I got up early this morning to spend time in my studio pressing fabric.
I haven't spent much time in my studio for a couple of weeks, other than to throw stuff in there on my way by. My guild's quilt show took place this past weekend and although I did not play a major role in putting it together there were my volunteer hours contributed, finish work on preparing my entries, and making some items for the consignment booth. Not to mention getting my house ready for a guest, my wonderful mother-in-law. Trust me, that took some time!
Our biennial quilt show is exhilarating hard work and in the couple of weeks leading up to it that's all we think about. It's always satisfying to produce a successful quilt show and to top it off I won some ribbons! But .......... the preparations keep me away from my studio work. I get antsy when I'm away from the studio for too long. I need to make something! I'm feeling a pressing need to get back to work, back to my ideas, back in the studio.
So, this morning I rose early to spend time in that space pressing fabric. It felt good just being in there. This morning we will put my MIL on a train heading for her home and I will get back in my studio. First, I must clean up and put away all the stuff I've been throwing in there and then back to work for me - making art.
Until next time-
