Needing a new project to work on? Wondering what to do with that stash, whether it is paper, ephemera, or fabric?
Often, I look at my stash of fabric, sort and resort trying to put colors together, patterns and what not, in order to spark my creativity! I find pieces that will go together--a child's crayon carrier in two fabrics; I find fabrics that will make a nice apron; I find pieces in similar colors that I set aside for a future quilt. Some of these projects even get cut out for later construction. I stack these probable projects together, separate from my general stash, for future use. My stack of future projects gets larger and larger. I also make a list of these projects with an empty check box beside them. That way, I can check off the projects as I complete them and keep track of what still needs to be done. I post this list on my inspiration bulletin board.
When will I get to the projects? On those days that I am stuck for creativity, I look thru these preset stacks for a short project that I can complete to encourage myself.
