I've been captivated by Candy Box, sewing along happily, adding to the design wall daily; then the inner critic showed up. Do you know her?
"Why are you making this? You should be doing (fill in the blank). You're wasting your time."
"These aren't your colors, where did you get the idea you could work in this color scheme, it's not you so knock it off."
"Get out of the studio and go do something worthwhile, enough of this already."
Where to these jibs come from? I was tired, I knew that, I'd worked out in the yard in the heat of the day; but that's no reason to jump ship. I went to bed and decided things would look better in the morning.
I'm still sitting with the critic, she was with me at breakfast so I've been doing other things besides sewing. Is this really about being out of work and still feeling a lot of "shoulds"?
