Packing up one's studio, especially not knowing where or when it will be unpacked, is tortuous. I already need about ten things that are in the back of our storage pod. I miss free access to my art books whenever I feel the need to reference. But they say that there is much to be learned from creating with constraints.
The fact that my husband was unemployed for 7 months during my pregnancy means that we cannot afford the help that we were planning on hiring, so I am making art between caring for my daughter full-time. The embroidery is excellent for the stop/start aspect of my current life, and we are blessed with a happy baby, who gives me lots of work time during her naps and cooing play sessions.
