The past few weeks have been wonderful. A wonderful time spent with family and friends, eating great food and laughing. There was the Night of Seven Fishes with my Dad on Christmas Eve, Christmas Morning with my niece and family, and a Turkey dinner my Mama made that was absolutely another level of amazing I have never seen before.
Now it's back to work though and I am excited about that. I have so many new ideas, so many things to make. That is what makes the time away so wonderful. It rejuvenated me and made me ready and clear for the new year and new inspiration! So here I sit, in my studio facing a new year head on. I sit at my sunlit desk and look at my new calendar (by artist Kim Jacobs). The illustration for the month of January is a studio, a sewing machine on the table. bolts of fabric and a cat. I find it fitting for all I see in the unmarked days are possibilities and opportunities that only a new year can bring.
