    Just out of curiosity, when are you most inspired or eager to create?

    For me it is about an hour after I get up in the mornings (which is when I am leaving for work!! :evil: ), and right before I go to sleep at night... which is just as frustrating!! :roll: At these times I want to call in sick or stay up all night (then call in sick :lol: ) just so I can sew!! Alas, I am a responsible person, so I do what I am supposed to do, & pray for rain on Saturdays!!! :lol:

    I hear about people who wake up in the middle of the night to sew :shock: and others who can only sew on pretty days. So, I was just curious about the members here.

    I am most inspired when I get home from work. I've had all day to think about fabric and quilt blocks and ways to do things, and I can't wait to get started. Unfortunately, my hubby has this thing about eating supper, so quilting must wait til after supper and on weekends.

    Usually, I'm the most inspired when I have lots of housework to do and the baby won't take a nap!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :twisted:

    Usually when I have read through a couple of quilting magazines or whenever I see a design in a game that would make a good quilt design or see a quilt in a movie (I went to go see Saw III with my boyfriend and I went "Oh, I want to make that!" after briefy seeing the quilt on the bed the one guy was sitting on...how in the world can you get inspired to make a quilt while watching a horror movie?!).

    Couldn't help but laugh at that one! Horror movie indeed! I have had people aghast with horror when I show them what I am going to have to do to quilt a project. Go figure! It is such a sight to see them running away with their arms all waving about and glassy eyed! Hearing the words faintly coming back at me over their shoulders....." I.. just ... don't.... get... it WHY do you do that????" Meanwhile I gleefully rubbed my hands together and pounce upon the piles of fabric. Sighs and strange groans emerging in the process before me. And when finally finished......like some Frankenstein of old ....I cry..."It is finished!!!" Hee-Hee

    I am most inspired when I have a really bad week at school and have so much homework..then I want to just sit and sew sew sew, but unfortuneately, I can't! Just this evening I finally made my April BOM when I really should have been getting a portfolio ready for class and other stuff. Ha...but I feel so much more relaxed and happy after sewing. Ask me how I feel after homework... :roll: :evil: I think I could have the most difficult time sewing something and getting the measurements wrong and have to rip it out a couple of times and resew it and still enjoy it more than any assignment..actually, I know I would! Usually, I get MOST inspired when it is late at night and I should be sleeping and I can't because when I lay down to go to sleep I have all of these ideas running through my head for my next project.

    Just realized I didn't say what inspired me most.....that is hard because I seem to run into inspirational ideas everywhere... the trouble is putting them down for a future project. That and getting back to the long list of inspirational notes...aahhhhh.....gotta love it!

    after helping out in my local quilt shop for a day! I want to buy everything in the shop and wind up coming home motivated to work on my projects after helping other quilters with their creations all day!
