Barriers

February 25, 2015

It’s funny how easy it is to put up barriers – to creativity, to acceptance, to progress. In this case, the barrier is to my sewing room.

We’re not talking the Great Wall of China. This isn’t crime scene tape or a picket line, this is a piece of plastic tarp, kindly put up by the remodeling crew, to keep dust out of my sewing room. Still and all, I have not been able to cross this line.

Part of my reluctance is due to the condition of the room.

The chaos, the chaos

The chaos, the chaos

I had to move some stuff for the guys to get access to the attic crawl space. Now I have to put it back to get access to my work space. I sorted enough stuff to reach my sewing machine, but there is still a barrier in my head to face. Once I quiet my inner kindergartner (the one who wants to follow all the rules), I’ll get back to being creative. In the meantime, I’ve been sewing on strings of beads.
