Now I'd like to add my own tip for re-igniting your creativity: Go to Quilt Retreats!
|Bernie, ready to roll|
2. You acheive Focus and Momentum. Before you know it you've gotten it done. I always like to bring a variety of things to work on, including some things I've been putting off because I simply don't feel like working on them. In the stimulus of the retreat setting, these projects seem to move forward by themselves. For instance, last weekend I machine quilted two quilts, including the dreaded Chicken Quilt I'd been putting off forever!
3. You get to see what others are doing, including other styles of work, and are able to study their process.
...and see the possibilities in everything else.
Not to mention the camaraderie, getting to know new people, and spending quality time with the ones you already know.
So I ask again, do you retreat? What do you like the best about going to retreats? What do you get out of it? Did I mention you don't have to cook? I'd love to hear your experiences, good bad or otherwise!
Now a sneak preview to a project I worked on, but won't show in its completion until after it gets to its new home.
