I guess I haven’t written a post in a while… I’ve been questioning my purpose of this blog, and if it serves anything more than just a place to show my work.
So, I’ve recently decided to give pattern-making a shot, and share some tutorials here. I’m almost finished with the Wood Dragon EPP Hexie Pattern, and the Squid and Jellyfish will be following as well.
Along with the patterns, some friends suggested making little short videos to demonstrate some of my techniques with hexies… and I’m pretty excited to try it. Still a ways to go before sharing with the world, but it’s in the works – I know there are a few people out there who have been patiently waiting for me to get these patterns out there (thanks for being so patient!)
I do have a quilt finish to share: The Root Chakra Quilt is finished!
I showed this at the last PMQG meeting, and I was able to tell a little about it before my nerves erased my voice (I have such a hard time speaking in front of people)… but I didn’t really share much in details.
As I was sewing this quilt, I reminisced on old friends, and some of the poor decisions we made as young people. I also thought about how far I’ve come: working from homelessness to home-ownership via my own business… and about how much further I need to go. Art therapy – this is definitely an emotionally charged quilt!
