That chill to the air that signals the setting in of the Autumn season ignites my creative tendencies. I know I’m not alone in that based on comments from friends and the things I’m seeing on other blogs and on Facebook, etc.
It started with something simple – I wanted to send some homegrown garlic to a friend but felt the need to put the garlic in something special. So I dusted off the sewing machine, pulled out a piece of scrap muslin and ta-da a garlic drawstring gift bag was born. From there I had the urge to make tote bags with scrap bits of fabric, all in the name of cleaning out the old fabric stash. Lots of bags have been made, some will be used for gift giving, some for trading, and even a few for selling.
Even the knitting needles and balls of yarn have been pulled from the summer hiding places and put into service. The seasonal return of those creative juices and projects feels good indeed.
What are you working on creatively these days? Does your creative juices flow more or differently with the seasons?
