I've been riding on a wave of creative ooommppaa for a while now. Making, making - ideas buzzing about here and there. Then suddenly one day with no warning it all stopped. I'm ambling about at the moment with no direction which isn't good for me. I hate these empty bits when they come along. They always turn up at some point and I'd completely forgotten what it feels like when they do. I searched about for inspiration for a while today, but as I had an ill Bun at home my search was limited to my wee homestead.
So I looked at some girly stuff, but no bells rang there.
Shapes, patterns and reflections all helped me draw up some ideas for embroidery patterns. Did I get stitchy? Well I looked at my threads for a while and then I got distracted again.
Then I tried some natural shapes. Shells, baubles and a thing. I don't actually know what my thing is called other than it's upside down and should be hanging on the wall. But then, I've always liked it upside down and on the floor.
Then I had another think and realised that just like every other time this has happened, I'll have to go with it. My ooomppaa will come back and I'll be making stuff again soon.
