Before and during (not quite there yet, wherever "there" is).
Yesterday morning started sewing together a bunch of random blocks I was going to put together in a regular arrangement. Then I threw a piece of white fabric on the floor and played around with some of them. They've been picked up and put away while I work on the above, but we'll see what eventually develops.
None of this is the serious stuff - more like class samples. Maybe next week i can get back into the studio and work on my in-process real work. Meantime, this is therapy.
