No matter how down you get from time to time it always comes back to the small things in life that picks you up such as sunshine. It is already shining bright across the field this morning. I love that my house faces east. I get to watch the sun rise every morning, when it isn't overcast that is. I especially love it when I am wrapped in a quilt with Angell swinging on the porch swing sipping tea as the sky turns amazing colors from fuchsia to periwinkle. As it rises and I make my plans for the day my muse is usually awakened as well. Many times she wins and I run through the house sprucing it up quickly before I head to the studio to see what inspires me. If my home is tidy I feel more apt to create freely.
Lately I've been torn and I haven't wanted to begin a project but I wanted to be stitching on something. I think I just get a little overwhelmed when I finish up an issue of the magazine especially when I have so much other stuff on my plate. No matter how finely I go through the proof copy there are always mistakes I miss and it bothers me. I must admit that it is a relief when it is out of my hands and then I have some time to play before starting the next issue.....a few days anyway.
With not being able to move about my home as quickly as I used to I noticed that I have stopped doing some important things such as walk into the studio and go through the lace drawers or thumb through the fabrics until my muse takes over. Perhaps we all just need a few days to regroup after major projects???? Perhaps we can just blame it on hormones and be done with it! That is what I've decided to do :-)
This morning after watching the sunrise I saw that I have 600 followers and you know what that means? Yes, another reason to smile but also, it means another followers giveaway. I think I want to make something for the prize so I will spend some time thinking on that while my followers can leave a comment on this post letting me know what their favorite flower is.
I hope you enjoy your day and have plenty of sunshine and inspiration to make it a day of bliss!
