It certainly isn’t spring but, as part of settling down to a lot of work, I’ve felt the need to deal with the chaos that has built up in my space. I always take this cleaning and tidying urge as a good sign that I’m ready to tackle new projects – it’s so much easier to start something if everything looks organised don’t you think? So this morning’s task was to transform this
I can report some progress on the new patterns in that I’m continuing to draw up one or two each day. They may all be done by the end of next week and then it will be just a matter of making final clean drawings and off to the printers.
Thanks to a little gentle pressure from Jacky and Steph at Cupcake Cottons and some thinking time, I’ve started to work on several new hand quilting and design classes for next year. This feels really exciting for me because I’ve always resisted the idea of a follow up to my basic hand quilting class, thinking there wouldn’t be the demand – and also because I could never work out what the format or content should be. And I’ve made a start on samples! – resurrecting a couple of half-started projects that have been buried in the chaos.
Not sure how long the energy will hold out but it’s feeling good so far! Having started the year determined to follow Frances’ resolution to focus,but not quite managed it, it looks as if the focus has finally shown up – which is a really Good Thing. So I’m off to some more cleaning and clearing … happy stitching.
