Tomorrow and Tomorrow



I feel a bit like my mom when it comes to this calendar. She has this quilt she's been working on for about 30 years...and it's this family joke that it will never really be finished (actually, we joke that it will be her funeral shroud at the rate she's going) but that's what you do when you come from a family who can't resist the dark humor.

Anyway-- I feel a little like that, because I keep getting *close* to finishing this...but just can't quite make it all the way. I'm a little closer today...the dates are plugged in. But, the artwork needs to be refined a bit...and the color needs work. The cover needs to be done...and, oh...they need to be printed and bound. Right.

Anyway-- I guess I could always put this out for 2009, but I was *SO* hoping to have my first calendar be for this coming year.

hey, you're not the only one. I was so hoping to put out a calendar this year too, but it's not over yet, I still have a little hope left.

I think you can make it! I just wanted to say how lovely your work is, and the story of how you began is quite inspiring! :)

(Sometimes, I secretly wish I would be laid off, so that I would try that much harder to make a difference.)
