Currently….

Currently on the loom – cloth to make clothing.  Blues.  I’ve been drawn to working in monochromatic colorways.

This is what’s currently on the quilting wall.

The colors are much more vibrant than the photo shows.  It’s hard to get a good photo because my studio is so small, and so crowded. I have to stand with my back up against the sewing machine table to get the photo of the wall on the opposite side. It’s probably only about 5-6 feet I can stand back.

I will start piecing this quilt tomorrow.  Then I will sandwich it and quilt it using a program on my sewing machine.  I can choose the pattern, hoop it, and let the machine sew it.  I hope it works well.  It’ll be my first experiment with it.  If I was smart, I’d do a small wall quilt to test it first.  Not my style though.  ha!

Went to the Art Center today.  Spoke to a friend. She suggested I bring in one or two of my wall hangings.  They haven’t sold at The Loft in the other town, so maybe I’ll give it a shot.  Can’t hurt, right?

I’m trying to focus more on the thing that bring me joy.  Weaving cloth, then making clothing, brings me joy.  I will continue to work on this and be more consistent with making.  I am a maker.

Thanks for checking in.
