Don't you just love the anticipation of beginning a new piece of work? 

Laying out possible fabrics, threads and embellishments (which gives me the thrill of going through my stash boxes) -- deciding whether I need more thread (of course, I always do) -- determining whether to tea stain some of the fabric -- wondering what other techniques I can use to bring this piece to life - this is the pleasant anticipation I create before actually taking those first stitches.

"So you see imagination needs noodling -- long, inefficient, happy idling, dawdling and puttering." - Brenda Ueland


  1. Oh yes, the anticipation, the rummaging, the sorting through - all so theraputic and a great help in the planning and thought process.

  2. Yes, rummaging in the stash is one of the delights of starting a new project.
