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 routine....so 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!
So What Have Been Up to Creatively?
