Relieving Pressure


Some days my head is just so full with ideas that I think I just may burst. Of course, that is always when I'm at my busiest and may not have the time to get it all out. Last night was just such a night. I worked all day, detail stitching a store order and a few things for my next show. It was midnight and I was ready to turn in. With sore fingers and tired eyes....I drew for another hour and a half. From one idea to another, I filled several pages. Sometimes a design would multiply into several more. Oh! The excitement! Finally, after a couple false starts, I made my way into bed, trying to claim a bit of it from two stretched out pups. Lying in bed, more ideas came out to play and I was caught between wanting sleep to come and trying to keep my brain from forgetting those ideas until morning.. well, a more normal morning time at least. I did bolt out of bed and begin where I left off. I feel better now and excited for these new friends to take shape. The agony however, is knowing that as I head back to the sewing machine, my deadlines come first. Oy! the pressure mounts as I struggle with what I need to do and what I want to do. Back to work......
