masquerade

There is happiness
it shows up
and greets the unbeknownst
with inspiration.
Mistress caught, bestoweth unto me.

Reading at a Table

Picasso

Surrealist Theory was based on a simplistic understanding of the writings of Sigmund Freud re-crafted for the use of poets and visual artists. The canvas, one of several similar compositions Picasso painted of his mistress, is a poem by a man in love.

Find time

When all you have is time

what keeps you from giving time

all you have?


I am a “modern quilter”. I learned how to hand-stitch traditional blocks but have ventured into my own fabric expression, the wildflower i am. 


My next project is a depiction of my daughter via Picasso inspiration and the mention of her considering adding blue highlights to her long, dark hair. 

A piece of her 3rd grade art, the background of the quilt, chose the fabric colors for the piece. (Yeah, my fabric yardage whittles away, slowly.)

To get back to my question, I will tell you what is keeping me from giving quilting time, myself. I have so many projects brewing. I’m dabbling in producing a mixed-media soul journal, I have tons of pinterest pins standing by to help with that, not to mention my “Promise Garden” where the weeds have taken advantage of the rain. Then there is the problem of loved ones who have rumbly tummies. (Thanks Pooh!) 

So my fabric sits idly by.

I love the colors. Ooooh orange! Yes, I am a fabric-scrap junkie. Gazing at the materials gives me goosebumps. 

Happy quilting, writing, mixed-media journaling, gardening, cooking…. I’m tired. Sorta! 🙂
