How to get Inspired

There's no surefire way to get inspiration but there are things you can do to obtain that spark of creativity. Most of these tips require you to step away from whatever it is you're working on. You've been staring and thinking about your sewing project or quilt pattern since you woke up, it's time to give your brain a break!

1. Go for a walk, anywhere. You don't need to be in the woods, a park, or farm to get inspired. Wherever you are, stand up, shake it off, and walk it off. Stop thinking about how to rearrange your quilt fabric and give your husband a hug, walk around the yard or neighborhood. not only is this great exercise, but it'll clear your mind!

2. Visit a store. I'm kind of a shopaholic but sometimes I just need to drink some coffee and walk around stores. Check out some fabric or clothing. Laugh at what some folks are wearing as high fashion. Again, get your mind off of the project! Look at colors, textures, and patterns.

3. Can't get up and just walk away to another location? Browse online, either on your phone or computer, you can find lovely things to look at. Check out blogs on photography, fabric, or fine arts. Look for apps, like Pinterest, to help inspire you with imagery.
