|Whirligan in Scheepjes Whirl Dandelion Munchies|
But this morning, I feel a bit flat and in limbo. This is the moment when I doubt myself and wonder if I have any more designs in me. I start to worry that I've used them all up and this latest design was also my last design.
I've been here before, after the publication of each new design, and each time I get past it and find lots of new ideas bubbling up. The trick is not to force it, to give myself a little time. Tidying up all the mess I create when I create helps - all the notebooks, sketchpads and yarny mess that slowly builds around me as I work makes it impossible to focus on anything new so the first thing to do is to have a good declutter and sort out, open my sketchpad to a new page and arrange it neatly with a sharpened pencil.
After that, the best thing I can do is something completely different. I hear that Mama Mia 2 is out at the cinema and I have a teenager who would love to come and see it with me. Nothing like a couple of hours of Abba songs to clear the mind!
