During grief my plans for my creative self are all that get me threw. They give my mind someplace to go and not be pulled into a sadness, but to think of joy. I'm so very lucky I have my creative self to hold me up. To keep me from falling into a place I do truly not want to go. I know I was given this gift to help myself and make others happy - so for now I will grab hold of it and ride it into my future. Planning shows and trying very hard to work at my bench - I have to push myself but things are getting made - thou very slowly.
Music City Modern Quilt Guild is having a dye workshop next Saturday (Aug 16th) which I'm excited about. I've not been to one of the meetings in months and it will be nice to see folks again and play with dye. I love dying fabric so it will be great to get some pointers from a real pro like Jayne. Here is her blog - and her Etsy.
This weekend we are celebrating my niece's collage graduation - wow time flies. Speaking of time flying my little Ian is going to kindergarten next week! Yikes how did that happen.
Today I made several pair of earrings
this being one of my new patterns.
This tiny wire coiling is very relaxing and these small
projects are easy to do while watching hours of Criminal Minds.
This is a very organic chunky pendant
I really liked the textures.
Natural stone/clay and wood
