What Inspires Me?


This week’s question was “What inspires me” when I am creating something.


For as long as I can remember music has always been a passion and very important to me. There is never a moment that there is not a song that is “floating” in my head. When my children were young, they would always laugh when I would answer a question with a song. Something I still tend to do!


So most of my inspirations are created with a song playing in my head while I am crocheting, knitting, designing jewelry or quilting. In you notice in my jewelry shop http://MagdaleneJewels.etsy.com, most of my jewelry is named after a song – to name a few: Layla, November Rain, Black Velvet, The Rose, Ruby Tuesday. Of course with the new listings I had to go back and change the titles to reflect the item, but within the description you will find the song behind my inspiration.


Could it be a coincidence then that our CreateCrochet Team “Weekly Challenge” was to create something from a song or musical artist that inspires us. When I first read about the challenge, the song “Good Day Sunshine” by the Beatles was the first that came into my head.


I need to laugh and when the sun is out
I've got something I can laugh about
I feel good in a special way
I'm in love and it's a sunny day
Good Day Sunshine


Hence my creation for this week’s challenge: a Lemon Yellow Sundress with a pink flower for a little toddler.

DH is just now humming a Beatles tune! Yes, I love to listen to music. I'm usually looking at the window when I'm sewing together books! Watching nature and the world go round...

I love the results of your inspiration! What a sweet dress! I almost always listen to music when beading. During some strange moods I listen to nothing when working. I'm not sure why!
