The Art Of Procrastination


A year from now you may wish you had started today.
~Karen Lamb

I have found my way back into my studio this past week,
working on a few publication deadlines.

Hibiscus dyed

This little pile of dyed pink loveliness is a result of using dried Hibiscus.

Last peek...

and here is a small peek of a project in the lay out stage before I start the sewing and attaching.
I tend to put off working on projects till the last minute, however once I get working I really do enjoy the process so much I just can not help but ask myself
"why do I always put it off till the last minute?"
when I fully know The best way to get something done is to begin.
I will keep these words in mind a little more:

You may delay, but time will not.
~Benjamin Franklin


One more bit of news in the March/April
you will find my poetry scarfs and little about my process and meaning behind them ~




Tomorrow is often the busiest day of the week.
~Spanish Proverb

Ruth Rae, I look forward to looking at your scarfs and article when I get to a book store that handles this magazine! We live in a small town of less than 3,000 and the nearest bookstore to handle these magazines is about 180miles away! My husband and I are going away for the weekend for our anniversary....so, I hope I can steer him to Sioux Falls where a big bookstore is that has this magazine! I love words and anywhere one can put them!!! Thank you for your creativity!!! deb

Ruth Rae,
Oh what a relief to hear you say there is a slow start. I drag my feet before a project but once I get going I love it and want to do more and more. I don't know what that is but the mood has to be right. Beautiful work!
Sincerely,
Machelle

Dear Ruth Rae,
Woe! I am in love with the concept of Poertry scarves - simply wonderful! I am a mere dabbler and I love what you create - how inspiring!

Hey Ruth - I too suffer from procrastination - I believe it is an Aries trait (my b'day 3/29) - am learning to embrace it hoping that will cause it to feel claustrophobic and go away :) Gotta go - on a deadline for tomorrow - after procrastinating ...guess I didn't embrace it enough....oh well, there's always tomorrow:)) Reva (los angeles)
PS taking 2 classes from you at AU in August - looking forward to learning your techniques!
