busy hands = a happy heart

A couple of months ago I took a leap of faith and signed up for a class I have thought about taking for more than 30 years. I signed up for a pottery workshop.
Yep, I said it... pottery;
with all it's funky 70's cat bowls and planters happiness. It's something I've always thought would be a ton of fun to do. But the thought of what I'd make held me back.
While I love to play in lots of different mediums, the last thing I need is to start anything else. There aren't enough hours in the day to do everything I want to do, not to mention how the costs add up. Then I discovered Vanessa's work. I love how inspiration works; the thought of (or vision of) something beautiful gives me the courage to move forward, come what may. I have to say I'm so happy I finally took a class, and I'm thrilled with my little lace plates as too!

Something else that inspired me was Anna's work. For the past few weeks I've been working on a bright new summer quilt. I'm nowhere near finished with the hand quilting, and a few of my rows are a little off center, but I'm looking forward to napping on the hammock under this once it's done. Fortunately our summers haven't been crazy hot for the past couple of years!

I've also played a little with making mercury glass,
and resin paper,

and I'm still painting.

Like I said, so many things I want to try, play with, and discover!
So that's what I've been up to. I hope you your summer is off to a great start,
and I hope your hands are busy and your heart is happy!
