2004 Journal Quilts
January - After almost a year and a half of under/unemployment, my husband found a job. All I could think of was how relieved I was, how beautiful everything seemed, as if a great weight had been lifted off my shoulders and I could breathe in beauty, once again. I began to play again, to take time to experiment with fibers and fabrics; here, I started playing with Puff Paint (mountains); Angelina and Tintzl fibers (sunset); Shiva iridescent paint sticks, and hand dyes
February - I began experimenting with different ways to portray the “essence” of earth, wind, fire and water, as I developed a new class forwww.QuiltUniversity.com (Elements in Fabric). By the way, QuiltUniversity.Com is no more; it thas been taken over by Ruth Blanchet and is now called www.AcademyofQuilting.com http://www.academyofquilting.com. Oddly enough, the first thing most people comment on how cool the “cheater” forest fabric is, and the peacefulness of the scene, not on all the work I put into the water effect. Go figure.
