Writers block, or any kind of creative block is rough but what is worse, having inspiration and not having the materials to see your vision through.
It’s like a steam engine ready and fired up and no rails to go exploring on. It just doesn’t work. Well I dealt with this yesterday.
I finally figured out what I wanted to make. I wanted to make something small and useful yet elegant. So I set out to make a beautiful, colourful, peacock feather bookmark. It met all of my criteria.
So I started with inspiration. This beautiful photo! There was no pattern but I was determined. Pinterest is a great place to find inspiration and patterns but sometimes, you don’t find the perfect things. Well this is what I found and I wanted to recreate it.
I started to crochet and write it down as I went, stitch by stitch, and as I pulled out and tried again I scratched it out. Eventually I got it to where I wanted it, or so I thought.
I fought and i knotted but I finally got it to look the way I wanted! Everything was perfect!
Except one thing! My yarn was too big. If I use it it will hurt my books and thats an even bigger tragedy then the yarn being too big. Now what?
Well I decided to block it anyway. Maybe I can figure something else out with it.
But In my frustration I did find a great colour in a smaller yarn, maybe I’ll try another design with this yarn.
What do you think I should do with my too thick “bookmark”?
