Creative Flow

For a long time, I've been trying to think of something I can do to stir my creative flow. I use to crotchet and make personalized pillows. I haven't done these in a long time. I think it is because my life has become so busy that I don't feel I will have time for it. I've tried in the past and never completed anything. I became quite frustrated. It became more "work" to finish it which took the fun out of it.

Last night, I had another idea that I can do in time for winter. Teenagers like to wear hoods. I thought I could crotchet scarves with hoods on them. It shouldn't take too long to make and I can make them in lots of different colors. I can even vary the crotchet stitch to make it more interesting, or even knit a few of them! Perhaps, I can look through my supplies to see what I have to begin :). I don't even need a pattern! When I was younger, and had more time, I made blankets for all of my nieces and nephews, even my own children. They still use them today!

Well, sounds like a plan :). I will see what I can do with what I have already.

Thanks Lori. We will see how it goes. :) Your creativity always inspire me. I look at your work and I ask myself, "What can I do to make my life a bit more interesting?"

You are so good :). Happy crafting.
