Trying hard.

For months now life seems to take place as if I am caught up in a thin fog and am constantly trying to clear it away so I can see and think properly. I start this and I start that. I have been working on a quilt and yesterday decided I could put it all together. But when I laid all the pieces out it looked all wrong. I tried many variations but then found I had two quilts in the making. Trouble is I promised myself I would use the fabric I have . I have enough of the red to finish the darker quilt but would like green for the crazy one and I haven't any. I do have a sheet and some green dye ,I might try that.
Then there is the water colour painting,if I try and paint in the garden the wind seems to arrive or it gets too hot,the flowers loose their petals befor my eyes,so I have taken lots of photos and am going to try painting from them.
I have been asked to decorate the school hall for the village childrens Christmas pary. Its enormous so I explained to the Maire I would need help making the things .I had to attend a village council meeting and he said to everyone I would make a wonderful fantasy. Mmmmm! Its the time and organisation that scares me right now.
The garden needs attention its so overgrown, thats to happen next week I hope.
Plus we are going to England soon for a few days. We have recently come back from Provance where we had a glorious time and will write about that next time .


  1. My advice, for what it's worth, would be to try and accept that life is like that sometimes, the kind of drifting, starting something then starting something else. Just trust that the fog will lift and that we are not superwomen and everything cannot be done at once. The garden can wait, other things can wait. Just do what you can when you can. Things will come right and you'll be able to see clearly soon xx

  2. I do understand how you feel, but you have produced some really lovely things during the 'fog'. Just go with it and it will clear. Remember most people only ever accomplish 20% of what they set out to do, so you are doing really well!x

  3. Your painting is fabulous!!! Your Poppies are very very lovely. I love the little doll too. That is the one thing that I have been wanting to do that I haven't done. I did join Jane DeRosier's blot site so hopefully I will be able to do the tutorials. Have a wonderful day!

  4. Hi Bois-Fleurie:) I have found a lot of treasures on your blog. You make beautiful paintings, so delicate, and dolls and other things I can't name because I don't know the name even in my native language;)
    Thank you for nice words you left on my blog :)

  5. Looking really interesting all these oieces on the floor, what a wonderful creativeness! I tried to make a quilt many years ago, and sewing the separate pieces went very well, but when I started putting the long lines together, I realised it seemed much easier than it actually is. Nothing was straight anymore, and the unfinished quilt is still somewhere in the back of the cupboard.
    Looking forward to seeing this finished :-)
