Resuming a life

Everything has been on hold while I worked to deadline with the Hoffman Challenge. I didn't have to do it at all, I could have been living a less stressful life the last two months, but nooooooo. I've neglected the house, I've missed seeing friends, I've been tardy with communication, I haven't meditated!

Sometimes a goal steps up and smacks you in the face, and an idea comes to you, and you can see it in your mind's eye. That starts the "drive to make"

 I did a colored pencil drawing of the art, and couldn't stop til it was made. Driven.

The whole thing was made three times basically. Drawing out the patterns, piecing the patterns, facing and pre-quilting the leaves, then applying them to the whole and doing final joining/quilting. It's lovely and I'm almost done with the binding. Then I'll take official pictures and  write the story.
Today will be finishing and paperwork and a visit to Fed Ex.
And a walkwithpoodle before the 100 degree heat melts the sidewalks.
Go make something

  1. Way to go! I've got to do better with deadlines too, but when the flow waits until the last minute, what can you do but go with it?!

    And you still took time to blog- impressive!
