Think about this.....

...the only thing scarier then reaching out to the unknown is settling for that with which we are comfortable.

Outside

The only reason I came into my studio yesterday was to empty the trash. While it was a cold, damp, misty day yesterday, I needed to be outside and do some work. I wasn't in the most creative mindset and manual labor always gets my head back into perspective so I took it out on some post-winter chores needing attending.

Tuesday I finished this quilt.

Batik Blocks
And then I re-dressed DW with this quilt top.

Orphan String Diamonds and Horses
I'm trying some dot-to-dot quilting in this piece and not very successful I might add, but it's very new to me and like everything unfamiliar, practice will improve my skills.

After completing half the quilting on the above top I moved along to a charity quilt kit I picked up last week at guild. I completed the top and am having a hard time with how I'm going to quilt it. It's just kind of hanging out here on my pressing table waiting for me to come up with some type of divine inspiration I think.

I feel like I need to work on my blog design (again). I'm bored with it and actually want to shorten the name of the address. I have no idea how to accomplish this but either I delve into this today or very soon it needs to be done.

Meanwhile, if it's not a quick fix and if it proves to try my patience, I'll move along to learning/practicing more dot-to-dot and getting that charity piece on the machine.
