    Help!!!

    I have spent the last two weekends puttering in my sewing room and just can't seem to get any inspiration for projects.

    I keep looking through books and on the web for ideas. I have projects to make - but seem to have a block. I can't get an idea or start anything.

    What do others do when you have a block?

    How do you start the creative juices flowing again?

    A\Suggestions are greatly appreciated!!

    Sometimes I just have to force myself to pick out something and just start sewing it... usually a smaller item :D:D:D

    Welcome to the group!

    Look through some of the pictures here and you will come away with more ideas than you can possibly accomplish. lol

    Join a swap. Whatever you end up doing, welcome.

    I usually force myself to do something...anything! And then again...sometimes I just let myself hang out with hubby and watch the tube! ;) You don't always have to be sewing, or at least that's what I tell myself!

    Maybe try something new to you?

    I certianly love the chocolate idea.

    I do the swaps. I have finished my April Doll Quilt and signed up for the May Doll Quilt nd the Table Runner Swap, but am having trouble getting inspired.

    I keep charm square packs and leftover batting squares on hand for times like this - I'll pick them up and make coasters. No thinking, just sewing - but seeing something accomplished, even something small, seems to spur me on.
