Playing the sympathy card-is it working yet?

I’ve been a slacker lately as to writing blogs. I have too much going on to tell you the truth. Not bad,  just busy. Two  large commissioned pieces, daughter moving out of the country, and on & on. It is all good, but even with my minuscule sleep habits, it’s getting hard to keep up.

I was up late as usual, working.  But that doesn’t mean my attention span was at peak  capacity, well it never is, but on this particular night  it was worse than usual. I was busily sewing along, then all of a sudden, Pain!!!-Oops sewed right through my  finger.

The needle broke off, [I have to interject at this point, that my Janome Horizon has plenty of power, if you’re shopping for one and wondered about that. Don’t you worry that it won’t sew through jeans. Believe me,  it’ll sew through anything!] anyway back to my riveting story… it went in one side and came out the back, and was stuck there with the needle broken off..if only I’d had the where-with-all to take a picture [ You know, to show around & play the sympathy card! See, you’re feeling sorry for me right now…So go buy one of my quilts-I’d feel  so much better!!!ha ha] But my only thought, besides “OUCH PAIN”, was to pull it out, not grab my camera ! Drat, another missed opportunity!

The moral of this sad little story? Watch out for sewing machine needles late at night, or don’t node and drive.

See Ya

Now, picture my little quivering lower lip, a slight tear in the corner of one of my eyes, feeling any sympathy yet? No? Drat, a picture would have been  much more effective! Oh well, I gave it my best shot.

About Myself & My Approach I come from a family filled with many artists.s always played a role in my life, in one form or another. By my teens, I had narrowed my focus to painting.I decided I was going to become a serious painter. I joined the Las Vegas Artist's Guild, at 15, the youngest member at that time. I was totally out of my league, a kid among so many serious adult artists. But to be there, exposed to art in that way was quite an experience. I was enraptured, soaking up. I tried to go unnoticed, just a fly on the wall, mute, a big ole smile plastered on my face. soaking it all up. I tryed to go unnoticed; a mute teenager, eyes wide opened and a huge smile plastered across my face. I’m pretty I was noticed, a mute kid with an enraptured look on my face. I've continued to paint throughout my life. On occasion I've sold my work, but I had more important priorities, one being raising my wonderful children. My circumstances have changed, the kids grown, I had more time and Art was like theorpy for me. I was introduced to the world of quilting & fell in love. I did miss the creative freedom painting afforded. Then I discovered mixed media fiber art, I was home. MY APPROACH TO ART It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. Starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges, I follow where that leads. My approach is an instinctual one. Generally, I do little pre-planning. themselves, my appproacj response js an instinctual one. This approach can lead to quite a few changes in the direction the quilt takes. The outcome can come as a surprise. I love that element of surprise! Sometimes everything just comes together & I think this is one of my better ones. I can’t wait to show someone. I feel like a six year old, running home from school, a drawing in hand, excited to show Mom. At those times. I'm smiling like the Cheshire cat. I’ve had work published in several magazines., which is gratifingvl. But the most gratifying thing is having clients be really happy with their purchased quilt.
