|The Orange Princess|
I can't seem to settle into anything and when I walk into my studio there are a bunch of projects all half done. Now I know that most quilters and artists, tend work this way, but I don't. I'm a Start - to - Finish type of chick. I like the routine of it - the security of it - the predictableness of it. But lately my studio has been anything but predictable. Between family projects, lost sewing machine pieces (that are found just when the new one arrives - of course!) and unfinished pieces - the chaos is getting to me.
And whose to blame for this chaos - me!
I haven't been saying No enough. I never had a problem saying No before - but lately I must think I'm wonder woman because I can't get it all done. So today I decided to say No. Ohh and start finishing up some of these projects!
I backed out of Sandy's great open studio and decided only to finish up the one little leaf quilt which I actually like. I just have to face it at work tomorrow.
I also blew off my Master's class assignment - because let's face it - its a HOT MESS. I handed it in knowing it was a hot mess and needed to be scrapped and started from the beginning - but just didn't have the heart to do it this week.
the Curves - which by the way - I've been wanting to do for a month now. I finished up the quilting. I also took out quilting due to puckering and requilted ( I swear that is a job that required the patience of a saint - swear being the key word there!) Now all I have to do is go over the main edges with more stitching and I'm done. I entered it into Amy's Blogger's Quilt Show.
Now if I want to - I'll re-do my masterclass assignment next week - but maybe I won't. and that's okay. You know I originally cut this out of a magazine (its the new Pantene ad campaign) for my teen daughter but I think I need to put it up in my studio too!
So What have you been up to creatively?
