Back On Track
Finally, I am feeling back on track. I am committed to making art that can be entered in exhibitions, be included in my annual open studio and be available for this year’s solo exhibition. However, I am also committed to stretching myself artistically and this requires taking on challenges and experimenting. These two focuses can run parallel, intersect or enhance each other. Yet, when they feel particularly divergent, as they have for the past couple of months while I made my way through season 14 of Project Quilting, I feel off track.
A big thank you to everyone who commented on whether the large white star in the upper right quadrant of In the Beginning needed to be replaced or not. Your consensus agreed with my gut. Ditch it!. So, I did and now In the Beginning is back on track. Now it is time to move on to adding some dimension to the foreground through trapunto.

It is time for me to make my next 12″ x 12″ SAQA Benefit Auction contribution. What better subject to return to than Lola, especially since we can’t resist taking pictures of her. Cats have a way of finding the most comfortable and unexpected places to hang out in a home. I will thread paint Lola, as I have in the past and greatly simplify the background. Help me stay on track, by choosing your favorite pose and entering it in the comments section. Here are the options:
- Lola in her condo (upper left)
- Lola getting a drink (upper center)
- Lola on our bed (upper right)
- Lola in the linen cupboard (bottom)
Hurrah! I am back working on my Rainbow Scrap Challenge green blocks. It is fun thinking outside of the box as I create stems and leaves from fabric I wouldn’t choose except for a scrap challenge. It is great to get back on track, finishing up the green blocks, since tomorrow the April color will be announced. Can’t wait to discover which flowers I will be making next based on the selection.
