It's sometimes very hard to get unstuck. I have found that to be true in the last few weeks. The weather in New England has not been nice and I find that my creative spirit gets lost in the dreariness. Some of you may feel the same way from time to time. One of my weaving friends says that if you are stuck, wind a bobbin! The point being just do anything in your studio to get moving! Well I took her advice and straightened up my desk, sorted out some magazine clippings, and began to tackle the last of the painting that needs to be done in the studio.
Last weekend my husband and I got the window frames and the baseboards painted. Now all that is left are the skylight frames, a shelf, and the door to the attic space. Just getting some more things done helped me begin to do some creating. As a result I pulled out my extra handwoven fabric and designed a one-of-a-kind Shrug.
Here are the results:

Here's hoping that this is the beginning of being unstuck!
