Last spring drapery swatches destined for the dumpster found their way into my family room.
Visions of art quilts danced through my head.
Over the summer a few of those beautiful fabrics were liberated from their bindings.
It turned out that prying open sample books and removing umpteen staples was a time consuming, knuckle-scraping, red-face-making, downright messy task...that could wait.
I felt a little pang of guilt each time I walked by the mountain of swatches awaiting my attention, but suppressed the urge to rip into the pile again...until NOW!
I am sorting by colour, throwing neutrals into the center.
|My colour tool is handy for this step.|
I set aside the silks, not including them in the colour wheel:
|I have a gut feeling about these. Something special is brewing.|
I also have a stack of "see through" fabrics. These ones are crinkly!
Last week I'd mentioned that I use a planning and goal setting tool that makes my heart sing.
Here it is!
After getting to know her through her blog (I enjoy her joyful personality!), I finally decided to put out the ten bucks and buy her 2013 planner. I'm so glad I did!
I snapped up the 2014 edition as soon as it became available.
I don't do every single exercise in the book...only the ones that are meaningful and useful to me (about 90% of them).
When I do the work (and it is work) I feel empowered and free, mindful and focused, hopeful and happy. And my heart sings.
Until next time,
Try, Learn, Grow!
