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.
