What book, you ask?
|"Bird by Bird: Some Instructions on Writing and Life" by Anne Lamott.|
I am, in fact, still reading this book as the information in it needs to percolate in my brain. She is a very funny lady and this is really a good read. Yes, it is geared to writing, but it can also apply to any sort of creative endeavor, including quilts.
|"Out of the Box: Unleash Your Creativity Through Quilts" |
by Mary Lou Weidman.
Then I started reading a totally different book. What can I say about this book? Before I was even half way though, I was sketching ideas into my sketch book! I don't know what it was about this book, but it opened up the floodgates and I have two good ideas for story quilts. Yesss!
So if, like me, you have been blocked in your quilt making, turn to something else for awhile. You never know what will unleash the creativity.
