With packing, moving, Justin being away for a month, and my obsession with getting the garden established in the new house, my sewing machine has been forlorn and abandoned. I get inspiration for a garment, then Jarvis or my tired body draws me away, and yet again it is left sitting gathering dust.
I finally bought myself a desk to replace the one Justin borrowed (stole), but I think part of the issue is that my new sewing area lack inspiration, it is just plain and out in the open. The white wall, a dirty window, and (honestly) a bit of a dumping ground for my sewing stash, all of this does nothing to inspire creativity.
In my head I keep thinking if I make the space more 'me', I will feel the desire to create. But the double conundrum is, I am not inspired to decorate the space as it has no personality.
However, true to the blogging world Jane at Fight Platform Living gave the nudge along to set up the machine and put it to work with this post. All I made is one cushion at the start of Jarvis's nap. But fingers crossed this is the first step back into my sewing obsession.
Any suggestions on how to turn a plain area into a creative zone, when your own creative energy is missing?
