who said this: I don't remember when Art Every Day Month was last year, but I'm going to use March's designation of National Crafts Month to justify (not that it needs justification) this upcoming month as AEDM.danabren
Sewing is Art. Poetry is Art. Cooking is Art. Embroidery, quilting, knitting, dancing, metalwork, home redecoration, gardening, flower arrangement, tying a ribbon, writing an essay, piling rocks in a charming way, coming up with a series of new curses after smacking your thumb with a hammer. Anything involving the creative process is Art. Obviously, the Art Police won't come rapping at your door if you miss a day.
So, having no idea it was Nat'l Crafts Month, yesterday I spun some Romney from an old project I'm trying to finish up and pack, filled up the spindle and wound it off. Still have some more to go on that.... also wove 3 inches on a scarf.
And tidied up a few bits here and there... more of that coming, as I try to sort out just how many projects I should have out. I'm realizing just how much "empty" space I need in order to work, especially for drawing, and I have way too much stuff out, of all kinds. More books, decorative items, crafts, dishes, etc. will be getting packed -- enough to be able to move some furniture out of the apartment. One of the effects of spending more time meditating, I suspect... the which I do while soaking and working on muscles, tendons, etc. One of the reasons my soaks in the tub take an hour is that somewhere in there I stop working and slip into still meditation :D
