It began with a challenge to myself: just once a day, get upstairs and make something. It didn't matter what, and it didn't have to be useful or even finished. Just get up there and do something. I started with putting a pocket on one of Fee's old shirts that I use as a smock.
I used an eco-print of leaves that I made a couple of years ago and never did anything with.
Then I added a piece of embroidery from several years ago.
A smaller pocket.
Then a bunch of textile brooches.
Using other scraps of stuff.
the Hedge Witch
a little ghost dolly.
Things have gotten out of hand.
I'm spending at least 8 hours a the day in the studio
working on too many projects
and having a grand time.
The latest obsession is a version of the letter game.
Remember how much I enjoyed
Sorcery & Cece or the Enchanted Chocolate Pot?
I'm trying a version of the letter game
with my Baton Rouge grandkids.
I have all kinds of creative endeavors in mind
that I hope they will find entertaining.
Who knows if they will want to write return letters.
They are kids--and it might not sound like fun to them.
But if they don't want to play,
I will have had the fun of planning
and imagining, and researching.
