Creativity doesn't follow a schedule. You can't force an idea to present itself. Why is it that some of our best ideas come to us when we're in the shower? Driving a monotonous turnpike? Or even while relaxing with the family on vacation?
I think the mind needs space. Getting a new business off the ground, raising kids, keeping a house together, and trying to take care of your own health leaves not much time to even think. Ideas need room to evolve and mature. That happens when all the other things on our plates are put on pause.
What came to me during my recent lakeside stay with the family? Judging by the last blog post dated January, that would be this page right here. I have ideas for this space! It won't all be about Stitchery (though you should really check it out if you haven't already!), but it will be about resources I've discovered this past year that I want to share with you. Projects I've completed (I've tackled some seriously challenging sewing this year). Classes I'm teaching. Sewing fun. And of course, thoughts and photos of life here in Rhode Island.
Thank you to those who have followed along for years! Welcome to those just finding me here!
As co-owner of Stitchery in Portsmouth, RI, I teach sewing classes to children and adults. Welcome to my blog Dancing Threads RI.
