Well, Thursday saw me writing, just not a blog post.
I’ve slowed down in the editing process for “The Echoes.” It was going fine until I realized that I had almost caught up to one of the “gaps” I had left and had to do “actual writing.”
Instead of being creative in my writing, I moved on to my documentation project.
I am documenting my volunteer job with my Quilt Guild. I am their web manager. From just designing and updating the web site, the job has expanded over the 5 years I’ve been doing it, and now that I want to take some time off (to quilt and to write), I am kind of astonished at how much information I have to impart to the person taking over.
I also had some design projects to contemplate (one of which I finished.) So, not a lot of quilting this week.
It would have been a great week for quilting since the weather has been in the lower teens (Farenheit) and single digits. I almost wish I had set up Starina to hand quilt months ago when I thought of it.
Now, of course, it’s Saturday, and there is no food in the house. After days of hiding out and doing “inside stuff” (mostly cleaning), I have a ton of trash to haul to the dumpster. I guess I can’t put off facing the “arctic hinterlands” of New England any more.
Since Everything’s Coming Up Roses is, essentially, done, and the blocks Les Filles… will be done before February, I am working on a new design based on equilateral triangles for Drop and Give Me 20.
This one is based on a quilt by Japanese quilter Isako Murakami. I can’t find a picture of it online, but the book I borrowed from the Guild Library (Japanese Quilts by Jill Liddell and Yuko Watanabe was published in 1988 before pictures were posted to the internet as a matter of course.
And, of course, I have to draft it.
So, pictures of it next week, I promise!
