Summer projects

I plan on doing some pottery this summer.
Renewing my skill with the wheel.
I love doing tactile things with my hands.
I may not be good at it
but it is soothing.

A New Week

 My ponds have been inspirations for lots of art quilts.
I enjoy getting up each day and looking out to the
big pond to see who is around each day.
Some days it wood ducks. sometime its
Canadian geese.
There is always something going on.
Today I will finish cleaning my studio.
Then on to creating.

Figured out what's wrong.
Sore throat and ear infection.
Now to rest for the week end.
Monday is a fresh start.
Did get half of the studio clean.
Hope to finish it today.

Attitude Adjustment Needed

Is it safe to come out yet?
I seriously need an attitude adjustment.
The past 6 months anything I try with art
just comes out awful.
I have lost my muse.
Hope I find it quickly.
Wanted thoughts and prayers to find my way
Back to ME.
I am going to the studio to clean.
Maybe a clear space will mean a clear mind.
I apologize to anyone I have irritated.
I may be absent for awhile to clear my mind.

 A foggy start to Monday.
I am raring to go.
I have a Daisy quilt to finish.
Spent a very nice Easter with the family.
The great grandsons were fun.
Hunter and Brent loaded George into my car.
George will go to Lafayette to a new home.
In June I will redo my studio so we
are clearing space.
Well its only 7:30 but I am off to create.

The birds are busy

 Sitting by the window this morning looking
towards the backyard I see the birds busy
gathering nest building material.
 I love all the activity.
Birds arguing over territory.
Shuffling through the ground trash looking
for just the right pieces for their nest.
Two male cardinals chasing each other
to determine who gets which tree.
Spring gotta love it.

Rainy Monday

A Rainy week ahead starting with Monday.
The earth will green up fast and lots

Happy to see the wood ducks come in each morning
to wet their wings.
Looking forward to a great week.

Sunflower Saturday

 Its a rainy Saturday.
A nice day to relax.
I am working on a new art quilt.
A giant white Daisy.
On a snow dyed background.
 So far this is the biggest flower I have done.
Time to get going on making quilts
instead of talking about them.
My life has gotten in the way of creating.
That is about to end.
Creative self needs to take over.

The world never is the same.

 This past week I notice the farmer had removed my
favorite stand of trees.  So glad I took photos.
I always admired natures control of the growth
of these trees.
 Another spring of toasted magnolia blooms.
Crazy spring weather.
Soon the wood ducks will return.
Then I know it is really spring.
