Peter was on vacation last week so I was too...8 days away from the studio exchanged for hanging out with my man. We didn't go anywhere but ran errands together which was fun to have conversations throughout the day while out and about in a relaxed laid back manner. We discovered Starview, a greenhouse in Henry County were we purchased some flowers for the pots on the balcony and Fox Hollow Farms in Oldham County were we purchased grass-fed beef products. The breakfast sausage was wonderful...low in fat with a full meaty taste. I have some beef pieces for stew that I'm going to use in a Nigerian stew.
This is orderly!
The 8 days away, however, felt like a ocean-size gap in my creative processes. When I walked in yesterday I felt lost. What I did was to rearrange a little...placing my hands on stuff like I was discovering, an adventurer, helped me reconnect my thoughts and purpose with the space. After rearranging, I attempted to paint, but I didn't feel right, and I knew the day was to be about stitching. I sat down at the table and worked on "abandoned", the piece that I'm hand quilting, and my spirit calmed down and I took a deep sigh of relief knowing that I was back.
