How fortunate I feel to come into my studio this Monday morning and have work waiting for me to do. A quilt and pillow to finish, (both sold) a folder thick with requests for Vintage Hankie Scarves, and a handful of potholder orders to fill. And best of all my deadlines are loose enough, so that when an idea comes to me that demands to be created, I can take the time to work on it. Then, when all my orders are filled I have work to make for the next Open House in September (only a month away).
I could be panicking, thinking I’ll never get it all done. I have felt this way in the past and will probably feel it again, but right now, this morning, all I feel is grateful. Grateful for my work and for everyone who wants to buy it and for everyone who wants to look at it on my website. And grateful to know that I can choose between feeling panic or feeling grateful. This morning I choose to be grateful.
