No, not sad blue. Happy blue! Shades of blue are in my mind and hands right now as I cut into this delicious hand dyed fabric from my stash.
It's been a long time since I was inspired art-quilt-wise but lately with my sketching (more on that to come in another post) and some journal work, I have been inundated with ideas. My Crafter's ADD brain is working overtime. Which also means I'm not sleeping well. Which also means I wake up tired. Which also means I've spent about $364 at Starbucks. This week. OK not really that much, but it's a crazy amount for iced coffee with a squirt of caramel in it.
Anyways! My smokin' debit card not withstanding, I am in the midst of a serious need to get all these ideas down and start CREATING. Of course like all of us, there is little time to make all I want to make. So I'm doing what I can to make what's in the forefront of my mind that day. My hope isn't necessarily to finish every project I start. But instead I'm going to try and just go with the flow of my creative inspiration right now, and see where it takes me. I may end up loving some of what I create, hating and trashing a lot of it. Either way, I think when I come out on the "other side" (read: wake up from my Starbucks-driven-high) I will have a small-ish body of work I'm proud of. And who knows where that will take me next?
More to come soon!
