still here

what a bad blogger i have been - nothing for nearly 4 weeks. but then dear reader, there has been little to report of a tangible nature and even less of a tangible creative nature.

the closest i have come to making anything textiley has been this present wrapped in japanese indigo fabric.  and a few sketches in my special new sketch book to grab at the few tentative ideas that float through my mind.

due to the excess of Life that has been happening for the last few months, i have not actually done any textile work since october.  this is starting to become a concern but not a crisis - once the kids go back to school and we get back to something like a normal routine i think i'll be able to carve out some solitary creative time

in the meanwhilst i have been doing a lot of rearranging of the mental furniture and have decided that this will be my aim for 2011 and beyond.
and part of achieving that is a lot of this

Sending you hugs from round the world. I got up at 6am to sew today and it felt good!! Take care of yourself. Angela

Hopefully getting some creative time will also beat back the excess of Life. I often find myself scratchy and cranky and then I make something or plant something and I feel the anxiety slipping away.

Good to hear from you! Trusting that the muse will come back when she is needed and that her power is not diminished at all by a bit of time out. Look after yourself.
