Ebb and Flow

I have the best of intentions. Really I do. I have all these projects in my head; I can see them clearly. I know what they look like, what fabrics are included, how big they are, how they will be quilted, and what I will do with them when they are finished. But in my mind, they will all be finished by the end of the month. Ok, maybe not THIS month. But some month. Soon.

My push to complete projects seems to ebb and flow. I go gang-busters for weeks, then come to a crashing halt. It’s like I can only work so hard for so long, then my brain and creative juices need time to heal. I’m in one of those “healing phases” now. My hands feel like stitching, my mind wants to relax and read.

I started reading the book “Edgar Sawtelle” by David Wroblewski this past weekend, and It has sucked me in like a vaccuum. The book is on Oprah’s list; but that’s not why I am reading it. My father gave it to me after picking it up in a sale at the Flushing Senior Center in town. It wasn’t his cup of tea… he’s more of a history buff.

Have you read the book? Did you like it?

I will be quilting more… hang tight. Right now, I’m reading. Shhhhhhh.
