Once again we are into my favorite season. I walk around ogling the trees and falling in love with color. The gold in my life is more from the trees than jewelry, for sure, and I am so happy to see it every year!
Can’t get enough…and the REDS…ooh….aaah…love this season.
And let’s not forget the October roses–
Hadn’t done any sewing for more than a few days, but couldn’t resist this any longer. It was there and ready to grab for some relaxing time with a needle.
Each hole now has a circle of embroidery and circle of beads around it. I really want more beading to connect the holes, but I’m not sure of how I want to do that.
I have some larger flat beads that I thought would work, but unh-unh…no! Probably end up with masses of beads meandering over the surface, but all suggestions are welcome.
Part of my contemplation this past week has been about what my studio space needs–besides cleaning, that is! I have so much stuff that I’m starting to feel overwhelmed rather than energized when I go in. I need to purge, but I’m too cheap to GIVE everything away, even if I could find someone/organization to give it to! And I am definitely not the garage sale type, so I guess that leaves –what? Using it? I can’t sew that fast! There are certainly some things that will be easy to divest myself of, and some things that I will never give up. Even if I keep most everything I have, it needs to be sorted, organized, cleaned and stored. I think that will be the focus of my studio time until winter sets in hard. There are a couple of big projects that I want to work on, but they are long term and should be slow and thoughtful.
Today–still contemplating and being lazy and it still feels pretty darn good!
