Forgetful Blogger

Today I remembered I had this blog.  I spent most of my day reflecting on the path I have taken.  I started listening to the Jealous Curator.  Which has been rather interesting, all of those Art School memories, feelings and choices are brought back to the surface.  I'm constantly questioning what I am doing and where I want to be.  I am contemplating bringing another sewing machine into our home, this one isn't for making bags, but quilts.  I have fallen hard for quilts, now I feel a struggle in my creative/work life.  The biggest struggle I find in life is having to spend 8 hours a day working a job that I feel financially obligated to.  Bags have never been an income for me, I don't really have the drive to make it a business for me. I've though about it, but I've constantly struggled with the aspects or organizing a financially lucrative business.  I'm a maker not a manager.  Anyway that's enough reflection for now.  Here is the beautiful quilt I made inspired be Maureen Cracknell's wanderlust quilt. I believe the geese pattern is called Happy Geese.  This is just a small snippet of the actual quilt.
