|Earlier this month but it looked like this today too!|
For the last couple of years since I've had my blog to keep my accountable, I have been getting a bit done in February - but just a bit. It took me all day to get the gumption to get into my studio to do something. sighhhhh but not a lot. I just couldn't find the peace I needed to create.
I did find the piece of fabric though I was looking for. I managed to find the right light gray fabric to sandwich with felt and the right stabilizer. This summer, while shopping with my friend Kristen for fabrics for her college play costumes - I found the best "fabric". Its this stiff nonwoven curtain liner that comes in these huge widths. One thing I've learned is that you can dicker at the remnant store, so I talked the guy down to 70 cents a yard for it. It was nice and stiff and so big I thought - gee I can use it for something. Well - not only does it make great patterns - but it also makes a great cheapie stabilizer! Sulky eat your heart out!
Anyways - I did get the thread work started. The stabilizer is working out great and I'm starting to blend my grey threads. And yes I missed the deadline of the dreaded 28 day month. But I reminded myself that my studio work was suppose to bring peace to me - not to create stress. And since I'd rather be under my blanket instead of in my drafty studio - I went and read. (My husband promised to reinsulate under my studio for next year - windchills were -20 to -15 below today!!)
So that's my story and I'm sticking to it!!
What have you been up to creatively?
