I am going to be doing a quick blog today because I am in the process of drawing and there isn’t much that I am prepared to show you today. In addition, I am working on an article (which I will also talk more about later on) and doing some general organizing in the house.
We had a beautiful weekend here. Although it is much more autumn-like than summer. I think those three warm days that we had in the past month were considered our ‘summer’ and now we are already on the other side of the season. Nevertheless, it is pretty. Autumn is my favorite season, so if we have two autumns, so be it.
We did make it to the beach this weekend for just a bit. It was on Saturday evening and it was quite foggy and the tide was just beginning to move out. The waves were crashing and the ocean looked rather angry. But it was peaceful and beautiful nonetheless. The sandpipers didn’t seem to mind, as they scuttled across the beach from one pile of seaweed to another, searching for a tasty treasure.
I plan on getting a couple additional Damask patterns completed and placed up on the site. Hopefully this will happen by the end of the week. I need to remain focused and really work on these designs and complete them. I am also planning another newsletter when that occurs, as Keith has new patterns to post as well.
So the week is fully planned, and in between I need to do some basic organization to keep things in order. Taking small steps along the way prevents complete chaos later on and is a good habit to follow. I always say I am organized out of necessity. Taking the time to be that way saves me much time in the long run.
With that said, I am off to work. Today looks to be another beautiful day here. I wish you all a wonderful Monday.
