This is a quilt I designed using my mono-printed fabrics, upholstery fabrics and some batiked and commercial fabric. I photographed this on a carpet in the library right after I finished sewing the binding. The quilt falls in a rectangular pool of light that left the edges in shadow.
Each letter is satin stitched with a yellow gold thread, too.

I've got two pieces I'm focussing on and I'm in love with how they are turning out. Posting them here will allow me to see them in a different light.
I'm really happy with how the day flowed today. I've got to keep the momentum going.

I'm starting off with fusible fun. I'll be getting my creative juices flowing over the next few weeks and the outcome will be quilts!
I'll try a little bit of this, and a little bit of that. Every little bit helps.
I've always known that you are an artist if you think art, but I also know you're more of an artist if you DO art. So, Let's do art!

What a commotion I am causing as the water jumps over me.
Not seen by the naked eye, this rock is slowly being moved by the force of the water... as am I by my fate.
It will all smooth out soon.

“It is when you lose sight of yourself, that you lose your way. To keep your truth in sight you must keep yourself in sight and the world to you should be a mirror to reflect to you your image; the world should be a mirror that you reflect upon.” ~ C. JoyBell C.

Same stump, different angle.
The decision lies in choosing the one viewpoint most people would never think of. Therein lies the key to innovation and unique creative thought. Starting here, with these two stumps, if I went back and shot several more of the same subject, I would eventually transcend the object to a new and different viewpoint to share.
This is the concept behind doing a series. It may be my time to explore this avenue in my work. I have known about this, but never felt compelled to explore it. Now just may be that time.

|Rainbow marriage, rights for all|
This is the result of the background of my blog disappearing. What happened to it? IDK Recent blog updates created havoc.
I could get used to this cleaner look though. It's not bad.
My work may even show up better! I hope so.
Gotta go to work now.
Enjoy your day.

|Dinner out with quilting friends|
I hear myself saying this a lot these days. What does it mean? Well, I could call it an excuse for my neglectful behavior on things I should be keeping up with.
But I also think it is the mantra I use to convince myself that I will be okay through this transition.
I find the comfort of hanging around with quilting friends a good remedy.

Spring is on it's way. I know it and I just can't wait.
