10-10-10 ... And Complete Satisfaction

Today is one of those numeric anomalies that happens rarely... the date is 10-10-10 and that's rather special.  And how timely that a special date was today because it was such a feeling of complete satisfaction to spend the last couple of days creating again and finishing up a creation that had been sidelined for far too long.  I completed the Medicine Bag today for Hsiao Hsien's Birthday that will compliment a full sized bag made of the same vintage Chinese Tapestry that was commissioned several months ago and completed... before my hands gave out.  There are still two Pillows to be made from the Tapestry remnants for her and its refreshing to know that I will be able to continue working on my Art and finishing up these promised pieces now.  I hate to keep dear people waiting on their orders and no matter how patient they are, I'm always impatient to create my pieces and not be sidelined with disability or medical problems that prevent me from the creative process or delay a piece being started or finished.  I love what I do and it gives me great Joy to create and a thrill to see the recipient of my Art appreciate and cherish it.  I only wish I could be a more prolific Artist... demand is always higher than my ability to create pieces entirely by hand... and yet I'm reluctant to use machines since it would tie me down to creating only in a Studio setting in front of a sewing machine.  I don't know that I'd have the same fulfillment or inspiration that flows from my hands doing each stitch in whatever setting pleases me most... usually outside in some ideal setting... or even when inside moving from place to place as the mood and ambiance suits me best.  My small sewing kit makes it convenient to travel light and take my work anywhere anytime... I kind of like that... a Free Spirit rarely likes to be tied down to any one place or forced to work strictly indoors.  I get restless if I don't have the freedom to take my Art and create anywhere or anytime I am in the mood to devote time to it.  And creative energy flows more freely without constraints and pressure... at least for me.  I'm all about feeding my Soul when I create... and the nourishment is good... so it has satiated me to be creating once again... and I'm completely content and satisfied... a perfect 10 on 10-10-2010, now that's got to be numerology at it's best *wink*...
