Sorting and procrastination

Accordion book

Wow! The sun is shining and it’s a beautiful day here. Cold, but beautiful, after days of cloudy and rain. Artwise, there’s only a tiny bit of new around here. On Saturday, I took a workshop on making an accordion book. It’s filled with watercolor paper, just waiting to be filled. I’m thinking this might be a good thing to do with my daughter and grandsons while they are visiting. It’s always good to have inside plans just in case the weather turns on us.

So, what have I been doing? Sorting, going through stuff, emptying boxes, procrastinating. One might say that I am procrastinating right now, before I get back to the task of sorting, cleaning out closets, etc. You know when you get to the dregs? The stuff that has no home? The stuff you don’t know what to do with? That’s where I am. I did find one thing in the middle of some financial papers. This piece of notebook paper with my daughter’s drawing and wishes for a happy birthday from years and years ago. I like the dot dot dot added before the inside part.

And there’s this treasure found in the bottom of a sack. I had been wondering where all my embroidery floss was. Somehow I had a picture in my head of finding it more organized than this. Oh, well. It’s not, but I can still use this for some small pieces.

Now, it’s back to the dregs. Then on to cleaning the studio. How does that get to be such a mess during the weaving process?

What’s everyone doing?

    I have been trying to psyche myself up for a big clean too. I know my studio is in shambles, but I really don’t want to stop making and clean it. So the piles grow and grow. Happy Holidays Sherri! I hope you have a great visit with your grandkids.

    It’s hard to get psyched up for this kind of stuff–not much creativity involved! My studio is the theme for the next two days. At least I can listen to a book in there. Happy Holidays to you, Maria! Your studio will still be there later. ;))
