I went into the studio excited to make some more of my new potholders. I made one of my books on the table and threw it out, it just wasn’t right. I tried it again, it was dull, dreary, too many straight lines,the browns and blues depressing.
I heard on the radio this morning that November is the most overcast month of the year in this area. In the past few years I’ve come to dread November. It’s icy cold, rainy and snowy, the sun never shines and the days are short. Today was the “perfect” November day. There was rain, snow, sleet and wind. It was cold and the sun didn’t shine once. It’s 5:00 and already dark.
So after a few tries, I gave up trying to make anything new in the studio. I sewed together some potholders I had made last week for the Creative Union show on Saturday.
Keeping with the day, I kept my expectations low and did what I could do.
