This fine Mess


Finally finished the two BIG quilts that had been hanging on my conscious for so long and blocking any attempt at the Challenge quilt that is due in June. Four hours of interrupted time and a tentative start left this fine mess......Clearly this is NOT it....

I have decided to leave behind the concept of the mum in the print as a flower and take off for unknown waters.....why can't a chrysanthemum bloom under water? Maybe its not a mum at all and has become a sun? or my scissors are calling and you know mum petals could be feathers or fish scales.....

Why is that the creative process for me seems to always start out with the obvious and mundane and then when I am thoroughly disgusted, my brain takes wing and goes off to wild and unknown places.. Is it like that for you ?

It's like that for me when I'm LUCKY!

So nice to catch a glimpse of your studio, Donna. What's the Challenge theme this year?
