Just heading down to my studio every day with no expectations is a wonderful feeling. I never have issues with what to create, because I can get myself started with any scrap from the scrap basket. What stalls me, though, is working on something just for fun when I know that I have upcoming comittments that are not 100% ready to go. Do I take time to play or do I take care of the obligations first so that there is no last minute panic? Can I handle the lingering undercurrent of guilt if I play instead of putting work first? But my work is also a lot of fun!
Guess what? I think I can cover both bases. I have a piece that I’ve been dragging around for a sample for over a year. It could continue to be a sample, but if I put it together it can graduate to a different kind of sample! Or even a finished piece. And I can play at being creative. Then maybe tomorrow I can organize my stuff for the library night and DesMoines.
Promoting myself reminders:
Spontaneous Quilt Adventures, Tecumseh District Library, Tuesday, Sept. 13, 7 PM.

All right–decision made. I’m going to work on the sample first and then organize my work stuff! Fun keeps me happy and wanting to work more!
