Back Home and Trying to get in the Zone
Hard to believe I've been home a week and haven't had much to blog about until now. Been down due to the continuing remodeling projects that have lasted way too long. All work was to be completed while we were away. No such luck. The studio and adjacent guest room as well as my kitchen area is in total disarray.
But things are getting better. I've been able to finished the two mini quilts: English hexagon piecing: I Spy and Hexagon Landscape - I machine quilted them. I hand pieced while in Vegas. I also created my first paper doll. I plan to do more of them - in hopes to come up with a life size self portrait for on upcoming Fiber Show. I have a commission art pillow to design and get sewing and quilting on. I'll start that tomorrow.
Finally got into the "zone" - my creative side - walking this morning. I'll post the haiku I wrote along with a thread doodle tomorrow. When I can overcome all the stress of daily living, my mind is able to be creative.
Oh, I forgot - I had a great time visiting my darling daughter and her man. I enjoyed the puppy, Baxter, as well. It was a bit on the chilly side but I walked every day! I am fortunate to have a great relationship with my daughter!!!!!! Glad to be home. I do so enjoy my son and his dog. I'm lucky to have them close by.
