sunshine and space.
I am so excited that today is a lovely and wonderful sunny day. I have no idea if it is warm- that is one of the draw backs in living in a 4 story walk-up- but I do not really care because the sun just lightens my load.
I finally feel like I got a little relief from my busyness and am glad that today and tomorrow will allow me 2 long days in the studio- maybe to play a little catch up.
After a very frustrating(all my fault kind of frustration) and sad realization toward a major mistake on a piece I was doing I was forced to buy some new linens- and oh they are so gorgeous and if needed will work perfectly as a replacement towards my big giant oops.
This was coupled with another linen breakdown- one that had been all prepared to be worked on ripped- sometimes the fibers are dry rot and you do not even know at first. Which again was so frustrating as the transfer of a drawing to linen is very tedious and time consuming- so now I have to start over.
But I took a deep breathe, had a beer (or 2) with a fabulous friend, and am ready to take it all in, deal with it, and make it better.
Plus I finally got the embroidery started on my sampler piece- and I am really excited about how it is going.
