Busy, Busy, Busy!!!!

This is my second quilt for the commission. I was capturing the feeling of my current stage of life. Everything is crazy. Kids, Spouse, Home, Career, Friends, Hobbies, Hopes, Desires. So many good things all going in a million directions. Often it can just feel out of control and life is starting to fly away. I really love the colors in this quilt and the fun embellishments. The star washers and coiled wire are perfect for that extra little craziness.
Yesterday I took all four quilts down to the interior designer who commissioned the pieces for the Peninsula Cancer Center. She loved them! I can't tell you what a big sign of relief that was. I didn't realize how nervous I was until I got in the car to go home and was overcome with exhaustion. These are the biggest art quilts I have ever done and even though she said she loved the pictures I was scared they would be disappointing in real life. Her happiness was a big confidence boost. Plus, she said she is working with another cancer center in eastern Washington and she is going to recommend me to them. Whoohoo!

Celebrating with you! See, ... your exuberant joy is affecting others. Its as if you received one of your little Dream Art-o-mats and uncoiled the dreams.

And I didn't even know what all those Dreams were when I started with Art-o-mat way back when. I'm excited to see where those Dreams lead in the future.
