A Skirt

Going back to graduate school hasn't worked well with my creative life.

Unfortunately, writing papers and readings have sapped some of my inspiration.

My creative projects have been sitting. Waiting.

But over Christmas, I picked out some new yarn and started a scarf.

This weekend, I made an impromptu visit to Ikea and ended up making a skirt.
In under 4 hours.
That seems a reasonable project to take the edge off academia.


















(Perhaps this skirt would have been better as a tablecloth?)




Maybe I need to get back to the blog too?

Great skirt...I wonder if you can show off that cool lining without being too risqué?! I definitely hear you on the graduate school-waning creativity connection! You are almost there, though!!
