Saturday morning

Last Saturday morning I did the unthinkable.  I didn't go to the Farmer's Market, I didn't clean, watch T.V or take a bath.  My friends I did something just for me.  Amidst the chaos of my office/sewing room I cleaned off just enough space to sew.  While Dave and Kyan were at singing class I started sewing together Ky's quilt.  It was glorious.  It was brief, but it was a start.  I have decided to devote that special time each week to sewing exclusively.  No matter how many dishes are on the counter, no matter if there is work or if I'm tired or if it's sunny outside, I'll be sewing.
This week has had it's challenges but overall it's been great.  I've gotten lots done and had fun as well.  I attribute that to having time to be creative and in that creation marvel at something coming together.  Yes, it may be slow but oh, it's worth it.  Saturday morning....I can't wait.

the insanity that was this room before I started

What I accomplished

Only 10 more rows to piece

Taking that time is so important. I recently watched a video of John Cleese lecturing on creativity and one of the points he makes in the talk that really stuck with me was that to be creative you have to make the time to do so.

I've been slipping creative time into my days on a more regular basis and have noticed a shift in my outlook.

Will I see you this Sunday night? If you're going to the Spiral Dance I'll make sure to say, "hello" this time
