Beginning


The pieces in the top photo all want to be together and so do the pieces in the bottom photo. Whether these are two separate projects or all part of one, I'm not yet sure. It's too soon to know how it will end, but it's definitely started and so I will pursue it - whatever "it" is - to its perfect conclusion.

It feels so good to be excited about doing something. I've been fretting for quite some time about when-oh-when will I ever get back into the studio and start making things again. Luckily, I stumbled upon  THIS  and it was exactly what I needed to remind about what is the most important part of the creative process.  

Hint: You have to show up.

The thread, by the way, is some vintage tan crochet thread which I dipped into the indigo vat when I took an online class offered by Glennis Dolce (Shibori Girl).  If you are not familiar with her work (and even if you are) do yourself a favor and go exploring because she makes some really drop dead gorgeous stuff and it is always a treat to spend time browsing her latest creations.


As I ponder what I will make with these elements (and this may only make sense to you if you are old enough to carry West Side Story in your memory), this is what keeps going through my mind:

Could it be? Yes, it could.
Something's coming, something good,
If I can wait!
Something's coming, I don't know what it is,
But it is
Gonna be great!
