If you need inspiration …

If you can’t get out for your own inspiration, here’s a blog that might help. It’s by Jane Dunnewold, who is a surface designer. She set out on a mission to post a picture a day for a year. Which reminds me, our guild is having a workshop with Holly Brackmann in 2010. Oftentimes, workshops in other creative areas can spark inspiration for my weaving. Plus, many years ago I wove a striped piece to just use up yarns and I hate it. Thought maybe some surface design might improve it … just thinking out loud.

Today is a day of weaving and maybe some finishing on the previous piece. Why do I postpone that finishing? Wait until it HAS to be done? Much prefer the actual weaving. Will also make another trip to Kinko’s for an enlargement, and to the library for more books on tape. Boy, I’m spending lots of hours at the loom with those books on tape!

    There’s lots of schools of thought on this topic. Some collage daily, some get out the crayons and color daily… I love the right angle cardboard thingies to focus in on an area that you might not see in the “big picture.” Or a rectangle cut into an index card.
