Tapering


Ahhhhhhhh my year is nearly done...time to just about play...
after I sit down & paint an order 
then
Paint for my decorating....


People often imagine a designer & artist studio/ place is the picture of inspiration
How sadly disappointed they can be if they are ever allowed into my space for a look..
It never happens like that anymore..


But occasionally friends & new friends are invited over.... things are all around me because it is who I am & thus how I present for my own pleasure & world..


Some who are extremely neat people have a look of complete horror
the opposite is the ones who do not know where to look first..
A jar of braids excites them...


It is a work always in progress...


One day I may just toss up a different sort of trunk show....
It could only be for the dedicated creative spirits...LOL

And so... as I taper off my work 
&
my mind is roaming into spaces..
where to go first
Do Millie's Travels booklet...
It is together but I am not..
Do that other little stitchery booklet...
the majority of drawings are done too.
Draw some more wood stuff..
some were done last night before I wandered out to friends for nibblies & drinks
Then I recheck them this morning because I kind of have changed my tune on the format & design of some cats....
I want to sew some stockings & cats now too...but that involves a messy day...
I see the painted fabric collages & buttons 
& yes I want to get to that some more..
But that involves a different mind set of thought...
so tidy the other gear away first..
Nothing has gone any further 
& won't now 
as it is nearly lunch.
I should drive out to visit my brother...but a tomorrow springs in maybe Monday oh no I have appointments.
See soon Santa will land on my roof & I'll never be ready ...
Because now I have tapered off....
I have begun that bone idleness .
but No... I cannot I have my vision stuff to jot down... 
Designers are often very distracted & very different folk life is viewed from a different spot...
But it is exactly my space....
I love the way my life has been etched out just for me to play in..
