Quick: Gotta post something before July runs out.
I admit it: I’ve been obsessed with the Tour de France.
I’m getting really nervous because the US Open is coming up. I think I could become a sports tv junkie.
I put the borders on the first quiltlet (Polka Dot Jersey) in what I hope will be a Tour de France series using solids and some crazy polka dot fabric inspired by Sandi Cummings’ Thinking Outside the Block book and her quilt at The Cotton Patch, Using Leftovers.
I feel as if I can’t post any pictures because nothing is finished (or close!). A convenient ruse?
I started this blog in the hopes that it would encourage me to finish things and hopefully get positive feedback. Instead, I just keep starting things and I haven’t been posting because I have nothing to show.
I’ve been thinking about the following quotes:
If you know where it’s going, it’s not worth doing. (Frank Gehry from an article in the New York Times how every movie and rock star wants to be a designer.)
And this from Sandi’s book:
The need to be a great artist makes it hard to be an artist. The need to produce a great work of art makes it hard to produce any art at all. (Julia Cameron)
My goal this week is to finish something, anything, take a picture of it, and post it: throw caution to the winds.
