After finishing up one of my streaming pillows this morning, I found myself vacuuming my studio. And I wasn’t just getting the scraps off the throw rugs, I was on my hands and knees sucking up the dust bunnies under the furniture. That’s when I knew something was wrong. The only times I choose to clean instead of work is when I’m anxious about something or I’m trying to avoid something.
This time it was both. I wanted to work on my Goddess Potholders today, but I was obviously a little nervous about starting. Once I knew what was happening, I couldn’t avoid it anymore, so I talked myself into starting. “Just choose a color to begin with.” I said out loud ” Stop thinking about it so much and it will come”. So I went to my solid colors and chose one that would work with pink thread ( I have to get to the fabric store, I only have pink and green thread left).
As I was cutting the batting and backing a favorite and familiar image came to me, a lamp. Then I thought a Goddess of Light would have a lamp. So I Googled Goddess of Light and the first one I came to said the Goddess of Light trusts her intuition. That was enough for me. I trusted in the lamp and Goddess of Light Trusts Her Heart became my first Goddess Potholder of the day. I guess she lead the way because I made three more after that.
I”ll have them and more done and for sale by the end of the week, as long as I can keep myself from vacuuming.
