You Just Never Know

When you will "see" something that gets you thinking.  This scrap of woven blue "something" was picked up on a dog walk in the past few weeks or even months and has been stuck in my parka pocket.  I was looking for something the other day, took this out and dropped it on the Winter 12 by 12 block.  this morning I "saw" it and thought.  This looks like Early Spring.  I can work with this.

I know, from the Painter's Key this morning, that silence is best and talking about what you plan to do is like doing nothing.  But since I still have no idea what I am going to do--I guess it won't hurt to give you a peek into how things happen around here.

The sun is shining this morning. I was up early, had a good breakfast, one cup of coffee, mixed up two cans of tuna with mayo for lunch and made a quart of green tea and lemonade to take to work, along with the 6 cups of water that is now becoming my daily habit in the greenhouse.  Down another half pound.  Actually, down 1.5 overnight because yesterday I went up one.  My ring is loose this morning so no water retention.  I think the ring is a better indication of how the new menu is going than the scale.

My fridge and the cupboards are turning into magical items.  I think there is nothing in there to eat and there is.  It seems like I have needed to do grocery shopping for days, so it's a mystery to me.

So, I was eager to share the new quilt idea with you, I know you love it when I actually produce some art. I kinda enjoy it too.  Perhaps I have "turned the corner" and can now be more productive in the art department again after this long lapse in desire and interest.  Art can be that way.  Mysterious.
