I need more of this.
I've been working in the studio just listening to classical music this week, just quietly in the background, so I can still hear the birds and children playing down the road. I manage to stay in a creation zone this way, rather than hearing lots of voices all at once on other stations.
Sometimes the radio is just an endless din. No matter what station is on. That's when I know I need silence. Even a short half hour fast walk in the bush will clear that up for me. Then I'm back again. The concentration taken to create my work is more draining than I realise, I can kill four hours solid and not notice time flying. Of course, my watch is still stuck on 7:46 am and has been for a couple of months, so I don't look at the time much. I kind of like it.
I'm emerging from my hermit house to go to a local craft market this weekend, so I've been pretty busy in making-mode. However I managed to get something finished to put into my Etsy store.
Inspired again by the sea, hence the name. Another beach wedding, perhaps? Who knows... I love this fabric, just a smither left too... which I'll save, since I save pretty much everything!
