"Coral Variations" # 4 hand dyed, machine stitched, hand stitched textile piece by Dijanne Cevaal of Musings of a Textile Itinerant . I began my blog life by searching, finding favorite sites and following them regularly...rarely leaving a comment as it would be anonymous and I didn't have my blog up and running. I noticed Dijanne was selling a series of these Coral Variations in various color combinations at a price I could afford and I jumped right on it. I paid for it with PayPal and Dijanne was very gracious and sent me this beauty. I was so thrilled to receive this piece and rushed out to frame it and get it on the wall to appreciate. I am a big fan of oranges and blues but she also had beautiful purples and blues and reds. The whole purchase online was a big event for me and I felt so empowered to be a part of the great big world of blogland. Look at me now!!
I've been out to the shed bringing in old work to hang on our walls. I needed what was on the walls for the upcoming show so now to fill in the gaps. It was like seeing old friends for me and Pablo now lives in new rooms!
Because I stopped working and framed, I tried today to return to a piece I was working on but for me I had been away too long and lost my way....it hurt but I covered it in one color and will return with fresh eyes and heart. ..maybe some journal writing. I don't believe in mistakes but rather all things lead to where I need to be for the next project.
