Lost Sleep...felting dreams
I go through these crazy phases often when I have work laid out on my table. I find it hard to get to sleep and if I wake up at any point in the night, I can forget about getting back to sleep. My head is swimming with ideas and my tummy churning with concerns for upcoming teaching engagements. I woke up this morning (4 a.m.) and I was dreaming I was spinning with a drop spindle...something I have never done and didn't think I wanted to do. I got up and went through my calls for entry file and my teaching file and my exhibition file and assured myself that I can only be concerned about my next event and need to put the others out of my mind until my calendar tells me I need to think about them! I am now strictly making pillows and pods to prepare to teach them and have the added benefit of having them to sell on the studio tour, or wherever. I made one last night and today and I am getting the process I am going to teach nailed down. I have also booked a private lesson in Montreal in September with hopefully more. I love Montreal and will gladly break my fall/winter teaching break to see students there. Well, Kettle is boiling and I am going to set up another pillow to keep the ball rolling! Hope I have sweet dreams!
