It Passes So Quickly

One day, for some reason, I read some my older posts. As I read, I noticed a common thread running through many.

I often seemed to be in a dither, “My shop is empty. My oh my! I need to make more quilts, More! More”. There weren’t enough hours in the day to  accomplish everything. 

It occurred to me that perhaps I was making  excuses for myself…hum, Could I benefit from an examination of my time management.

There are only 24 hours rs in any given day, no more, no less. The thing is, everyone has the same 24 hours. How do they manage? The answer is  scheduling. Planning ahead for the allotment of time they wish to devote to each activity.

So the question I have for myself is “How am I going to use my 24?”

In any case, here’s a few more quilts to show you. The first is The Red Egret. I noticed that I had never posted photos of  the finished quilt. The  other is “Color Melts”

It’s a silk painting, with the slightest amount  of thread work to add a touch of detail. It’s mounted on stretcher boards. It is quite long, 44″, making it hard to photograph the entire builtin one shot. I divided the photos into 3 sections. I included the links to my website and Etsy shop in case you might be interested in either one.

About Myself & My Approach To My Art About Myself & My Approach To My Art I can't remember a time in life, that art didn't play a role, in one form or another. But my primary focus as an artist, has been painting. Close to 20 years ago, I was introduced to quilting & quickly became passionate about it. However to create a quilt there are some necessary steps that have to be followed, this obviously restricts some of the creative choices. I began to miss the creative freedom possible with painting. Since there are only so many hours in a day and I had other important things going on in my life, I had to focus my interests. When I discovered mixed media art quilting, it was a great fit. The combination of quilting techniques with painting and other art skills opened new creative directions to explore. I was home! It's the creative process that holds the greatest attraction for me. I love starting with a tiny seed of an idea; vague and blurred around the edges. Then I follow where it leads. My approach is more of an instinctual one. I usually don't do much pre-planning. My creative choices are made as they present themselves, based on my gut feeling. 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 that 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. Personal Links
