Tips, Thoughts and Techniques:
|Much of this week's studio time was |
spent on FMQ the last couple of
Deconstructed Sunrise panels and
then attaching the panels to each other.
I know I have the reputation of being well organized and a hard worker. Is this deserved? Yes, and no. What you see is what I choose to share. The writing of a weekly blog encourages me to come to some point in the process that "shows" as an accomplishment and photographs well. I surprised myself this week by stopping at good point for me, but less than pretty point for the blog.
I have also been pleasantly surprised by my growing infatuation with Deconstructed Sunrise. This is absolutely a method, palette and concept I feel a need to revisit time and time again.
All these surprises and a few more have resulted in the longest my studio has gone without having my fabric shelved and the remaining detritus stored or trashed. For someone who thrives on clear surfaces and well organized drawers and closets, it is good to know that sometimes, just sometimes I can let go.
Surprise, surprise I even accomplished things this week. Here is how it went:
|My studio as it looked Thursday night. Note that the |
work table and George's table are becoming covered
with all I "need" and some things no longer needed.
Yes, my studio is huge. I am very fortunate to have the space.
2) Start the finishing work on Deconstructed Sunrise - Done!
3) Free motion quilting practice. - Done!
4) Post the number of days I have worked in my studio in 2015 - 55.5/126
5) Perform a random act of kindness - Done!
What surprises will I have in store for myself next week? They wouldn't be surprises if I knew. No surprise, I do have a plan. Here it is:
1) Continue the finishing work on Deconstructed Sunrise
2) Free motion quilting practice.
