What do you do once you come down from a big emotional big high?
For me it was the selling and making of the Garden Of Lia Eden art quilt. So much praise...Ego soaring...continued e-correspondence with S. and her continued "breathlessness, and appreciation, praise, reactions"...
I hung the beautiful prayer flag I bought from Terry Busse on Saturday over the sliding back door behind my sewing machine where I can see it while I work and get inspiration.
It says across the squares: "Grow Flowers...The Bees...And the Butterflies...Will love it...And your heart...Will Bloom...One group of words on each of the six squares. So light and pretty.
So I went outside and planted sunflower seeds in both my front and back yards. Lots of them all over the place...the seeds are from last years Sunflower art show....I hope they are still good and will grow and bloom...
Then I took a little gift (a healing pouch) I got from Terry and a cloth flower of hers too and three big grapefruit from my tree next door to D & D who are still grieving the loss of their beloved dog, Bear.
And then I got to work on this new art project. It's a group project and it requires making this appliqued quilt top within precise measurements...[We already know that is NOT a Lynn thing]
And I got frustrated, because even though the beginning measurements were correct...the more I tried to add the pieces outside the basket they did not line up like the picture I was to follow, and I became even MORE frustrated...and more frustrated...
So I stopped.
It has to be near perfect...as the task is to finish this quilt top and then one person in the group will collect them from 15 of us and cut them up into fifteen pieces and we will each get a piece from each artist & one of our own to piece back together a new quilt top, which we will then quilt ourselves to keep.
My pieces are not going to line up correctly.
What to do?
