Creating is something I love .I love the thrill of standing in the middle of my sewing room, looking at all the fabrics and thinking about the next thing I’m going to make. I love the rush of the creative spark when I see a pattern and I immediately think of ways I could make it my own.
Creating is fabulous. But you know what sucks that thrill right out of my body (somewhat like a Dementor out of Harry Potter): comparison. While comparison might steal your joy, it also steals your creativity. Think of it as a psychological two-for-one deal where you’re at the losing end. There’s nothing worse than being in the throws of creating and you jump on social media and see the work being done by others. It’s a double sucker punch if you happen to stumble upon someone who’s working on the same pattern as you….
