My next art quilt?



It has been a busy weekend. My surgery is not until this afternoon, so I will go off to the hospital around 11 am. I expect to be in about 4 or 5 days, and I doubt I will have any time with the computer. This weekend I spent some fun time with family and did lots of errands. By late Sunday afternoon I was filled with nervous energy that had me doing yard work and cleaning the house like a madwoman. At one point Jerry looked at Andy (our son) and said "Your mother is possessed". Relaxation tapes just weren't doing the trick anymore.

I also spent a little time with the sketchbook and have three possibilities for projects when I get home. I am hoping that I will feel well enough during my recovery to spend a lot of time creating. I like these three, so at least one of them should make a jumping off point for my next art quilt.

You have a series in the making for new quilts!

You're at the hospital now and I pray all is going smooth and as it should. Will look forward to hearing from you as soon as you're able.

Oh those are LOVELY, Jenny. By the time you read this, you'll be out of surgery. Hope you're feeling okay - give yourself permission to not feel like creating for a while.

I love these stain glass looking trees - hmmm maybe there is something like this in my future journals... Hope they become art quilts as you suggested =. PP

I think these sketches are wonderful, & I'm glad to hear you're doing well. As a nurse I saw arteries & veins in the sketches. I did a psychology test with inkblots one time & saw mostly xrays & CT scans of body parts in the images. The shrink said he could tell I was a nurse & that I had a sense of humor from my responses. Paid $90.00 to find that out! I could've told him that for free!
