Comatose…that’s a good word for the extreme laziness I’ve been feeling this week. I have all kinds of excuses. I am stuck on some design decisions. I have a cold. Lots of outside commitments, like a dentist appointment and lunches. But mostly I just haven’t felt like diving into my work.
I feel like I’ve been complaining so much about not finding the right thing to go in the center of my ‘light’ piece, and I still haven’t found a bead or bauble that is right. However, yesterday my friend made a wonderful suggestion to look up symbols for light, since that was what I was trying to portray. Yeah, that was a ‘light bulb’ moment…hahahaha!
There are a lot of yin/yang symbols that portray light and dark and some things that don’t seem to deliver any kind of message. I found some Celtic symbols that I liked, though they didn’t necessarily mean light.
This is the symbol I will probably use.
It seems to be Hawaiian and means ‘the light that makes you gasp’. Isn’t that a wonderful phrase and thought?
I have to get it drawn to the best size for the piece and then decide the best materials, but I love this idea and I think it will work just fine.
This weekend brings a little bit of hockey, a quilt guild meeting and another trip to the dentist. There should be a tiny snuggle up with the grandson, too…the best part of any day of the week!
