I been a little quiet, as you may or may not have noticed. Thinking about where to go, what to do, how to start. I had one of those Ideas the kind that stirs you in such a way that you think the thrill, the excitement of its power, will carry you forward all by itself. But I been . well, I been in kind of a bady way, for a while. Not just jet lag, not just re entry into life back here. Lack of inspiration, lack of creativity, all tied into larger, much more serious sorts of mailaise. was floundering, because my idea didn make things happen on its own, all by itself. But fortunately, sometimes the universe sends your friends to stand by your side when you really need them. Or inspires them to send emails that actually jolt you creatively, and lift you up out of the quicksand you were sinking in. Things that didn have to be anything at all in the end, just something to do, somewhere to go with my hands and my heart. She been doing these amazing mini quilts in her "quilt a week" project, and she suggested I try something similar. I tried, at first, making a small appliqued mug. It was primitive, it was entirely freehand and I didn like it. It didn express much for me, but it was something. I had a needle in my hand again. took a bit, days of marinating, stewing. But since applique wasn going anywhere, wasn starting things for me, I let that idea go rather than forcing it. I waited, and then it came to me . quilting. It is my favorite part of the process of making a quilt, its where my heart is, what stirs me more than color, more than anything else.
