i've spent all week painting. when i have no specific deadlines, i like to go from process to process - painting to hooking to sewing. i put in long hours each day so it's good for my mind and body to "mix it up". i can hook and do some hand sewing outside and love sitting out in the garden as i work. i'm putting a push on now to finish the work for the fog forest show (hooked mats and painted objects) so i've been at my painting table from early morning to well into the evening. my body suffers when i do this. stiffness and alot of tension in my neck. i look up and wonder where the week has gone.
