What I have Been Up To

Time seems to be flying by. I am really taking my artistic goals seriously. So far this year I have sent entries off to 3 quilt shows, 1 art show and a Quilting Arts Magazine challenge. I created 2 pieces for the QA Rock-on challenge and I must say that this was so much fun to do. I can't show them here yet but will as soon as I can. Lets hope one gets selected for publication.

I am also working with someone on my website which is also very exciting. This is something I have wanted to do for about a year so I am really feeling good about moving forward. Also trying write a class but that is going slowly.

I just started a new piece a couple of days ago so it is really in the beginning stages. It is based on the photo below. This picture was taken on the Knotley River in NC and I love this tree. I had a 1 yard piece of hand dyed fabric by Laura Wasilowski that I cut up for the water and dirt area of the bank. Sometime it can be so hard to cut up some of these special fabrics. I am excited to see where I go with this and I will keep you posted.

Congrats on taking those steps toward your artistic goals. Sometimes it seems like the hardest part is to work up the nerve and then follow through with the submissions. Good luck to you!
