It's really rather fascinating how a developing piece can talk to you. Even a decade ago, if someone had said something like that to me, I'd have thought they were off their rocker and now I willing admit that my pieces talk... and I listen... and it's strangely wonderful.
The hem was finished Sunday night. Yesterday, it took me all day to read a book that would normally have taken a couple hours. Other than to check email, I didn't even go in the studio. There's a lot going on in what I refer to as the mess of the rest of my life. It's intriguing that there are two groups of people: those who are more interested in me staying married and those who are more interested in me staying sane. The commonality of the later group is experience with chronic illness and its ramifications. Sometimes, you'd rather not have things in common.
If I don't sew today, I'll have nothing to post tomorrow and - LOL - hopefully that's incentive enough. We'll see. I'm still trying to figure out the collar and no great ideas are appearing although I have been debating turning the pleats on the sleeve cap the other way and that would give me some place to start. Maybe the collar is waiting patiently.
Talk soon - Myrna
Grateful - the later group
