The last couple of weeks have been a blur of mostly non-creative activity. My energies have been directed elsewhere, but I'm not sure exactly where. I finished the baby quilt for Phoebe and delivered it to her grandparents on New Year's weekend.We went to see the Picasso at the Guggenheim and the Matisse (which I loved) at the Met and ate ourselves silly over that holiday weekend.
Since then, been doing mundane chores -- have not been in the studio, although I made an attempt this morning, only to discover a dead battery. By the time it had been replaced it was not worth going in. Do not ask me what I did at home all day -- more mundane chores like cleaning the garage and packing supplies to be shipped for my next class. My nails are breaking -- victims of the cold, dry weather and, I think, a bad manicure.
I have been putting pieces of cloth on the wall, only to take them off again, and I haven't even photographed them so you can see them. I was heartened to receive a lovely email from Shawn Delker who got my book as a Christmas gift and sent a photo of the resulting quilt. What a happy surprise!
Tomorrow I have a doctor's appointment and will make an attempt at the studio again. on Friday I am jurying an exhibit for the Montclair Art Museum. The weekend is already scheduled up the wazoo, so perhaps I will put in another bit of time tonight on the piece in process. Or not:-)
