And now for something completely different Day 5 2KCBWDAY5

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.

Isn't it wonderful to be so involved in creativity all the time? Boredom doesn't have space in my life, either.
