SAQA, Studio Art Quilt Associates is a great organization devoted to promoting the fiber and quilted mediums in the Art world and the general public around the globe. Each fall they have an auction event and hundreds of 12 inch by 12 inch quilts made by SAQA members are auctioned. This is the biggest fundraiser of the year for SAQA.

Things are starting to bloom at the studio. I started hanging some of the art I have either collected or created. Most of the contractors work is finished; hanging the track lights, electrical and plumbing for the washer and dryer (dying fabric here I come!), installing a hanging rail around the space... even the addition of a refrigerator for my lunch, keeping dye concentrates fresh and chilling the wine for the opening...
I hope your summer is off to a great beginning as well.
Sometime you get overwhelmed, behind, exhausted. The past week was one of those times. Moving the studio from the house to the new space, preparing for renovation crews at the house. Workmen, deliveries, decisions, inspections, permits -- just all too much! And then today, spent waiting all day long with anticipation of one more thing to get put in place so everyone else can continue...
I will be glad when all the dust settles and we settle into the new normal.
Whatever that might be!
Sometimes the dark creeps in around the edges and all we have is holding onto what we know is the light at the end of the tunnel. This week has been full of deadlines, start dates as well as festivities. Everything has gotten accomplished properly and effort was absolutely applied. So here is to another week!
Some weeks are super productive.
Some weeks less so.
Some weeks are lessons in patience. This is where I have been stuck. Waiting for this. Stalled without that... and yet things seem to move forward.
The wall was erected at the studio. Picture rail was installed.
Next up the painter does his thing and I can finally unpack and get to work!
