So many people have asked me why I don't have a blog. I always replied that I spent enough time on the computer, managing and participating in netgroups and working with images, that I really didn't need something else to take away precious time with textiles.
But today some friends said, "You must show us a photo of this art piece when you finish making it," and my first thought was, "Oh no, another place where I need to remember to share a finished piece!" Suddenly, a blog seems like a sensible use of my time.
I work incredibly slowly, compared to other textile artists and quilters I know. Yet I am interested in process, in sharing a dialogue with other artists and quilters about the why and how of what we do. I can't imagine this blog being an amazing source of inspiration, since my work is so piecemeal, but at least I can demonstrate that process as it happens, and share the results with anyone who wants to see them.
