November Sunshine

Fern-Village-and-siding

Well, back to work, it is.  I’m going to bind this Village Quilt with some of the pretty African fabrics that my friend Sarah recently sent me — the one with the red, to pick up the accent color.

I’ll be showing (and hopefully, selling) at Newton Open Studios this weekend —

November 7 and 8
at Newton’s Cultural Center (on Nevada St.)
11 am to 5 pm
FREE.

But, since I have more quilts than I could possibly show in the booth space allotted, I think I’ll post this one in etsy tomorrow (link on sidebar).

I STILL can’t believe I found these nut ornaments on sale last January — they are the perfect scale for my felt mice!!

Working for selling vs. working to work

Here’s  “Global Warming IV” in progress.  I am ‘letting’ myself work on it, even though I am in the throes of show preparation, and more dedicated than usual to being prepared.

Pricing work, delivering flyers, arranging press conferences, creating press packets, attending meetings, running to Staples, ETC! was making me very cranky…

Can’t remember when I spelled this out, but finding it with my camera yesterday seemed rather perfect.  I WISH I had a magic want to eliminate the baggage I carry around, and to make me immune to others’ baggage.  But, I don’t, so I “let” myself work on something that won’t be ready for any of my holiday shows, that will be too big for most of my market, and may NEVER sell.  But what a tonic!  The tasks of piecing and pressing, looking, rearranging, kneeling on the floor… so completely absorbing, I can forget some of the daily irritations that seem to abound of late.
