I am blocked and it is a frustrating experience. I go through this once or twice a year and I know I am not a fun person to be around when it happens. It is almost always the same and I guess I really should call it a bottle neck rather than a block. My problem is not that I have no ideas - it is the opposite. I have so many ideas and so many projects on the go that I am paralyzed by trying to do them all at once. A couple days ago I decided I needed to sit down and write out all the things I am working on right now. There are ten different projects. I then listed next steps for each one and I am now attempting to move them forward slowly. The problem is that I start on one and within five minutes I am thinking about how I would rather be working on the next and so on. I am also trying to get my work organized as I have several pieces that need to travel to various locations at different times over the next few months.
Today I am driving to Billings to hand deliver a dozen quilts to Brooke for the Big Sky Quilt Show that takes place starting next week. I will traveling to Florida to see Mom and Dad during the time the show is on so Brooke will look after getting my stuff displayed. Yesterday I spent several hours dyeing some raw silk and some rayon for an ensemble I want to make. I have had this idea in my head for a while and I think it will be great if it turns out like I envision.
I am waiting to hear back from "Stretching Threads" to see if my 3-D pieces have been accepted. They announced on Monday that they sent out the notifications so I should know in the next day or two.
