My head is full of ideas. It always has been. How to rework a pair of curtains, lining a pleated skirt, knitting on the bias, a bias cut shirt panel, hand painted scroll work on our old walls up north ... My home is quiet for a spell and I am able to chew on my thoughts and really develop an idea ... and then it's gone.
I was lamenting to my husband that I needed to write all this thinking down, but my attempts at keeping a sketchbook had failed. More than once. My husband, ringleader of techies (not to be confused with leader of the ring), carries a handful of 3 x 5 cards in his shirt pocket every day (thus, he always wears shirts with pockets). Why not use 3 x 5 cards?Brilliant.
Now I keep vintage planters all over the house filled with blank cards and a writing implement. I jot down my idea and put it at the back of the stack.
