Piles of fabric have been growing on every surface and clogging the corners in my studio.
Looking at them this morning. I though my studio the perfect example of the idea that a person’s environment reflects what’s going on inside them.
My head is all over the place, an unfocused mess.
I finished Cindy’s quilt last night, and now I get to start something new. And that’s always exciting, whether I have a few ideas floating around in my head (which I do) or not.
But I wasn’t feeling it today.
I actually found it impossible to do anything except pick through the piles of fabric, putting things on shelves and or at least in more organized piles, so I could see what I have and know where it is.
My head is begging for some space. Not just physical space, but space between my thoughts.
I know I won’t start something new today, maybe tomorrow.

Maria, I can imagine exactly how you feel! I don’t know how you keep all your fabric pieces organized, except perhaps in color groupings. My head would be spinning too! Take a break…you deserve it!
God help me if what you wrote, “…a person’s environment reflects what’s going on inside them.”…didn’t just hit me right in the face. I am knee-deep in trying to downsize, minimalize, simplify, clear the space…whatever we call an old lady stuck in no-motivation-land. Perhaps your words will motivate me. There isn’t floor space in my house without a box of stuff to go thru, or a horizontal space without a precarious stack. I have a feeling you might know what I’m talking about.
I hadn’t read either of your blogs since Aug. 20th, 8 days ago. And it is 3:55 a.m. right now. I think I started Jon’s at about 1 a.m. My goodness, he was prolific on Friday, the 23rd! And a few minutes ago I started Full Moon, and was hit right away with that truth!! Now I don ‘t want to sleep. I just want the sun to rise and to get on with it! Whatever “it” is! Hallelujah and Amen!
I had to laugh when I saw this picture. It reminds me of my husband’s office … piles of papers and clutter everywhere. It’s a mess, but if you ask him where something is, he usually can find it quickly. I’m a neat freak and it drives me nuts!
I can see why you didn’t need the materials I offered. Just to let you know that they will go to Goodwill.
I learnt some time ago that our local Goodwill is happy to accept yardage and knitting yarn and they go immediately.
I’m glad they will go someplace good Erika. Thanks for asking.
“…space between my thought..”
You are awesome at expressing what you feel
Thank you Carolyn.
