I'm participating in Art Every Day Month. I figured it would be a great kick start to creativity. There's nothing like making a public commitment to get you going!
So yesterday was the first day. After working just a little late, then coming home to fix dinner for my family and do a couple of loads of laundry, it was 8:30 and I was really tired. What to do to fill my art quota for the day? I have looms to warp and projects to start, but I have to admit I just didn't have the energy to start anything.
So I dusted off the spinning wheel - literally, it had been a while - and dug out my "current" project. Can you call it "current" when you haven't touched it for months?
I've spun up a fine singles of tussah and merino blend from Treenway and another of baby alpaca, both purchased at SOAR many years ago. Some nice quite meditative plying just the thing!
I had just enough time to ply up one skein before bed time. Here it is - still on the niddy noddy:
