Yesterday I did the clearing and cleaning. Today my studio was ready for me to begin something new. As I was putting away and organizing the two boxes of fabric that people had recently sent me, I came across some of the older fabric I had too.
I looked, but didn’t make any decisions. I wanted to leave that for a fresh mind.
Today I walked around my studio looking for fabric to use to make another Raven Pillow. But what I found instead were the owls. I toyed with a few other ideas for potholders before that, but when I picked up the gray owl it unquestionably felt right.
The owl seemed ghostly to me, all gray and white. I knew it needed to be in the woods. So I found the fabric to keep the feeling.
I designed five Spirit Owl Potholders before Jon and I took the afternoon off to visit the Clark Museum in Williamstown MA. I still have more fabric and I can’t wait to get back to my studio to make more.
I don’t usually work on Saturdays, but I can see going there tomorrow for a few hours. They are calling to be made.
