The valances got finished tonight and now I have pictures of the finished quilt as well as the valances. This gives me a real sense of accomplishment to be finishing things. It also motivates me to continue on with self directed creative work. I am starting to get ideas about designing new quilts for the walls and need to put some sketches down on paper. Some of my best thinking occurs while driving and I have been doing a lot of that lately. Pages of loosely drawn thumbnail sketches are a great way to sort out and compare a lot of different ideas. Usually I use either a sketchbook or computer paper. If the design lends itself to the computer I still sketch on paper first. The touch of hand to paper with pen or pencil activates a different part of your brain and thought process than hand to mouse. Working in a variety of ways keeps your work fresh and your wellspring of creativity overflowing. This is my 50th blog post.
