3 Days out of the studio is too long!

Hello World,

Last week was a crazy week. A very good friend of mine died on May 7th unexpectedly. Her memorial service was Thursday May 19th in Fairbanks. Mike an I did a day trip to Fairbanks. Yes you heard me right we did a 370 mile trip one way in a day. Left Anchorage at 6 am on Thursday and arrived back home at 3:30 am on Friday.

Then I hosted Saturday Sampler at the shop on Friday night and Saturday Morning. So I have been a little tired. I wanted to come up to the studio last night but was too tired. So I have played in 2 sessions today in the studio!

I now realize my therapist I saw in Oregon was right. Creating is not an option for me. For me to stay healthy and happy I have to create. I need creating just like I need air, food, and water!

It has felt great to be back in the studio today. I am finding myself much more protective about my studio time. I do not do it to hurt or bother anyone I am doing it because that is what I need to do for me!

I am working on:

  1. The quilt that never ends
  2. The apple core wall hanging
  3. The split tumbler quilt

Happy creating

Gene
