For many years, my early morning stitching has been my #morningtea post on Instagram. This is my current favorite cup for tea (or coffee). The butterfly has been my symbol for ages reminding me that life is full of changes. I like change. It feels good to rearrange the furniture, weed my closet of old clothing, or make plans for the future.
I've felt stagnant recently. A feeling of just going thru the actions - making a to do list that is almost a copy of the previous day. It's time to re-look at my butterfly theory and try something new. What is my #morningtea, really? It's been doing the same thing, over and over and over. Drink tea, stitch, post...
It's not that I need a drastic change. It does seem that my routine has become, well, routine. I am still writing in my journal every day. Some days it's not much more that writing the date and temperature. I find time to garden, dye fabric, art journal, stitch, etc. It just seems that it's being done without passion. I'm ready to change that. I have a year long project on the work table, a commission work for my dearest friend (my sister), plenty of ideas, and enough ideas to last a life time. I hope to find the motivation to jump in and produce!
Off to the dye pot... I clipped all my marigolds yesterday.
