|Nikita's quilt, Dec 2015, Victoria Findlay Wolfe|
Just in the nick of time... I got the binding on the granddaughter's quilt and shipped off just in time to arrive for Christmas eve! It's very much in the colors I'm sure she will love. I can't wait for her to open it up and have a quilt made from her fabric choices...
Time to reflect....
I'm looking forward to taking a few days to relax and snuggle my family, and to have family time, family games, and outings, and sleeping in! I am also looking at my 2017 scheduling, and am planning to travel slightly less in 2017-2018, as my daughter only has a couple years left at home. I want to be around to enjoy these last couple years, before college life starts.
I'd also like to take more time in my studio! Traveling is great, I love teaching, and traveling, but I also want more studio time. I have so many ideas of projects I'd like to make that do not have deadlines attached to them! Much like when my double wedding ring quilt happened...I made those quilts purely for myself, because I had to make them; The exhibit and book came afterwards, as an after thought.
That sort of creative time is so valuable to me. To must make, and be lost in the process.
This holiday break, might normally look like a good time to get a bunch of work finished that is for deadlines, or quilt markets, but I am quite excited to just get to my house and play in my fabrics, and just make any old thing I want to, like a write just working in stream of consciousness.
What will come from that play? What ideas will churn up? What new project can be dreamed up?
I'm anxious to see.
I hope creative time finds you during these Holiday times...
Taking time for yourself to create, even for 15 Minutes, is worth it.
You are worth it.
