Starting 2017 fresh and debt free has awakened a sleeping desire to create. Over the past few years I have come to my studio pulled things out, put them back; started some projects and left them lay…
Until I was just as depressed as before I started and now awash in fabric which had lost it’s meaning.
Previously I had taken the “*Process Pledge” and wanted to share with you what I was doing and how I was getting it done. However, my old nemesis Depression and his side kick Lack of Funds found me not able to function as I had intended. I needed a do over!
The first step in this re-boot is to clean up, sort out what I have, and then finish a gift that is now overdue to my lovely Sister-in-law and a teal block for my friend Kate in Australia who sews them together, quilts them, and then donates them for Ovarian Cancer.
- Complete the gift for my SIL and the Teal block for Kate
- Make a wool coat for me which is a lofty ambition, but I have my fabric and my lovely pattern. I will enjoy this even if it is slow work.
- After practicing on me I look forward to a couple of fun coats for my Etsy shop. I have a vision of what I want to create and will be drawing it out before I tackle the fabrics!
- Just keep creating and sharing my progress!
A journey begins with the first step and forward momentum takes it from there
I believe this. So, no resolutions, just a call to creativity for myself and then share the process and progress along the way! The projects will get done when they get done. Knowing this when I start means there will be no pressure and no deadline.
What lies ahead on your map for 2017?
*NOTE: The Process Pledge was begun by Rossi of Rossi Crafts, who is a creative powerhouse! Thank you Rossi for your inspiration!
