Buckle Up Baby

We have been back from our sojourn West for several weeks, but I don't seem to be able to get back into a creative groove even in my studio.  I have had many other items on my 'must do' list which took precedence over my regular duties.  Still, I missed creating.  I decided that when time was available I'd just start cutting and piecing and see what happened....keeping in mind that I do have to have inventory available for sale at November's Shoreline Arts Trail's Open Studio Weekend.

The first thing that came together was a baby quilt.  Because it has a transportation theme it might work as one of my contributions to Sisters in Cloth's next exhibit:  On the Road at the CT Department of Transportation's Office in Newington CT this July.

I haven't decided which side should be shown, if, indeed, I do decide to offer it to the exhibit.  What's your thoughts?  Obviously that will make a difference for putting on the sleeve to mount it.  And, the label, too I guess.

Or maybe I should just forget this for the exhibit...go for something all together different and more artful.  Hmmm....thinking....thinking....slowly.....

Oh, oh...there's more news!  Miyajima Nocturne was juried into Connecticut Women Artists Members Juried Exhibit!  June 1-21 at The West Hartford Art League.  The Opening Reception is this Sunday.


  1. The designs are really sweet and playful! It looks like it's oriented correctly for hanging just the way it is. I too am having a disruption in my creative flow and looking to get my mojo back. It must be that in-between seasons slip... I'm creating an outdoor work space so if that doesn't get the energy flowing I've got other problems! You'll have to come for a playdate when the space is ready!

  2. Hi, Diane. Cute baby quilt and your nocturne piece is lovely, soulful even. Hope you can get back into it soon!
