These two blocks were created rather quickly, but now I’m stalled out while I paint and re-shuffle some of the furniture in the studio.

The weather has kept me in the house for the whole week. Although being house bound makes me grumpy : ) I’ve accomplisted a fair amount of work. This week there are two brown blocks. For work that appears so simple, I seem to spend an incredible amount of time mulling and rearranging pieces. Block Five was sewn together, ripped apart, and re-sewn into another arrangement. I like how the “shiny” shows in Block Four. My goal is “Elegant Simplicity.” The fabrics are mostly silks and polyesters.

After a week of cleaning and sorting in my studio, I’ve thrown away several large garbage bags of stuff and feel ever so much better. Going through all that led to surprises and new discoveries. Here’s one:
It’s a mono print on silk that I did in a workshop with Jason Pollen years ago. Now I think I may try to work it, whole or cut up, into a new QAYG quilt that’s been perking in my brain for the past month. Here’s the beginning of a possible block:
Once again I repeat, “I don’t like brown.” What’s this working with a color you don’t like? I did a quilt in browns in 1995 and it was a real winner in AQS, FL Craftsmen, S.E. American Crafts.
ROAD TO THE SUN
I’ve just received the blog stats for 2013 and it shows me, in black and white, what I already know – I’ve been very lax in blogging this year. So, my New Year’s resolution is to be a better blogger.
I’ll start by posting a couple of images of art work that I’ve made recently. These are details of pieces that I’m working on for an exhibit in 2015. Yee Gods!
I might also add that I’ve gotten a new computer with a new operating system and it’s a love/hate relationship. If I can ever get the printer to print images in Photoshop Elements correctly I’ll jump for joy. Perhaps that should be my second resolution. Get the printer and PSE to talk to each other MY WAY.
Wishing you a joy and peace in the New Year.
