Let the Celebration Begin
Let’s celebrate all things big and small. It’s the season of light. If you live in the northern hemisphere, as I do, then you know the importance of bringing light into your life as we cope with the short days and long nights. If you are fortunate enough to live in the southern hemisphere this time of year, then you may be out enjoying the sunshine. Either way, evergreens are featured, whether brought indoors or as part of the scenery.
One way I celebrate the end of each week is by doing a drawing. It makes for a creative break from my studio. I started this habit when I first heard about the 100 day project. Once I finished 100 daily drawings, I modified the project to be a bit more realistic and now create one drawing a week. I post these on my Facebook and Instagram accounts.
OK, I barely need to celebrate beginnings. There is something heady when I decide on the next project. I can’t wait to begin. It is the middle that can feel onerous. However, I’m still on a natural high of settling on my next project. It is another thread painting of that diva, Lola. She will be auctioned off once more, this time for SAQA’s annual Spotlight Auction.
I like to liven things up with a bolder background. Once again, EQ 8 to the rescue! I was able to quickly draft a background, position where Lola will appear (center rectangle) and get the templates for piecing. Every piece in the spotlight auction is 4.5″ x 6.5″, although it may be oriented as a portrait or landscape. Clearly Lola is a portrait.:)
I’m doing a happy dance. It’s time to celebrate the official finish of my 2022 Rainbow Scrap Challenge quilt.
