Hard at Work 10/03/2013 19:35:06

Busy busy week. Monday was my birthday, and also studioQ meeting. I spent the day with fiber friends, and then Brian took me to one of our favorite restaurants for a birthday dinner. Tuesday I decided it was time to get to work on Tuning Fork #13. Here's a peek at my progress so far: Lucky number 13! On Wednesday afternoon I decided I needed a break from the black and gray, so I pulled out three quilt tops I started this summer, and reworked them a bit. These two are slightly better: Figure Study #5 Figure Study #3 This one I pretty much mangled. Death by rotary cutter: Figure Study #4. RIP Today I did some office work, and my assignment for my goal setting class with Lisa Call . It's a great class. And I spent some time in the garden with the turtles. The weather here is a little cooler (still in the upper 80s, but tolerable) and I'm trying to get the garden into shape. Fall here is a beautiful time -- after a hot, dry summer everything bursts into bloom once again. And the nights are much cooler. Kind of like what we called Indian Summer in Ohio. And then, sometime around Thanksgiving, the leaves turn and fall. I'm looking forward to the cooler weather!

Trinity Valley Quilt Guild 2013 Show 09/20/2013 17:03:00

I've just returned from the awards ceremony at the TVQG annual quilt show. Tuning Fork #12 won first place! And, to make my day complete, String Theory won second, Ruins #1 won third and ModLogs won an honorable mention. There were some beautiful quilts in the art category -- honestly, I wasn't the only entrant. I am totally overwhelmed by my awards. And, honestly, feeling a little guilty. I am currently taking a class on goal setting from Lisa Call, and during our first week we are examining our "be do have" list and our underlying core values. I have no trouble with the "do" list and the "have" list, but the "be" list has me stumped. What am I? The other day someone asked me what I do and my answer was, "I'm kind of an artist." Why did I say that? I have sold quilts, exhibited in galleries, been in national quilts shows, even won awards in national quilt shows and I still say that I am kind of an artist. Why do I feel like such a fraud when I say I am an artist?
3 Cities #1 09/16/2013 17:03:15

I finally finished my quilt for the SAQA Texas exhibit, "A Texas Experience." Here it is: 3 Cities #1, 12" x 12", 2013 No overtly Texan, is it? As an abstract art quilter, I just couldn't do something realistic. I tried, honestly, and it felt very false. So instead, I thought about my life in Texas and came up with this. The artist's statement to accompany the quilt: I'm not a native Texan, but I've been here for 31 years. The three squares in "3 Cities" represent my three Texas homes. To the left is Midland, hard edged and very bright. The southernmost city is Houston, softer, wetter and a very exciting place to live. The square on the right is Fort Worth, my current home, a city I have fallen in love with. If you live in Texas, are a SAQA member and are interested in submitting a quilt to the traveling exhibit, click here for the prospectus . The postmark date on entries has been moved to September 30.
