Writers have writers’ block. I wonder what it’s called when apron makers get stalled? I should find that out, because it happens a lot!
When sales are happening on the ETSY shop (www.etsy.com/shop/SusiesTieOneOnAprons), that’s a good motivator for me. When I find fabulous new fabric, that can generate some excitement. But sometimes, in the doldrums of winter or the lazy days of summer, I need a jump start. I’ve tried just about every theory . . .
Sometimes I talk to my fabrics: “So, what do YOU want to be?” Sometimes they tell me; sometimes they don’t! “Okay, then. Back in the closet for you!”
Occasionally, I try to bribe myself: “If you finish just ONE apron, you can take a nap – have a treat – buy more fabric!”
