|my quilt Imagine hanging in the entry to the studio|
I forced myself to go into the studio this week, and realized you can find the Muse while finding your stuff.
Is anyone out there as messy as I am??? We are in the Pilot program, pile it here, pile it there.
I had created an archeological dig in the studio. Just keep throwing bags in, PIGS (projects in Grocery sacks), new fabric and beads, books, etc. I was barely able to find a path in.
This week, after coming to acceptance... I decided to be brave.
AMAZING! I found things I thought were lost forever, or accidentally thrown away.
(AS IF I would throw something away lol)
I found this bag, this magical bag full of finished and nearly finished beaded projects and tons of beads! Yea!
I found supplies I've looked for for months!
I found scraps given by friends, and made some items as medically necessary sewing
These were from some scraps given me, some odd strip sets. I cut them into 9-patch size, and resewed them. It might become a table runner with some sewing room fabric borders. Or a valance.
The point is, it got me sewing.
Sewing is calming.
It's a good thing.
I also sewed together some floral scraps given me... these things are good to do when you need to sew but your brain isn't firing on all cylinders. I'm making a tote bag with it, stay tuned as it's turning out so cute!
This is September's calendar page
It says, "the world is not going to come to you.
The sooner you realize that, the more time you'll have to pack"
We have had changes befall us recently, and there are some changes we need to make. There are even some changes we WANT to make.
Better get going...
