As 2010 drew to a close I was overwhelmingly busy.
Between organising an exhibition, re-issuing all of my patterns on CD and setting up a website I also made quilts, quilted quilts for others, finalised HUGE amounts of work for my real job and organised Christmas. By the last week of this year I was exhausted.
I enjoy being busy and I feel a huge sense of accomplishment for all of the items I ticked off my to-do list during this time. However, there is a downside. Along the way I created a huge mess. Things that should have been put away were placed precariously on tottering piles of other things that should have been put away. It was stifling my creativity to be working in such a mess.
SO… I had a huge clean up. It has taken me three days and the trailer is full of rubbish that my Pete is about to take to the dump. I really should be ashamed of the chaos that was created, but instead I’m endlessly impressed with my shiny, tidy studio.
Now I can sew with a calm, creative mind.
