Okay I admit it.....I have writer's block. So let me let you in on the secret on how I write this blog. I seem to go in spurts. I'll come up with a ton of good ideas I want to write about while throwing in some posts on my own personal work. I might have a dry week with no good idea or a week I'm busy on the family front or a week that I'm sick (like last week!) but normally that only lasts a week.
Not this time. Here it is 11 pm on a Thursday night and no big idea has hit me. I really have thought about it on and off all week - honest!! But work has been crazy as we gear into Fall (which is a good and bad thing - you gotta love job security but gosh, not a moment for a creative thought!)
In my studio, I've just been working on finishing up a lot of the pieces I've started over the last couple of years. So many bindings, edges, labeling that needs to be done. I've been fall cleaning and trying to get things ready for a winter of sewing. I've been feeling more creative so I know a new project is on the way!
My daughter has her next to last First Day of School this week. Wow!!

Because of this First Day ritual, it always represented new beginnings to me rather than nature heading into hibernation.
In other news, an upcoming class that I was suppose to to take at Marc Adam's School of mural design class with David Franklin where we would design and paint the halls of the new school's new building. Apparently the class did not fill and I guess it was too much work for just David and me - grin!! I'm all disappointed because not only was I finally going to see why my husband loves the school so much in person, but also I wanted to get some insights into designing on such a big scale and how that works!! Franklin's work is Amazing.
Woodworking got cancelled. Yes you read that right - I was taking a class at my husband's favorite woodworking school. It was
Still that leaves me with a week off, no car, and a quiet house .....Does that have STUDIO TIME written all over it or what?????
So that's what is up with me! Hopefully this will not last long. If anybody has any good ideas, I'm taking suggestions.!! Please????? Anybody????? grin!!
