New Year's Resolution

All righty--my new year's resolution is to post at least once a week. There--right out there where folks can see it.

Currently I'm on the last step (well, second to last if you include finishing the edges) of my all-by-hand commission. It has taken longer than I expected, but I am pretty pleased with the results. However, Sharon gets to see it first, so no spoilers here.

I'm also working on sketching an idea a day. Unfortunately, I sketched my first idea four days ago and my second idea two days ago, hence "working on." The sketches are very small (a little bigger than a trading card) and will eventually become whole-cloth quilts of various sizes. This will allow me to focus on the sculptural aspects of the quilting--and make a number of affordable works that will help me refine my technique even more.

I hope to offer Quilting Basics at Heavenly Stitches again this late winter/spring--I'm just having trouble finding a day of the week that I have free for 8 weeks (the duration of the class). I'm on it, though!

Next post: sketch photos and perhaps a little peek at the commission and, hopefully, class dates.
