At my desk there is a piece of paper called Deadlines, Etc. Every month I update it to reflect the current month and the two upcoming months. It’s taped right where I can’t miss it. And where it’s easy to draw a big red line through completed items. This is the first time in a long time that there isn’t anything on the third month. And until yesterday, there wasn’t even anything on the second month. It feels weird. Getting off the hamster wheel of all those past deadlines is taking a bit of effort. In order to help me slow down and work at a more reasonable pace, I decided to start a new project. I’m not exactly sure what these triangles are going to turn into. But I do love the possibilities. Yesterday afternoon, I dove into my Parson Gray stash and started cutting. By the time the light was gone, I had a nice stack of EPP triangles.The morning’s activities included laying out the AMH EPP project to see just how many of these diamond stars I still need to make. (The answer…10. Plus 36 single diamonds.) Barring unforeseen circumstances, I might actually start piecing this project together before Christmas! Or not. Only time will tell.
And I forgot to post the Color Therapy block of the month for October!! So here it is. The colors for the month were Golden Saffron and Tango. No one does these two colors better than Kaffe. Warm and happy, this block wants to be the life of the party. I particularly like the way the piecing is arranged in the nine patch center. It creates the illusion of a lattice of brilliance over a beautiful red orange star.
With any luck, this week will be the calm, slow week I was expecting, but didn’t get, last week. Or not.
