In the zone
It doesn’t happen often, but when it does, it is purely magical. Today I was working on a design for Cloud 9’s market booth, and I was in the zone.
Part of it was seeing a design that I’ve had in my pocket since July come to life and look just like I’d hope. And part of it was the gorgeous materials, Elizabeth Olwen’s Wildwood line along with Cirrus Solids in Ocean, all organic quilting cotton. It’s tricky and fun and curvy.
Another part was the soundtrack, a new artist called Hozier. This music hit me just right, with some songs sweet and some raw and sorrowful. Some are morbid and some are sexy. Gah. It was just what I needed to back my creative energy, and it just felt so good. I know that when it hits, if you have the time to ride it, you enjoy the zone as much as you can. I feel so lucky to have had this day in the zone.
Here, “Like Real People Do”
And “From Eden”
But there are others that are more upbeat and more electric. Excellent sewing music.
Love the soundtrack and the super-fly quilt!
Can’t wait to see the end result! Looking good so far.
Those are very pretty blocks! I like that first song a lot.
those wildwood fabrics are stunning! i cannot wait to see what you are making with them.
What beautiful fabric. I can’t wait to see the final project! I may have to put these fabrics on the “must have” list.
Ok, I’m going to try out the songs when I bind a quilt today. Thanks for giving me something new to listen to! Can you do that every week? Oh, how I wish I could sit down with you for a private lesson on how you get such lovely curves…
