Apparently I'm not focused or industrious enough to have quilty things to post about regularly.
So, here is something else I obsess over.
Watercolors! Once or twice a year I drag out my paints, get all inspired and sign up for a class (did this a couple of weeks ago).
Invariably, things don't go well. My work of art is, well, not a work of art. I'm not happy. I quit. Maybe this year will be different. I need to either learn to paint or give my supplies to someone who will.
So, I've actually finished one painting (this one) that I like fairly well. I'm well aware of it's shortcomings, but I'm calling it done & I've moved on to the next one.
True to form, the picture I'm working on right now isn't going well, but I think I've learned that you have to keep going. There's an ugly duckling stage and you just have to keep painting and sometimes you get it right. If not, you have scrap paper. At least I think I'm learning that.
If my readership was above the occasional low single digit, I don't think I'd have the nerve to post this. Comments and constructive criticism would be welcome (as long as they are kind).
Back to quilting or something fibery next time.
