Tuesday, February 26th

I have been on vacation in Florida, thus the lapse in writing. My show looms ahead of me. I still have lots to do but I am feeling rejuvinated. I have a weekend sewing retreat ahead which will be utilized to the max (and hopefully won't max me out!) When I get home (I write this from my cousins in Florida) I will add more images to the page I just had my friend Jack take.
Countdown to show time.
No stress.
Ya right.

Reflection for the Day
A Designer knows she has achieved perfection not when there is nothing left to add, but when there is nothing left to take away.

Ah, I'm writing less, but working more on quilts. I have finished one completely and have the rest (well, except one) backed and batted. I need to quilt them and embellish them more. Did I say, in an earlier blog, that I hope to have six new pieces for the March show? So far so good. I just hope I don't run out of time.
I end this month at a three day quilt retreat. If I don't sew myself crazy I should be in good shape coming out of that. But again, we'll see.
I still have cards to make and send out announcing my show.

My Show:

Continuing Convergence

Norwich Public Library
Main Street

Wednesday February 6th

Good morning! Well, even though I haven't written in awhile doesn't mean I'm slacking. I actually finished one of my new pieces over last weekend. It's a quieter piece, not one of my really exciting pieces but one I like very much. It's made mostly of upholstery fabrics. My daughter says, "It's nice mom, but..." So I need to hang it up and see if embellishments are in order.
