It'll be official soon, that summer is here. In Michigan, our forecast is for temps in the 90's for at least the next 7 days. I know the flowers have been blooming for awhile, the trees have been green, and yet I feel like I'm missing it all.
I've been concentrating on getting projects done. Lining up what's next. Sorting. Organizing. And do you know what? I'm burned out.
Oh, it's not that I don't want to sew - I do. And I love the projects I'm working on. It's more that summer is here, and it may as well not be. I'm spending too much time indoors, playing with fabric, and summer is too short for that.
So I'm going to take a break. I'm going to go outside, take some pictures, and take my sketchpad with me. I'm not going to blog, I'm not going to comment [but I might!] and I'm going to go breathe some fresh air. HOT air, to be sure...
I need to work on some of the designs in my head. It's been months since I've shared anything with you. I need to get the creative juices flowing, while the sun is shining, before the grey days come back. I need inspiration, and summer is the perfect place to find it. I live for summer.
So, for the next couple of weeks, it'll be quiet here in Allie-land. Behind the scenes will be frantic activity, I hope - sketching, erasing, sketching some more, much time spent in that happy place of creation, making figurative hay while the sun shines. I'll see you soon, be well, be happy....
