Why I’m Still Cleaning

Perhaps the question should be why I bother. I took a workshop with Vicki L. Johnson and was shown what is really in my heart – clutter.

This is how my side of the table looked after one hour. We were taking notes for the first twenty minutes, too. Then we started working.

My table buddy, Sue Stephenson, worked diligently and neatly. I did not. After two hours, my side of the table looked like this.

I admire Sue’s courage – never once did she show fear at the piles massing at the border.

Sue gave me a great caption for the photo above, but there was no room to pull out paper and write it down.

Despite the mess, I spent a thoroughly delightful day painting, stamping, and printing fabric.

Luck and wisdom!

    Hmmm. Have you met my husband? If I don’t stay constantly on alert, our kitchen table quickly begins to look like that. So far, I stay amused, but we’ve only been married for 14 years.

    So I have to laugh. What’s wonderful is that you always come up with something beautiful. There’s evidence that your brain is right on course.

    BTW, guess what I picked up in Victoria? A tree pendant! Can’t wait to show you on crit day!
