Sometimes I can’t wait to blog. I have an idea that just needs to be expressed in words. Sometimes blogging fits comfortably into my day, I sew, I blog, I sew, I check my email, I sew, I blog, I sew…… Sometimes, when I come up with a new idea I can’t wait to put it up on my blog and see what kind of reaction it will get. Then there are days, like today, when the idea of blogging seems like an interruption to my work. I’m there, in the zone, and I don’t want to stop for anything (except lunch, I always want to stop for lunch).
I also always want to stop for dinner. Actually dinner marks the end of my work day in my studio. And by the time I’m done with dinner I usually just want to sit down with a cup of tea and my book. And sometimes, I actually do that. But tonight I was in the middle of sewing my second scarf together when Jon called to say he was starting to cook. I went in to help chop the veggies, but I didn’t drain my iron or cover my machine. I knew tonight I’d be back, at least finish the scarf I was working on.
I’m making the scarves for Michelle, who sent me a whole box of family linens. And I used a bunch of them already, but there’s a lot left for me to make more scarves and…oh…who knows what. Some of the linens, which have gorgeous embroidery on them, are not quite right for scarves. It’ll be fun trying to figure out how to use them. When I do, that’ll be one of those days that I can’t wait to post a photo on my blog.
So here I am, finishing up my day. I sewed together two of the scarves, but the third will have to wait till tomorrow. Now it’s time for that cup of tea.
