First of all, I’m thankful that I have a creative life. Every once in a while I run across someone who has no kind of passion in their life – nothing to spark their interest. It always amazes me how they can live like that. Everyday life is filled with the mundane and annoying. Without quilting, I would get very cranky.
New this year, I ‘m thankful for my studio. That was reinforced when I could just close the French doors on
the mess my latest project, and my
thanksgiving guests were none the wiser.
It truly is a blessing to have a designative space to create.
I’m thankful for all the great teachers I’ve had over the years including but not limited to the late, great Joan Colvin, Jeannette DeNicolis Meyers, Cynthia Corbin and Elizabeth Barton. Not only are they great artists but they're also great educators - which is an art within itself. Without their patient guidance, I would still be making 9-squares – not that there’s anything wrong with making 9 square – some of my best friends make 9 – squares! grin
I’m thankful for my creative family who understand and support the need for studio time over a home cooked meal. On the same note, I’m thankful for my critique buddy Sandy whose friendship has added a sense of connection that quilting is suppose to have.
And finally, I’m very thankful for Off the Wall Friday – which I swear I wasn’t quite sure was a good idea at first. Without it and you all, I would never keep creating 12 months a year. Its kept me inspired, focused and entertained.
So what are you thankful for??
Ohhhhhh and what are you up to creatively?
