The Weight is Lifting


My studio is getting cleaner and cleaner. The weight on my shoulders is getting lighter and lighter. I took this carload of fabric and supplies to my daughter's art teacher this morning. She seemed very thrilled. I was thrilled too.

Next week, I will have a new video of the studio. No, it won't be as cute and pretty as those in Cloth Paper Scissors, but, hey, that's life.

Please remember that I am shedding my studio of fabric, so please check my Etsy shop for yardage, fat quarters, squares, and flower, fruit and veggie cut outs. I'll be adding several items each week.

This weekend I am going to visit my family in my hometown of Roanoke, VA. We will be including art by attending the Open Studios Tour. It is so exciting to be let into the homes and studios of artists. Hopefully, I will return home ready to create.

I think I'll be in the mood for orange.

Thanks for visiting my blog. See, I know what you mean! I understand the feeling of lightness when you not only clean but also pass on what you no longer need -- but I do have to balance that with cleaning as a method of avoiding or interrupting my flow. Your quilts are wonderful. I love your work!!!

Spring cleaning for the studio; mine is in need also. It would feel lighter. I really like the orange work; very strong. I love orange.

How beautiful!

Open studio days ARE fun!

Did you go to PSU, Kim? I went there many years ago, in the 60s.
