Motherhood is not for wimps. I know all you mothers out there, know exactly what I mean. Children, even the best of them (like mine) can literally suck all your energy from you. That is, if you let them. And lately, I have been. For the last 2 months, my life has literally revolved around my child. First, her final musical, then the prom, finals, graduation and finally her graduation party. Enough!!!
Now that I have her finally settled nicely into her first job (at the university library) and driving on
her own (got her license today!) - I can return to my studio and try to find my creative self! But when I looked into my studio, I could barely find it! And if I did find it, what did I want to do in there????
So while cleaning - and CLEANING some more - I hatched a plan. Ohhh and you're going to help!! I took out the abstract piece I was working on last fall and thought I would finish that up before Quilting by the Lake. I love where this piece is going and it seems like I have a good start on it. Since I'm working home now, I have more time that I can dedicate to my studio - which I have not been doing (I blame Tessa - did I mention she can suck the energy from you?)
And what's your part??? I'm going to report back my progress every week until its completely done - yep quilting and binding and all. Please feel free to give cheers of encouragement or raspberries of disappointment if I'm not living up to my end of the bargain.
So today, I cleaned my studio and there is where I'm at on my abstract!
I'll report next week how much I get done!
So What have you been up to creatively?
