Time keeps going forward, whether you like it or not, with or without you. These days I feel like time is moving on without me. I'm not keeping up good pace and am delayed. On the other hand, time also feels like it has stopped. Perhaps time and I don't share the same clock. Despite going through a rough patch right now, things seem to be resolved as soon as I really begin to worry. Now's not really time to take a break, silence doesn't mean nothing's going on, but there is so much silence it is a bit worrying.

As I crossed the last day of September off my calendar,  I was a bit overwhelmed and exhaled heavily. Looking over the whole month I saw it was full of of notes and doodles and stars. It was an intense month and now looking at a new calendar page, empty with no markings it makes me wonder what lies ahead.

This past week I was kept busy with two new commissions. The first being a journal and the second being earrings (which are near completion). For the journal I tested out a new way of sewing a cover design. I used a quilting technique to create a dye-cut effect on the fabric. I was surprised how do-able it was and am really happy with the look.

Last Wednesday I had hoped to catch the Jean Paul Gauthier exhibition at the Fine Arts museum but the line was insane so I took some window-shopping photographs of a mannequin with some stellar disco ball earrings instead. Other than that, I also did my nails and enjoyed a lovely movie night with some gal-pals while we munched on lactose-free crepes and movie night tea from DAVIDsTEA (verdict: didn't hate it, but didn't love it either).
