I have a partial answer for your question -- I too have been a dabbler in many things for years and years. However, once you enter some shows (or some other form of commitment) then your choices are removed and you are forced to work.

It was good training for me in the magazine business, because I absolutely could not wait for inspiration to strike -- that business is completely built on deadlines, and whether or not it's what you want to make, you're making it -- TODAY.

Now I'm feeling the siren song of other projects again -- luckily the blog came along this year to let me dabble in something while still doing what I need to do, but it seems that after 5 years, maintaining focus is becoming difficult. I don't feel like I'm "done" making wool pictures; I do feel like I stagnate when I'm not trying new things and it's been awhile . . .

And your work, BTW, is exquisite LuAnne. Everything you do. Seriously. I'm humbled.

Susan, thank you for the positive comments, which are way too kind... but very nice to hear, especially from you (a REAL artist!).

For now I'm continuing with the sewing, more pillows at the moment; I'm not one to twiddle my thumbs for very long. It's mostly this nagging feeling of not being freshly creative/inspired that's bugging me most. So I'm working on some new pillow variations and thinking about applying similar ideas to bags or other items eventually.

If all else fails I can go clean the craft room, which is the quickest way to rekindle my interest in just about anything... other than cleaning!
