What have I been doing????

NOT MUCH....well, maybe a few things....

I am approaching my life with a new perspective.  Most of my life I have felt the need to achieve. I kept pretty focused and more than likely had a somewhat flexible, but never the less,  plan.  Shortly, I will turn 65 and I figure that is pretty grown up.  NO MORE PLANS!!  My new mantra is, "What do I feel like doing today? And that is exactly what I do.  I still have an innate need to finish what I start but I am giving my 'self' that- "Jimmy Buffet Latitude", and regressing into my flowerchild.

Having said all that (sounded good anyway),....this month, I did a set of prints for the Sketchbook Library Exchange in which I will donate one print to the library and trade the others with ten other artist from around the world.  How fun is that!  The other project I am working on is a 'sew along' with OVER 18,000 quilters around the world.  Every week we are presented with two 6" blocks to make and at the end of 12 months we will have 100 blocks created by different designers with which to make a quilt.  I am planning on making two 50+ block quilts and this is my social, traditional, project for the year.  The quilting event is called, "The Splendid Sampler" project and is open to anyone who wants to participate.

So, I have had a month with NO PLANS, but I am getting the urge to make a major type piece....hmmmm......what am I thinking????
