16 Mar 601 – 1200 Minutes
The second week of 6000 Minutes had me thinking about the messiness and routine of creativity. I begin my workday each day with my second cup of tea. Second Cup is inspired by the idea of the rings my mug leaves behind. The horizontal line quilting represents the routine of daily creativity. It measures 20″ x 10″ and is mounted on canvas.
Days 13 and 14 saw me playing with those random circles of Second Cup. This one is called Spiraling. Mounted on canvas, 10″ x 10″.
Again, I returned to something I’d made before that I wanted to try again. This time some random vertical lines from last year’s 100 Day Project that reminded me of a fence. This was a three day project – those quilting lines took longer than anticipated. But this project is about process, not product, so it is all good! Fence finishes at 20″ x 10″ and is mounted on canvas.
I wasn’t sure where to go next so asked for some input. The lovely Carol, who often comments on my Facebook posts, suggested doorways and windows. So I took the measurements of an interior door in our house and adjusted to scale. I quilted a door shape, also to scale, and then echo quilted the rest of the piece around that. Doors is 20″ square and mounted on canvas.
Day 20 was Valentine’s Day. My husband and I do not usually celebrate. He buys me flowers off and on throughout the year. I must admit that I am not as good at buying him small gifts – he is one of those people who never seems to really want anything 🙂 Anyway, this Valentine’s Day, I made him a small tribute to our 37 years of Valentine’s Days together since we were married. It is about 5″ x 7″.
