i love repetition. large repetitive jobs quiet my mind. and fuel it at the same time. tonight i'm fashioning hundreds of envelopes. cutting, folding, gluing. the house is still. i fell asleep on the couch with edgar at 7.00 tonight and slept for almost 3 hours. so i have just become active as tom makes his way to bed. the fire is warming the library. i'm sipping perrier. and envelopes are flying from my hands. i love it. i am re-introducing a line of handmade and recycled cards to the studio this month. they are small and intimate using gentle little paintings for the imagery. and they demand their own little handmade envelopes. so back to work i go.
i feel like quilts are alive. they reflect all the little joys that make life special. they emanate love and warmth. the quilts i make blend a grandmother's ideals with a fresh youthful flair. there is a nostalgia for seasons past combined with hopefulness for a bright full future. you can find me online at www.chasinglightningbugs.com
