The Joy of Networking
Check out the link to Quiltersmuse.com for a posting re one of my quilts with ‘words’ or writing on it (August 28th posting). I have been catching up on past postings on the quiltart digest and noticed a call for ideas about how people use words on their work and thought of this piece ‘2008 Revisited: Retirement Angst’. It hasn’t been posted anywhere yet and this is just a teaser shot as I would like to exhibit it somewhere before I post the full piece. In this piece I used both free motion stitching and the capability of my machine to program words. The piece comments on the drastic drop of the stockmarket in the year 2008 and some of my thoughts/turmoil about having been forced to reset my retirement plans to a date earlier than originally planned. Any ideas regarding a show where this piece might be welcomed?
I’m working ahead on my Leah Day sample file and have completed the first 27 plus the ‘basics’ that Leah does not include in the series as she feels they are overworked. More to come on this later.
