I have decided that I am happiest when I am creating something. Look at the time, it is midnight, and I'm not even tired (which I will pay for in the morning when I have to get up to get to work).
I have been working on multiple creative projects. Most currently, I am juggling between a few;
1. Creating a skirt for the Instructor's Exhibit at Convergence, an International Weaving/Dyeing/Spinning and Fiberarts conference that takes place in late July 2010.
2. Developing patterns for garments for a Design Challenge I am involved in (for the same show). I have been paired with a weaver (I am the designer), and together we are creating the fabric and garments using yarn that was provided. I cannot post or talk about the details, as this is a "top-secret" challenge, and all things are to be kept under wraps.
3. Writing an article for Threads magazine. This involves sewing and testing ideas I have viewed on ready-to-wear clothing in store windows.
Tonight I worked on a pattern using Garment Designer, and listened to Beethoven's Fifth Piano Concerto, and his Fifth Symphony. It doesn't get much better than that.
