It has been a crazy time with several projects not working out, and just a lot of downs and not many ups this year. SA has been doing most of the garden work and I really miss being out in the plants and soil, so am making an effort to get outside-even in the winter and work in the garden. It is so much a part of my creative inspiration. Only one more design event next weekend, here’s to hoping for a big, positive finish, with my art, before the Holidays.
So much rain, the leaves are falling, the weather is really crazy this week, it is making me a little edgy ( my sinuses are a wreck) and hard to get all my studio work completed.
It is interesting how, you can make a schedule, work to get everything done and everything changes. Trying to do several new things this year and all those typical things like weather, accidents get in the way. But I know I have to keep moving, and these little detours are will not stop me, just slow things down, or show a new direction, I might not have seen before.
SA and I had a relaxing weekend on the Eastern Shore in Onancock. We stayed at the lovely Charlotte Hotel and restaurant, and really enjoyed our visit to long time friends Nancy and Brenda and their wonderful new home and studios. Also, had time to stop by the new Shooting Star(who has some of my textile work available), in Cape Charles.
My entry in the Bra Ha Ha event to raise money for womens’ breast health. You can see it and more creative and fun bras made by others from the Smithfield area at the Art Center @ 319. This creation was inspired by the persistant mother bird in my earlier post. Like in mother nature, we have to adapt, adjust, nurture and persist in helping all women have access to what they need for their health.
I have been inspired the last few weeks, by a little bird. SA made some new lights for the front porch. The old ones rusted and everything we saw at the stores were not interesting(this happens to me a lot). So this little bird decides to build a nest-this late in summer-inside the light fixture. We have two lights on the porch, but she had to use the one near our front door. So not we are dive bombed every time we go out the door, and we cannot turn on the lights. It is a testament to the dedication, in the beginning we tried to move the nest before it got to big. But the birds never gave up on using this exact spot. I guess we should use this lesson, even if things don’t quite work out you can still keep going. Still trying to figure what type of birds they are, anyone know what they are?
