At sixes and sevens

Do you get days when you just don't seem to settle down to anything, you start stuff and then stop, you have ideas but don't know how to convert them into work, or you simply don't feel like doing anything at all. I have been feeling like that for the last couple of days.
I think it mainly happens when I have been working very hard for a deadline and then everything just feels a bit flat. Trouble is I have another exhibition coming up in a couple of months time and not the faintest idea what I am going to do, not a single concrete idea in my head.
I guess the best thing to do is nothing, wait for inspiration to strike and hope it doesn't take to long.

In the meantime I have two new books on weaving to explore Lynn Gray Ross - Hand Weaving The Basics, which is just that but has some interesting design elements and Silvia Heyden - The Making of Modern Tapestry, which I had to pay a fortune for but is well worth every penny and may have me shooting off in new directions.

Also winging its way to me is India Flint's latest On A Wandering Wind, in which I am included.


  1. Oh yes, I went through that this past January and February. I thought my miasma would never leave - each day seemed interminably long with the sad results of me not doing much of anything creative. Grrr! Hate those times, but they do pass so just be good to yourself and wait for the inspiration and the energy.

  2. Thanks Penny, I am trying to do a little something everyday even if its not very creative.
