Whenever I have a hard time going to sleep, I try to think and plan about unfinished projects or ideas for things I’d like to create. Sometimes I’ll wake up during the night and do the same thing, rather than turn on a light and read myself back to sleep. It often leads to solutions for design problems.
Last night was very wakeful and lots of thinking went on.
I figured out two different ways to continue working on this piece that has been put away for quite a while.
And I’m pretty sure I know what to do with some lovely silk charmeuse with which I was gifted.
These great text prints are going to work well with some gelli print experiments.
There are a couple of quilts that I should take off the unfinished pile and get busy quilting. Especially this one.
There are several new ideas for using these dark circles, too.
And did I write ANY of these ideas down? Wake up enough to make sketches? Absolutely not! My sleepless ideas sometimes stick with me and sometimes they don’t. They are mostly a way to help me fall back to sleep and surprisingly, many of them do stay with me. I’m hoping this blog post will help me out with that, too, if only as a memory note for the future!
Sleepless nights are not always worthless nights……..
