New Year is the traditional time for making changes...and here's mine. I'm not going to make any art for a year...and I'm not going to get het up about it. I have already given away a significant part of my stash, with more to go, and then I start on the non textile 'stuff', the paint, etc. Whether I like it or not, my body craves rest... so I'm going to rest, body and mind.
I'm also going to get organised. My theme for this year is a place for everything. If it doesn't have a place, it leaves the building for a charity shop, a friend or whatever... as long as it doesn't stay here. That's about simplification; I'm called 'artmixter' because I've always done lots of different things. No more. Clearing out will, I hope, clarify what I really want to do, so that when I'm well enough, I'll be able to do it, and do it well. Whole heartedly.
So...that's the plan. No blog for a year, either.
