Its hard being a stitchy creative type sometimes...isn't it.
Its hard to have confidence in your products.
Its hard to have confidence in your abilities.
Its hard to have confidence in your style.
Sometimes lovely readers its just a little bit hard. i'm sure you clever people have deduce
d i'm lacking in the confidence department at the moment.
I'm sure i'll get over it...but right now instead of sewing through fabric i feel like i'm sewing through mud.
Any tips on getting out of this 'highly interesting' (i think not) funk would be greatly appreciated.

To combat the horrible melancholy tone of this post here are some pictures of Charley Harpers work....which i like you?

  1. I went through this with crochet a while back. I was all over the place and not finishing anything and not making anything good. Step back. Don't do anything creative for a day - in fact, ban yourself from doing it. Don't even read about it. After a while you will get fed up and that may just kick start the urge to start again and regain creativity. Hard to do if you have deadlines etc, but it will help you to get your 'craft mojo' back. Good luck.

  2. what a lovely post :)
    I adore it!!
