Working for me takes many different routes. Sometimes, it’s giving a lecture, sometimes it’s teaching, at other times it’s drawing, writing, stitching and designing in the studio. In all honesty I wouldn’t have it any other way – I have a lot of different roads I want to explore right now and I am indeed already going down that path.
The computer saves me a lot of time but I often find the day moving too fast if I happen to spend too much time sitting in this chair in front of the screen. I tell myself it’s a necessary appendage Sometimes I find myself justifying why I use my computer so much. But darn it, it’s so much part of what I do. I’ll never forget a computer guy, friend of the family who decided to take half of my apps off my laptop….. “You don’t need these” he said. I was furious and needless to say he doesn’t work on my computers any more. He also knew nothing about the art of quilting and how I used those applications.
To get everything done I need to spend a certain amount of time to each project. (An hour or so on one then move to another) I have a number of projects on the go at one time
The list this week I was working on the Gabriella piece.
I also bought to life a project I had been thinking of as I traveled.
In creating this journal, everything needs to come from India… so this paper was purchased there… I will also use stamps and fabric printed there.
