my tripod was on vacation.
How about paper napkins?
Or Elvis the Rooster?
Or the quilt the kids got me for a significant birthday?
Or a couple of very blurry kaleidoscope pics?
Or a pretty silk flower arrangement?
That';s a teensy bit of inspiration; believe me, it goes on all day. I live, eat and breathe color. I can almost taste it.
The other 100%:
Perspiration: Well you have to work at getting those colors right. some colors that look wonderful together in the real world, look pretty darn awful together in a skein of yarn or a garment. And designing is 90% perspiration and 10% inspiration, at least it is for me.
Confusion: Sometimes I get so carried away with color, that I can't decide what to do with it? This is especially true when I crochet. I get these ideas in my head, buy the yarn, come home, and then can't figure out where I want to begin.
I'll tell you one thing: I'm rarely bored! Because, if I get bored, I just start something new. And that, boys and girls, is why I have a gazillion project bags and yarns all over the joint!
Moonie - I hate being bored.
Scrabblequeen - Bordom! Why do you think I have so many projects? Sigh.
