I started blogging in July of 2008 with the oft traveled road blog. My life has changed a LOT since then. What hasn’t changed is my love of creating beautiful things … what HAS changed is the amount of time I have spent doing it.
In April of 2011 I took on the job of Outdoors writer for my local newspaper. At the time I was also writing various features and going on photo assignments for the paper. I was so busy with my various assignments and my fishing and hiking and birding that I didn’t have time to get into my quilt studio. I had started another icon, the archangel Raphael, but haven’t laid brush to gesso’d wood in ages. Creativity has’t flown out the window … it had just reshaped itself into bird’s wings and whatnot.
Recently my work for the newspaper (and my pay) has been cut by two-thirds … which will make my upcoming vows of poverty O so much easier to take, I’m guessing.
Would you like to meet my 10 new sisters? Here they are, aren’t they beautiful?!!?
I haven’t started a quilt project since April of 2011. I’m itchy to get started again, so I stopped by Sister’s Fabric Shop on Sunday after church to see Bobbi. She got me started with an English paper piecing project. I started sewing last night. Yay!!!
This morning I found a smaller needle to stitch with so the thread doesn’t show as much. I don’t know where I am going, but I’m going to enjoy the journey, I just know it.
