Getting Organized in the New Year
The new year usually brings a bout of getting more organized so I can sew more efficiently. This year I am focusing on my sewing table.The right side just doesn't have enough room, I'm always knocking things in to the trash can that sits right next to the table. On a trip to Ikea I bought a small wooden shelf which my husband attached to the end of the table.
This is my view of the shelf from my chair.
I liked that shelf so much, I went back to Ikea and bought another one to add to the end of the fabric cabinet. I also bought the metal baskets. I bought four, I wonder what I did with the other two? Handy little things, I think I'll look for them!
My quilts are colorful, graphic, vibrant and joyful!! I use color and texture to explore the glories of nature. Realism or abstraction, are used as best fits a theme or concept. I enjoy the challenge and excitement of translating my vision into quilts through a rich variety of fabrics, gilding and embellishment.
I find such joy in being able to express myself through quilting, that I'm not comfortable without a needle in my hand. Quilting is my life's work and a wonderful one at that.
The best quilt is always the next one.
