I was in the quilt shop yesterday looking for fabrics for a quilt that I will not be able to share with you (more on that in a minute). There were a group of three women who were complaining loudly to anyone who would listen (and those of us who did not) about Day Light Saving Time occurring. I for one like the idea of it being lighter at night. I am very much like a sunflower which follows the sun trying to catch every available ray of sun. I wonder why these women seemed to need to complain for a good 20 minutes. Yes, I know losing an hour of sleep is not easy for some. I don't remember how to change the clock in my car. However, this is a sign of winter ending and I am going to rejoice and dig out the car manual. I am also thankful that after two extremely long winters, this one promises an early spring. The maple trees are budding two weeks early! By the way, this is another thing we can thank Benjamin Franklin and it also saves energy.
Now back to my quilt. I have tried to understand the reasoning of not sharing quilts for exhibition for years and I am still no closer. When I talk with my art friends about this subject, they simply look at me like I am from another planet. They don't get it either. All I can say is that if I want to play, I must play by the rules so I won't be showing you anything concerning my Memories of My Childhood quilt.
And thanks to Marti for setting me straight that my ATC has a martini glass. Learned something new.
I can share with you that I signed up for the 4 x 6 2 exchange through the Art House Co-op. It was free and since I love making postcards, I thought it would be fun. You make a piece of 4" x 6" art, send it in with a SASE and they send you a 4" x 6" piece of art. I decided to send in one of the postcards I made for the Postmark'd Art group exchange this round. The theme was quotes and I chose the Chinese proverb, "A bird does not sing because it has a answer, it sings because it has a song." I'll share what I get in return. Now it's backing to appliqueing for me. Enjoy this glorious day! I am.
