"...of inspiration, is at the heart of all creation." That is the theme song to my son's favorite ride at Epcot, Journey into Imagination. It's a really dated ride and makes me want to jab sharp objects into my ears, but I tolerate it since it brings my son so much joy.
And the song had the ring of truth for me this week when trying to find my sewing groove. I don't need to have all the answers and know exactly what I'm going to quilt everywhere. I just needed a little something to get my creative process flowing. And it came in the unlikely form of mundane office supplies - sheet protectors and markers. But not just any markers though, they're my son's Crayola window markers. They dry fast and come off with the wipe of a damp paper towel (or even the scratch of a finger nail). I took pictures of the individual blocks, enlarged them onto a word document and now I have an easy way to test out different designs.
I still don't have it all figured out but that's okay. It was enough to get me back at the sewing machine.
