1. What is sitting on the edges of your work table?

Having just completed two major projects, my work table is clean except for a pattern for pants that I am fitting for myself.  It is time to design a new art quilt!

The most exquisite moments are when I am alone in the studio creating.

I do not have rituals other than just do the work, every day.
