Janice Minyard was the guest artist. I love her work because she is a well rounded quilter. You can see her traditional roots but she is entering the art quilting world. Her machine quilting is just amazing. I am really going to miss her when she moves to the coast this summer. I hope we can visit her! (Diane took the picture. The one I took didn't show her work. Thanks Diane!)
The quilts at the show were amazing. The talent out there is inspiring but I felt really depressed and overwhelmed with the direction of my own work. I feel like I haven't had the time this year to develop into the artist I someday want to be. Time restraints have been a huge issue and I have noticed that more and more I don't have time to get into the studio. With kids out of the house, it should be my time now. So I have decided (with the help of my friend Grace!) to re-evaluate my priorities and quit some things. I want to work on some ideas I have for original work and spend more time improving in the areas that I lack in.
This is Becky and Daniel getting into the cereal and I can only imagine what Katrina felt when she saw this. Overwhelmed I'm sure! Well, this is how I see my life right now. Overwhelmed and not knowing what to do next. I guess you start by disciplining the kids and them pick up the mess. Discipline my life, pick up the pieces and start all over!
