I realized that my creativity and my stitching time has grown stagnant...due, in part, to the fact that my tastes...they are a changin! And there are some projects I no longer have any inkling whatsoever to work on. Now...rather than just not even go to the stitching bag because I don't like the project that's in there, I have decided, without apology, to rid myself of the project that seems to be "in the way" of my picking up the needle again regularly! And that project just happens to be The Green Tree Sampler by Moira Blackburn.
I don't know why it's not speaking to me anymore.....but it's not. If I force myself to finish stitching it, I will certainly be in absolutely no hurry to get it framed and it will just languish up on the closet shelf. Senseless...a waste. So it is without regret that I have put this UFO up for dibs on the Bay of Evil. And I feel good! So good, in fact, that I'm working on Frances Eden tonight!!! YAY!!!
I've read numerous articles about stagnation in the creative spirit...and how we tend to beat ourselves up over things we've started, thinking that we HAVE to finish it. We MUST...we are INDEBTED to the project....and yet, we're not!!!! It's a PROCESS! And you have to LOVE the process as well as the finished product, or, well, it's just not the kind of art and creativity that feeds the soul!
No apologies...no regret! I'm ridding myself of this project.....because I can!!!! :o) *Peace!
