This week has been characterised more by distractions that by any kind of diligent effort in the studio. That's the way life goes sometimes, isn't it. When I find it hard to focus on my bigger tasks and projects I try to tackle a few little things – like tidying up the bookshelves, or organising the stationery drawer, or wiping some marks off the walls. That way I can make up a little bit for feeling largely unproductive. Does that make sense?
So while I'm feeling a bit frustrated about any sewing progress this week, I do have an extra tidy house. Hopefully that means I can enjoy extra sewing time next week.
While it has been a different sort of week, it has also been rather nice. I had a sewing friend for three days (and watched her house grow on another day). I also had Caleb home sick for four days, which Daniel and I both enjoyed! I also got to pop out for the opening of the Minnawarra Art Award and thoroughly enjoyed that little outing.
Thanks to my sewing company, (and play company for the boys), I did at least manage to finish cutting out my latest (large!) quilt. Now I'm eagerly anticipating lot's of stitching next week.
