Not much blogging going on here- there hasn't been a lot to blog about. But I am well into this month's Interpret This piece, and so far relatively happy with where it is going. This photo really does lend itself to interpretation on a number of levels. So here's your sneak peek at a very small part--
I have my background parts down, now on to the myriad detailing. I think I will end up doing more stitching before I sandwich this than I will quilting. It feels good to be so far along early in the month!!
Our WAQ group met yesterday, and got to hear all about Houston from Suzanne who spent four days there. All the winners were traditional quilts- a switch. And nothing new or exciting. Some vendors were peddling items that were ridiculously expensive for what they were. Don't know if I'll ever make it to Houston, but it would be nice to make it to the Long Beach show one day.
I've been thinking a lot about what I want to do next year with my art. After listening to Suzanne, I just think more and more that I need to forget about classes and just do the work. I'm even starting to question book purchases- I looked at Gloria Loughman's new book yesterday, and didn't buy it. It was beautifully done, but had no real new information in it. I have enough resources at hand, I just need to do the work! I'd also like to finish several UFO's that I have, and both my sons have made specific requests. Plenty to think about as I head into the new year, with a milestone birthday very close on the horizon.
