There’s so much creativity to inspire out here in blogland. Lately I find that I am spending more time looking than doing, buying than trying. At the end of the day I’m frustrated with my accumulation of patterns and fabric and UFO’s. I’m beginning to feel disconnected from who I am as a quilter/designer and more like a consumer who keeps filling her shopping cart to the max, frantically trying to achieve that shopper ‘high’. Something has to give.
Taking a ‘vacation’ from blogging is a calculated risk. I’d miss all of you and your wondrous projects. But I recognize that I have to go home again to find me, to rediscover my own strengths and weaknesses. To rekindle my own personal fiber joy. I’m going to post randomly. I’ll still stalk. I’m putting a self-imposed limit on fabric spending too.
It seems like a very good place to be.
