A Little Focus on Off the Wall Friday

 Back!  Finally!!  Thank you all for the prayers and kind thoughts!  This week I entered back into my real life after spending three weeks helping my parents out.  When you're gone that long, you're normal routine starts feeling a little surreal.  Four days back and I'm still not quite into the swing of things.  My good friend Rhonda said that all I needed was a little focus and routine.  She's so smart!

Just to show you how little focus I have, I was cleaning out my room and found the latest book by Jennifer Sampou called Ombre Quilts.  I've been quietly collecting ombre commercial prints over the last 3 years and I've been itching to get them into a project.  I thought, "I'll whip up one of these quilts to get me back into the swing of things!! "  The dose of reality came from  Rhonda who reminded me that my little girl quilt still needs quilted and wasn't I working on my English Paper Piecing windmill quilt.  sighhhhh ... it gets better...I walk into my studio and see the half done art quilt for my masterbath.  OMG  how could I forget these!  It's like my mind just blocked it all out.  

Focus and back I'm going into my studio to get these projects done before I start a new one!

Now onto.... Things I Like.....

With us cutting the cord from cable, I've been watching more free videos on YouTube.  This last month I discovered a great channel called ...Great Art Explained in  Minutes.  I never took an Art History class so it seems like there is so much to learn and BOY does these videos teach a lot.  It's amazing what is in a painting once you start looking.  I can highly recommend you take a look!

Glad to hear all is well with you again, Nina-Marie! I can definitely relate to your selective WIP Amnesia Syndrome. I need to drag out my sampler UFO and get it back up on my design wall again because when it's out of my sight, it's WAY out of my mind!
