Glimpses of Things To Come

    When someone blogs consistently and then they are gone, just what are they doing? Don't they know I am waiting to see what they are doing? And why don't they show me what they did today? I think I blogged about this before. Where am I this week?   I feel kind of gone from here- this little blog-right now. On temporary leave.

      Well, quite typically I show you everything. The good , the bad and the ugly. And I even tell you when I ziplock things.  Bags of thing that don't work.  But right now, while I am processing all this information-from three different classes- in my old brain, I just feel quiet. And kind of vulnerable. Because what comes with knowledge, is just how much you really don't know. Really don't know.  Part of me prefers the ignorance and the absolute abandon that comes with ignorance. But part of me is tired of ignorance and wants to move on.

      By no means am I stuck. My mind is just full of what can be. And different ways to do it. Just figuring out why some things work and others don't. And figuring out what I may want to work on.

    And figuring out how young I really am in the whole scheme of art and quilts. Not at all depressed about it-by any means. Just realizing it -that's all.

     Tomorrow-stitiched shibori and my son's speech meet. His voice is changing and I hardly recognize it.

     Be creative, my friends! It's almost spring and time to take off my quilt in the snow from my winter banner.

  1. I like your idea of trying out a lot of things; you can see what you like, and what you don't, and sometimes you like something, but it doesn't feel right for you. Enjoy the spring weather!

  2. It's all part of "the process" to figure out the direction your path as an artist. There's no doubt that you'll find it. It just takes time and awareness.
