Last week, I started to approach my studio, a few hours at a time. Putting things away, finishing things and getting started on the "to do" list. First and foremost on the list, prepping for the vending gig. I got out the fabric, some regular cotton, some radiance and threw in some new cotton sateen. Mixed up some dyes. The largest holes in my inventory were the multi-colored pieces and the ombre's. At least those are fun to do. A friend was cleaning out her studio and gave my a bunch of dyes, supplies and fabric she didn't like. I had fun over dyeing some of her fabrics.
I also finished my 2nd quilt on the long arm…whoop, whoop. I ironed the backing fabric for the 3rd quilt…just need to remember how to load it now. I made a bunch a motif blocks for my upcoming class with Nancy Crow. I probably should make more. I really like 2 of them and can see using a 3rd one. Just wondering if making more is the best use of my time and limited motivation.
I did spend a full day in the studio yesterday, ironing the dyed fabric and getting ready to start a new piece (for a possible exhibit). It felt good. I just need to remember that accomplishing things, and getting to check off something from the "to do" list, always makes me feel good!
