Week in Review 2017 - 06/02

Tips, Thoughts and Techniques:

One of four similar containers
on our balcony.
Can it really be two months since my last post?  I greatly admire other bloggers who post several times a week even when travel and life add to their work load. Since my blog focuses on my studio work, something I can't physically do when I travel, a hiatus became necessary. Yesterday was my first day immersed in the studio since mid April. What a treat! I had forgotten how quickly the world falls away and I become engrossed in creating. 

The first of six blocks for my current
work in progress.
The disruption due to travel (I was away from home for 32 out of the last 45 days), coupled with gray, overcast skies left me longing for color. No surprise I selected the hot pink petunias to fill the balcony containers this year. It is also why I selected jewel tone hand dyed fabrics for my current project. Color both brings a smile to my face and relaxes me.

I'm looking forward to spending more time in the studio and plan to focus on the following:

1) Work on Picking Up the Pieces #4

2) Finish Picking Up the Pieces #1 and #3

3) Pot(s) made this week

4) Free motion quilting practice

I am now linking up to two blogs on Fridays. The first is Nina Marie's Off the Wall Fridays and the second is Free Motion Mavericks.
