I've grown used to the waiting, to the long lead times for everything -- all this work that is done in semi-secret and then it's a year or two or more before anything real comes from it. This is just the way of books, and that's where a lot of my mind is right now, but the strangest thing is that it's even become the way for my personal art/projects. I guess I've adapted to these long incubation times so much that now I'm working on large amounts of my own things in semi-secret. There's a big stack of paintings growing in my matchbox studio, and I'm starting them, stopping them, changing them, watching them to see how they evolve and if they all belong together.
So thank you, always, for visiting me here or on Twitter or wherever I'm posting bits & pieces.
As I'm working away, I'm also watching my flowers grow & trying to do some warm-weather sewing before the real warm weather is here. At least I can post dispatches of those things! Things like flowers don't need to wait.
