I was thinking about this earlier, whilst reading. I have been inspired by lots of things in my sewing,
other bloggers, designers and all the usual outlets like TV.
But also Poetry, stories, traditions, family, novels and other general imaginings. So I thought I'd ask...
What inspires you?
I was thinking what and how to answer this question.. There are sooo many things and people that inspire me. I love,love to sew.. and I think that is just something that is in you..[You cant make it happen, you either have that love, or you dont]..
1- sew weekly has inspired me more than anything. All the wonderful ladies and their kind remarks. The sweet giggles of our mistakes.. the proud grins of our wonderful outcomes.. and sometimes even the tears when ....it just dont happen!!! Friends...is all I can call it!!!
2- the beautiful garments that are posted here each day..I wake up and the first thing I do is...go to see what new pictures are up.. I am HOOKED!!!
3- Fabric stores--- seeing all the beautiful fabrics and dreaming what they would look like ,made.
and all the thrifted fabrics that are shared with us..
4- Tv shows... especally the old shows and movies that show the girls in there pretty vintage dresses.
5- the weekly creations by Mena and the 4 contributors each week.
absolutely! I knew it was a hard question and I love what you ladies have come up with so far! I keep thinking of new things every two minutes. Lyrics from songs, paintings, music, like you said Cathe, people have their own distinctive style and I love how it comes out in our sewing!
I would never have thought as a teenager I would ever develop my own sense of style but when looking at my blog, I can see one! when you document things its so so clear that everyones got their own style and personality! I love this thread already! Keep it coming ladies!
