Total decadent laziness…did absolutely nothing yesterday but go out for lunch, play on the computer, peruse a couple of magazines…just slug-like living! And why? Because I have all my deadline-driven projects done and ready to hang, deliver or ship.
I kind of welcome days like this. It actually gives my brain a chance to do a final checklist on the deadlines. I can almost feel those responsibilities and details falling out the side of my head to make room for something new. I’m sure I can feel my eyes rolling around inside my skull, opening wider and shifting focus to new colors, new fabrics, new ideas, new goals…
I want to go to a workshop of some kind. I’m not sure what, but I feel the need for some guided study.
There is an idea hovering at the edge of the planning part of my brain. It needs some serious thought and maybe a whole pile of fabric pinned to the design wall.
Quilt National has always been a competition that I thought was forever out of my reach or capabilities. I won’t think negatively like that anymore. I’m going to make a piece to enter in that contest. I’m not likely to make this year’s deadline, but I will have something to enter by next year.
Prioritizing…deciding what I really want to do…recharging the creative battery…that’s what a lazy day is all about. I’m awfully glad I had one.
