Paralyzed From the Brain Down - April 3, 2020

To say the past weeks have been weird is an understatement. I have been trying to work from home, but it's difficult. What's worse is that I'm home more, but am completely unable to paint! I'm paralyzed and I can't figure out what's wrong. My husband says all psychological problems are inherently fixable if you can articulate what the problem is. So when I can't articulate it, I feel worse, like it's only ME standing in the way of feeling better. If only I were smarter.
One fun thing is that my siblings and I are all talking more online. Yesterday we had the best conversation because one never-available-when-we-group-call sibling actually took part! Unfortunately, they also got mad when I took a (lot) screenshots. I touched up one of the screenshots to show how they should really feel about me. 

I'm thinking of downloading some filters for my next meeting at work and looking like the potato lady I can't stop laughing at this picture. 

And laugh…

B is for Better?

I'm plodding along with this new scrollwork alphabet based on vintage cross stitch patterns. They are about 80 steps each. I made this one last night while watching "Miss Potter" - probably my favorite movie right now. I love seeing movie sets of artist's studios. They are always so beautifully put together and romantically lit. Right now my desk has three folded books, three old moldy books to make into Halloween designs, two trays of beads in different stages of doneness and a plastic drawer with my jewelry-making supplies - most of which are spread out on my cutting mat, making a special order.

Neither beautifully adorned nor romantically lit. Still, that's life!
