What Do You Think?
I recently bumped into a lady I was at college with a few years ago (City & Guilds Patchwork and Quilting Part I). She happened to ask me if I was doing any creative stuff at all and said that she wasn't really doing much at all because she often wondered what to do with it all - you know? I have to say that I often feel that way too. I love to be creative, there's no question of that, but recently in particular, I have been questioning why I do it. 'What's the point?' is my question. Unless I am making things for gifts or something specific for our home then I sometimes feel the project isn't 'justifiable'. The things I made for the City & Guilds course for example are stuffed in a bag in storage. Perhaps it's something to do with guilt at not earning money from doing something - a 'frivolous' pursuit? What do you think - is it a waste of time/money/effort/space? What do you all 'do' with the things you make?
