The urge to create and sew never really goes away.
The momentum of a piece ends abruptly when its finished and I often find myself mentally spinning. That's the time for good long walks or exhausting gardening, anything to stop the buzz in my head.
A number of things that were supposed happen this summer, didn't.
With time and energy on my hands my local Guild came to the rescue. In my mail
was a notification for their Mystery Quilt of the summer. Perfect timing. Being a little short on any material of variety, I happily picked up a couple of 'kits' from our outreach program. These finished quilts will go to the domestic assault program in the hospital.
So I chose a couple of cheery kits with a colour range so far from my norm......PINK.
At the end of week three, I've a number of blocks complete.
The instructions are sent out once week. Something like this reminds me rudely that I'm a visual learner. I have to reread the details many times.
Most blocks are familiar but a few blocks I've never seen before. So the extra careful, readings (plus a few pictures) are necessary. So far no mistakes.
Did I ever mention I belong to the Elenore Burns school. ALL the trash goes to the floor.
And there's a ritual with everything I sew or create.
Everything is put away and all the waste is removed....
before I start a new piece.
In the meantime ......I'm, thinking about the next art piece.
