I come from a long line of sign writers and am happiest with a brush and some paint! Add
paint to fabric and I get really excited!!

Lately my days have been full. I have little free time and seem to be going at top speed trying to fit everything in that needs to be done. When I am not physically working toward meeting deadlines and completing projects, my mind is racing, full of lists, reviewing procedures, reminding myself of what needs to be done and what takes top priority. I would like to say what keeps me that busy and consumed is of incredible importance to more than just myself, but when I stop and really look, the truth that my busyness is a creation of my own always comes back to me full force.

Paying off bills and putting funds towards future adventures has certainly played a part in what occupies my waking hours. What keeps me awake at night is what I want to be accomplishing in my creative side of life. That is the part of my life where I tend to dip in and use my allocated time for things other than creating. I am sure some, if not many, can relate.

I have been completing some longarm projects, but I hestitate to share them because I have yet to find the best photo spot for my work. Areas in my house and yard are either under exposed or over exposed. I can’t seem to hit a compromise. I know the quilts look great but my photos don’t really give them the due they deserve. Finding the best lighting and location for shooting will continue to be a priority.


  1. I feel too like I'm racing around this fall. Wrote about it yesterday. I read something about it lately too, how we speed up time as we age because we want to do so much more. if we want to slow time, we have to do less. Not so easy.
    I've been trying to find good light too. I discovered that outside Is the best which is totally impractical. I want to look into the price of a light from the photography store here.

  2. On the treadmill of life! I can surely relate!

  3. My life these days makes me feel kind of breathless sometimes. I have so much on my plate with work and upcoming events. I am hoping the SAQA retreat in two weeks will give me some time to sit back and relax a bit. Once I get there, of course! The prep is always time consuming! Anyway, motoring on and trying to keep lists, some sort of schedules and time for getting outdoors seems to help.

  4. Oh, I know you can! You must be in the midst of jet lag right now!
