The images above are from my last two workshops in Yorkton (Machine Embellishment 101) and Weyburn (A Fabric Affair – Stepping Out of the Box With Distorted Grids). I apologize for the quality. I only had my iPhone on me and I realize that some of these images are a little out of focus.
Today is a day of reflection: I have completed my last commitment for the year – when it comes to teaching and lecturing. I so enjoyed connecting with everyone throughout the spring, summer and fall… and now time and the studio are back in my control. If it was only that easy!
I am making strides clearing the horizontal surfaces and locating the switch to my sewing machine. A new project is pinned to the design wall and I know that a couple of uninterrupted days will see this piece assembled and ready for the call for entry I am considering.
It is grey outside – the perfect condition for spending time in my space… But somehow I don’t feel grounded. I keep reminding myself that spending such a long time away from the studio demands extra time to return to a focused mindset. I am getting there! November and December are always productive months for me. My creative juices (for lack of a better description) will warm up and begin to flow. Meanwhile, today is a day for office work, blog updates and general organizational tasks – first steps in de-cluttering my mind AND workspace.
Looks like the class in Yorton was a great class also!! I would love to do that one also!
Christa, the class I taught in Yorkton was the same I taught in Weyburn two years ago. It’s all about machine embellishment – I know there were a number of people in Weyburn who missed out for one reason or another and would like me to teach it again. We can either organize something in your “neighborhood” or consider having a small class in my studio. Let’s keep it in mind…
