I am taking a break from clearing a bit of my studio. I am tempted to say cleaning…but I actually know that will not happen. Oh, I vacuum and clean…but really "cleaning"? Nope not happening. There is simply too many 'things' and mountains of fabric about. I organize a bit and then get distracted. Probably only happens to me.
Today I went through shelves of magazines. About 25-30 Australian Patchwork magazines, 8-10 New Zealand, from the beginning Quilting Arts and the like. I have put the Aussie mags aside to offer for sale at our SAQA/CT vending day at our regional meeting on Mar 22. No idea what they are worth. Maybe a dollar or two. I can't just toss them. I HAVE to find a home for them, otherwise, I'll have to keep them. ;^)
I also 'found' fabric that I'll never use to offer in my collection to sell. I probably could just randomly pick every fourth piece in my studio, put it in the bin for sale and never miss it. Hmmmm…..
I am also working on my second commission…but when I come to a point that I need to ponder its direction, I try something else constructive to divert my attention. This week I made another SAQA Conference Spotlight Auction contribution. No, we are not suppose to send more than one. HOWEVER, I hated the one I sent off earlier (check it out…I'm sure you'll agree…it's a couple of posts ago titled Forsythia). I was haunted by it. Even dreamt about it…not a good sign. Here's my 'real' contribution.
I am rationalizing the problem with my Spotlight project…the dimensions are just too small…6"x8" to be matted to 4.6"x6.5". Imagine this matted. It's little.
Okay. Enough procrastinating: Back to clearing a path through the fabric.
