Some Days A Girl Just Needs To Dream...

Do you find that some days, no matter how hard you try, you just can't focus? I have so many ideas swimming in my head right now that I couldn't settle on a single project to tackle in the studio yesterday.

I sorted and chose fabric in lovely colors, patterns and fibers to make a few new things I've been thinking about. Then I sorted fabric. And I moved a few things around. And I looked through a few new magazines. And I made a cup of tea. Then I called my mum to chat. Handsome was gone most of the day, and I had planned to accomplish so much in the studio in his absence. I guess I was just too scattered.

At the end of the day, all I had managed to do was mount and decoupage two reproduction cabinet cards onto fomecore. They are lovely gifts from my friend, Margaret B. (The French Bear) that I had decided to protect and decorate for the studio. I'm going to embellish and finish them later today, and then I'll share them with you. Not much to show for a cold day here in south Florida.

I'll leave you with this image of the vignette on my studio work table that I enjoyed for most of the day. Acorns and beautiful fibers. The day was not lost.

Donna, I love that acorn, what is it? I saw the most amazing little shoe that was a sewing kit, but it was sold, from France....... oh how I wish I could have got it first!!! I wonder what you are going to do with the lovely wool?
You always seem busy doing so many things, it was probably nice to just relax!!!

Hello Donna,

I know exactly what you mean..somedays I just ramble around and touch stuff and let my mind unwind a bit because there's no way I'd get anything done.

Have a great day,

Kept yourself and your studio warm a little longer, Donna. This cold front hitting us is staying around for a couple of more days, dern it! Happy arting!

Oh how I've had many of those days. Seems I hop from room to room and start a little something in each forgetting why I went in that room in the first place! hee,hee,hee.
Love the colors in that vignette. They match my new decor!

Some days I just wander around and do the same thing. I don't accomplish anything, but my head is swimming with ideas!

Thats when I turn on an old movie and give up to doing nothing. Your day was productive a great photo and a start to cabinet cards. Sometimes productivity is overrated..lol
we recieved 1/2" of snow yesterday in N. Alabama and it was 13 this morning...love it!

Donna, don't feel bad. Some days I don't quite find my groove either. Have a great day! Twyla

You sound like me. I walk around fiddling and puttering with yarns, fabrics, or embroidery floss all the time and then by the end of the day I think to myself all the projects I could have worked on instead of just day-dreaming. I, too, have a million ideas floating around. I like to think of it as a creative work in progress, at least in my head!
