My sewing room, ironing board and sewing machine are under siege, covered with pencil, eraser, poster board patterns, used and unused tracing paper, a silk liner glove that needs repair and DH's dirty clothes hamper. A card table fills the only free space in the room. It is a mess, but when I sit at that table drawing, erasing and ultimately creating designs I am lost in contentment. In spite of the frustrations, I can still find peace as I temporarily let the world take care of itself while I take care of me. Those infinitely small particles in my brain are coming back into line as I scribble my way to a design that I think will complement the quilt.

create order before I begin to sew.

Taking a photo of this I see that I don't like the way the grids cut across the corner. I have since draped the feathers over the grid so the almost straight line is broken. I have plenty of time to review and revise as I stitch in the ditch. This tracing paper will be pinned to my design wall.
Sew some happy seams this week. I wish you time for contemplation to keep those quantum particles under control.
