Piecing in an improvisational way comes naturally to me. I just do it. It helps that I like and collect scraps. I pull them out of a pile and put them together in a way that pleases me. I guess you'd say it is intuitive. I like being surprised at how it comes together. And it feels like play. After dealing with other things in life that have to be done, I want to enjoy my time stitching.
But I have come to realize that some people struggle with working this way. It does not come naturally to them. One fellow stitcher wants to sit by me to see how I work. She is a thinker so it could be interesting.
One of the pure pleasures of this blog for me is that it gathers kindred spirits, those of us who love improvisational work. So my question today is how do you work? How do you do this improvisational work? What works for you?
