It has been a busy couple of weeks here as I wrap up a bunch of projects for different fabric houses for Quilt Market. And one quilt for a magazine article this Christmas. I have been enjoying the time in the studio, but not necessarily the pressure to get things done…that pressure is at my Day Job too, and I feel behind almost everywhere I turn. Sometimes I look around me (figuratively speaking here) and I feel like everything is spinning so fast, and I just want to rest a bit, but there is no time for that…..and there should be….
It is a picture of leaves in the bottom of an old hot water heater that has been rusting in our yard for years. I kinda like it as a water feature of sorts and the rust gives it a wonderful lived in look. But just looking at it kinda relaxes me a bit…maybe its the stillness, maybe its the getting lost in the layers of the image…maybe its just the constancy of it being in the same place in the yard for over 10 years now……I dunno…..
Maybe it is just a rusty picture, but something about it reminds me to stop for awhile and notice details like this wherever I go….and that everything is okay, it will all work out.
That’s it for this post, peeps, I gotta go get some more sewing done….pictures will come eventually!!
