I can't believe it is after 1am. I was in the studio for 3 hours today. Three hours of bliss. I applied a second layer to the fabrics shown...the dye colour is brazilnut....looks black, so I'm eager to see what they will look like after the wash out. My mind bounces between thinking about what comes next for the fabrics and imagining new quilt designs for them. I try to lay down to sleep and end up wondering about any studio time tomorrow (today) and what will come next. If I'm not thinking about this, then I'm being consumed with the upcoming garage sale and fielding phone calls and emails about items listed for it. Its been this way all week so far...over and over and over my mind goes on like nothing else exists...I read/watch the news and it immediately gets pushed back. The only thing I've given some thought to besides what I've mentioned is an agreement our public hospital has entered to honor the Catholic doctrine of being against tubaligations and will no longer perform them. The article didn't mention vasectomies, but I'm assuming they will not do them as well. This is OUR PUBLIC hospital...the one that cannot turn you away for not having insurance. It is associated with University of Louisville and thus has a stellar reputation for being a public hospital. I know there is a petition that has started and I will contact the person tomorrow, but this pisses me off, to put it mildly. I mean couple this with the debate insurance companies are having about paying for birth control and there is nothing subtle about the erosion of human rights.
I walked into the mother's garage today for the first time in over a year and thought I'm so in over my head because the place is a mess! It is not the mess I can see that bothers me as much as the messes I don't see...you know, the disorganized closets, attics, garages, etc. But come what may, we're going to do this and get it done somehow, someway!
Not sure how the day will go tomorrow but the one thing I'm really looking forward to is picking up my first crop of veggies and fruits from the organic food co-op I joined! Woohoo! So I'll let you know what I score!
Okay, it is now almost 2 but writing this helped me to empty my mind...thanks you for stopping by...I believe I'll sleep now. :)
