Well this week, I had a Reality Check and realize I wasn't going to get this piece done in time for Sacred Threads. sighhhhhhhh. Its not like me to miss a deadline when I get it in my head to make it. I'm such a task oriented person, that I can get a little anal. But this week, I remembered that my Word for the 2015 was CONSUMMATE to finish with excellence, to bring to a state of perfection. So rushing this process is counterproductive to where I wanted to go this year.
But with two long studio days, I did manage to get the top done and trash my studio in the process. I mean there were scraps EVERYWHERE. Its amazing how many little bits of yellow, pink, and turquoise can be in one little space. So decided to give it a good clean - put away all the fabric and get ready for the layering process.
With the studio all cleaned for the first time in three months, it seemed to focus me. I'm really looking forward to getting some quilting lines in on this!!
It seems like this project is dragging, but the reality is that its only been 8 weeks from idea to top and that's not all that bad for a 65" by 48" piece. The one thing is that is nice is that it totally skipped the "OMG this sucks" phase. I can truly say that its exactly what I had in mind when I settled on a the design and palette.
So what have been up to creatively?
