In My Image Maiden, Mother, Crone

I decided to no longer wait for the challenge this quilt was made for to get posted on line. I listed it this morning in my Etsy shop, you can see it in the side bar to the right, and I am going to try to upload a larger image for the blog. Just in case the girl sells and she isn't in the side bar any longer! That or I have listed new stuff and she would be further down the page on my Etsy shop.

This quilt was made in response to a challenge, SOST, "The Sisterhood of Saggy Tits" from an online quilt forum I belong to. Unfortunately it has been many months since we all finished our pieces and sent the images and artists statements to the coordinator and we are still waiting for the challenge to be posted. My decision was both economically motivated and just wanting to show it off. I have refrained from posting images or listing it as I thought it would have more impact if viewers could go to the site where the other challenge pieces were listed. Also, due to the unique subject matter it would make a bigger impact.

I have also been making and listing more of the Trees Outside My Window series. One sold and 5 others are now listed in my shop!

I have yet to bind the 2 'nearly' finished pieces. Miss ADD decided to work on ACEOs as I have sold several in the last week and can see it might be a good 'production piece' as each is truly unique, the similarity being only the size 2.5 X 3.5 inches.

I am going to go get a few things done before the day job yanks me out of the house!

My daughter will be here this weekend for winter break, nearly a full month! I am very excited! She often has a 'project' in mind for us to work on. I'm not sure if there is one this year, but no doubt we'll have time to come up with one!

Too little time....

I have been keeping myself a bit busy! The emotional stresses of the season are in full swing. I am keeping the 'monsters' at bay as much as possible, but it does interfere with my creativity and my ability to get as much accomplished as I would like! I have finished Conan's queen size machine quilted snowflakes quilt! It is big enough to cover his toes! That took a lot of energy & time!

I finished and submitted the EPU:2 piece,
It is also the image I used for my free gift 'sample note card' being sold in The Little Black Box, which goes on sale December 5! Check it out, a very cool idea! I am hoping to see an increase in traffic through my store, we shall see.

I have also invested with another web site that does hosting of e-shops. There are a lot of awesome artists being represented there! Check it out!
Browse by category - Art in the left margin to see my ad! I also am listed in the Arcade as well as The Holiday Shopping Village!

The Design Style Guide is another web based 'shopping mall' for interior design items, last post I neglected to post a link so here it is!
I don't have a profile image there, not sure how to go about it yet and not taken the time... the elusive time...

I have sewn about 12 more holiday theme table toppers with poinsettias as pentescopes, 5 sided stack & slash pentagons. several are layered ready to quilt. Two are quilted ready to bind and I haven't had the energy to finish them. That is this weekends project!

I best go to work or I won't have funds to keep making the stuff I love!
