I just had to sneak on to the internet and share this picture with you guys. We are having loads of fun on the McCall's Quilting cruise. Today we were in St. Thomas and I went snorkeling with sea turtles...swoon.
“Am I operating at the level of simplicity I want?” Gay Hendricks
For some reason every time I sit down to do the write up for my basket Block of the Month all hell breaks loose. I’ve been reading Gay Hendricks A Year of Living Consciously and that question above was in one of the daily meditations. I just hit me like a ton of bricks. No was my answer, I am not at the level of simplicity I want right now. When I really looked at it I realized that I have been on high creative output for the past 5 years. Really. High. Output. And I am tired. And I am wanting to explore some new things. And sometimes I feel like I cannot breathe I have so much to do. So, and I am really really sorry about this, I have decided to not do the basket BOM this year. I just don’t have it in me.
I know many of you were looking forward to this, which makes it hard. But if I am going to continue to do this work (designing and writing) I need to re-charge my creative batteries for a bit. I sincerely hope to have another BOM next year if I can get it sewn this year. I am not going to stop blogging. I am just going to finish up some projects in waiting so I can bring those to you as well. I am still going to share fun techniques and small projects and my Eat More Plants posts. Just no BOM until 2015. Once again, sorry.
