creative blogging

It's a challenge, I will admit (and I'm sure you'll agree) to keep things fresh and interesting. Did you ever simply run out of things to say? Well, if you have, I hope you've had the good sense not to blog that day. If there's one thing I can't stand it's somebody who just blathers on about nothing simply to fill up the page. Blogging is really akin to doing a monologue....and you know how hard THAT is to do: at least for some people. Nonstop talkers can be very wearing--especially if they are neither funny nor interesting. On the other hand, if you're the listener you don't have to expend much effort since it is not necessary to hold up your end of the conversation. In fact, with some people, you don't even have to listen; they're so busy they don't notice your glazed look.(How did I get onto this topic?) So this afternoon, I packed all my commercial fabrics, put them into assorted bundles, and filled a rolling bin. This place is looking tidy again. At least, as Helene says, "comparatively speaking." Keep in mind that if I don't see it, I don't own it. This does make life a little more complicated...but I'll cope. Then I pulled yesterday's overdyes out of the dryer and ironed them. To say they need work is an understatement. I won't bore you with their lack of variety in a color I already have too much of. Instead, I will go have my beauty sleep so I can be bright eyed in the studio tomorrow.

Pictures of your fabric are my favorites.

I'm sure your room looks wonderful. Have a good day in the studio tomorrow, er, today.

Love, Helene

I have an idea for a new challenge. Every member of the ring pics a fabric she really hates and sends it to another member. The one who receives the gift must create something out of it. No matter what method. The best result is awarded with discarded stash. --
New blog head picture! I love it.

I like the new header, too.

I hope I've had the good sense to refrain from blathering on about nothing. Posts about work, eat, sleep would bore me to tears- and that's what a lot of my days have been like recently.

I hope you keep posting about cleaning out your space, at least til the job is done! Any plans for a garage sale?

The header, alas, is of the first major quilt I ever sold. I loved it - it is the one I was throwing at the wall and putting together on Simply Quilts. I am happy to be looking at a fragment of it again every day. Urban Nightlife.

Eva - I love your challenge - why don't you spearhead it from your blog?

rayna, i'm the same way...if i don't see it, i don't own. thats why its a treat to clean up my space then I discover things I have that I meant to use. but when i'm really really focused and concentrating "stuff" must be hidden away.
