What in the world have I been up to???????

I know it seems like I have fallen off the edge of the earth since it has been over a month since I last posted. I think I have just been taking a mental break. Haven't really gotten any new work done even though I have been working on my 'Initiative' piece for the Fiberactions group. Be sure to check out the reveals on 1/15. My quilt is very bright and a little different than what I usually do.

I have been contemplating what kind of goals I want to work on this year. Looking back on the goals I set for 2009, they seem kind of shallow and not really focused enough. One thing I know is that I want to create more art. Last year I spent way to much time writing 2 online classes for Looking back I am glad that I did this since I will have one class running each quarter and that helps support my art. Another thing would to be more organized. I will have to give this more thought and come up some things that are more specific and meaningful.

Here is a picture of a background that I created for a round robin challenge that I joined. There are 12 of us in this group and each month we will each add something to the piece that has been passed to us. This will continue until all of us has worked on each piece. It will be interesting to see what my piece looks like when I finally get it back. This piece is 9" x 12 (challenge requirement), painted with Golden Acrylics and attached to timtex.

Hope all of you enjoyed the holidays and have a happy new year.

It's good to set goals even if we don't keep to them-makes us think. Writing classes/doing samples takes a lot of time-more than people realize.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

Your round robin project will be interesting to follow.

Hi Judy,
I really love the colors in your background piece. Good luck with all your goals for 2010. One thing that helped me to get organized was the plastic drawer bins on wheels.
Happy New Year to you! Hope you're staying warm.
