good days and bad
I was writing a blog entry this morning on my lack of progress and frustration with resuming sewing and quilting. But due to the Internet Gods intervention you are all spared from my rant. (lately when my telephone rings it breaks my internet connection )
I was going to tell everyone about my previous experience with quilting and how frustrating it is now that I can't do what I used to do. Good news though, through full imersion in quilting I was able to find my muse and rekindle my desire to sew. I suppose that is half the battle. I have decided to persevere on an easier tack. I am not going to lower my standards, but I am going to readjust to simpler projects. I suppose it is better to complete a beginner project than to continue to frustrate myself with advanced ones.
I guess this is much like those of you who have found that you couldn't really go back to your old job, well this was my old job. I was an artist and teacher. It has also been my life's work and my purpose. I was supposed to have even more time to devote to it now that my children are grown. I'm not sure how I will find a new way to partcipate. I guess I just have to keep on with my saeboflex and find even more ways to compensate.
At least it is sunny today and spring is on the way. I wish you all "good days", I know I'd like to have two in a row.
