It seems like the new year just started. How is it that it's already July?
With a new job, much better than the last, the months have flown by. A lot has changed, and a lot is about to change. I'm switching cities too- after 8 years in New York state, I'm off to Pennsylvania. Packing has started, especially the studio. My sewing machines and loom are the only things remaining. I'm currently working on a friend's wedding dress (for July 31!) and a multi-colored warp and gray weft cotton/wool blanket. The new place will have windows! natural light! space for visitors! although I will miss my current studio's spacious ceilings, loft storage, artist neighbors, and Lowe's hardware store next-door. The new space will also promote focus. I have a tendency to want to do everything at once, and this will be a good reminder to focus. Depth, not breadth. At least for now.
More thoughts to come, especially since this month is a good one for mid-year resolutions. Getting things done: mending & tailoring clothes, building a lamp, sewing curtains, a California wedding, and sleeping with Sequoias.
