Archives for the month of: February, 2007

While I was doing the laundry this weekend, I realized how much black was in the wash. It made me realize that I have been wearing a lot of balck lately. Usually I do that when I want to be invisible; when I don’t want people to ask me to do anything else. That is this time. I have too much work and too many demands. I am glad business is booming, but there has to be balance. I need to find it.

St. JCN told me that there is a poem that says that planting a garden is expressing hope fo rthe future. She helped me to plant and replant my bulbs in October and they are starting to come up. They look better than they have in several years and it is nice. I greatly appreciate her help.

Someone asked me what I was planning on this weekend. I probably have to work, because we have a client who is a PITA x12. I want them out of my hair in the short term and want to get rid of them as fast as I can in the long term. Ideally, I would win the lottery this week, which is 25 million and would do me nicely. I keeping making lists of the things I would want to do if I won the lottery and I can’t really get above $3 million, though not working a regular job is kind of an unknown amount of money since I am too lazy to figure out how much I would need to live every month, especially if DH wanted to quit work as well. I figured I could just write down the tangible things and have someone else worry about the other things once I won.

I have been thinking of quilt classes to take – Paula Nadelstern and Joen Wolfrom are going to be in the area – but I decided that I have lots of quiltmaking of my own that I am excited about and want to work on, so I will just take PA’s class in May and work on my own stuff. There are a few UFOs that I want to get finished so they are not hanging around and I don’t feel like I have to feel guilty about starting something new. Not that I do! Guilt being so unproductive and all…. 😉 Still, I would like to have some of them off my plate just to clear psychic/creative space in my mind. So, in between work I will work on the backs of the various quilts I have finished recently so I can get them to the quilter and get them done.

I decided not to move Artquiltmaker Blog, but will post to this blog as well. There are things that I sometimes want to write about that do not fit into Artquiltmaker Blog. So I will post them here. This blog’s name will change slightly, but I haven’t decided what it will be called — something like Artquiltmaker Unleashed or Artquiltmaker’s Evil Twin. We’ll see.

ARtquiltmaker Blog on WordPress is being renamed AQ on the Edge. It will take a new direction that will probalby encompass quiltmaking, but will also discuss non quilt related topics that interest me. If you want to stick to quiltmaking go to Artquiltmaker.
