Sometimes for myself it's simply that I require a new dress or new bag as the old one has passed it's sell by date. Or I have a special function and I've nothing appropriate to ware for it.
But that's not the only way I decide on what to create next.
Take for instance last week my friend ordered some cushions and bunting from me and sent me the materials she wanted me to use.
This sort of got my creative process started and now I have in my little book a number of ideas for designs for pincushions and bunting. Mostly in fabric but some in crochet and knitting.
Another time I was sitting on a bench in the park when I over heard a little girl tell her mother that the flower beds looked like her striped blanket which got me thinking and I then made a granny striped colourful crochet blanket.
What gets your creative juicies flowing and how do you decide want project next to undertake?
usually it depends on how i feel and also wether i'm thinking of stitching for christmas.
though i've had no stitchy bug and its only just come back and what triggered it was i decided to start stitching a small bird kit.when im off hols i'll finish the tiger on a rock then i've already decided on two kits poppies and a winter garden bird table with birds on.
