Down to Earth two ways.

Now that my 30” x 70” Down to Earth meditation mat is finished, I’m working up a design for a 36” diameter round mat for seated meditation.  This will actually be an auction donation for my granddaughter’s school.  I will share my progress on it as I go along.

I seem to think that I don’t ever procrastinate, but somehow I’ve managed to accrue a number of rugs and rug designs that are awaiting my attention.  How did that happen?  I made a list of these projects, so I can check them off as they are completed.  Remember the funny saying: “The faster I go, the behind-er I get”?  I’m a good example of this.

I have also said in the past that I don’t have any UFOs [Un Finished Projects].  Wrong.  I apparently need a major reality check.  But those projects will have to remain in the closet until the current list is completed.

With the slowing down of the seasons and the return to early darkness, it’s the perfect time to hunker down and focus inward.  These projects will keep my mind and fingers busy for the winter months ahead.  I love the dark half of the year. 

I signed up for a workshop at Sauder Village Rug Hooking Week.  I always love spending the week there in August.  If you're interested, go to the Sauder Village website and sign up now.  Classes and workshops fill up quickly.

There’s a lot of beauty out there and in the darker months to come.
