Blogs are interesting---sometimes you just don't have anything to say, and sometimes it just seems like too much effort to load pictures, make comments, edit, and then hope that when you push the publish button, all will not be lost.
I'm not sure if I am just lazy or overly busy....both I suspect. Still, if I expect folks to find something of interest here, then the onus is on me to produce something that might be of interest.
So first a follow up.....This is the final result of my soy wax/thread play experiment. Not quite what I had imagined it might be, but I think it is adequate for what it is....
I extended the grid into the quilting, added some pebbling and a bit of other fill.
This is what I have finally come up with for a quilting design on my next quilt.....I have one more border to put on and it will be ready to load on the machine....If my quilting comes any where close to looking like this, I will be pleased, I think.
This quilt has to be ready for our guild show in June, and some time between now and then, we will be moving into our new house...oh, fabrous joy.
I haven't a clue regarding the design yet, but something pushing the envelope in terms of non-traditional...maybe influences of the Arts and Crafts movement or the new "modern quilt" movement.
I love these colors....they are so serene and peaceful---to counteract my life which is awesomely busy and hectic. These colors offer respite, and rest. A time for reflection and introspection. A time for wondering and seeking.
I won't get really serious about this project until after we get settled a little...maybe later this summer. I also have another detailed work I want to start.....classic red and white, but not classic in style. We'll see how that turns out.....
And so, life goes on.....Soon, very soon, we will be getting into our new home and then you will have to suffer through looking at pictures of the house!
If an entry once a month constitutes a blog, then I guess this is a blog. Otherwise, perhaps it's just a way for me to record what is going on in my life!
At any rate, life is good. In fact it is better than good as I continue to travel on my journey in this magnificent craft of quilting.
May your Spring days bring you a sense of renewal and growth....
Ta Ta for now....Peggy
