Ask questions and follow the flow, the answers will be there. Wow, don’t I sound philosophical today? When I had my own insurance related business when my daughter was growing up, my marketing technique was lying on the couch and meditating. Pretty soon the phone would ring and I had another project. Over the past few months I’ve been thinking about the direction in which I want to take my business as I’ve been doing a little of this and a little of that for several years now. Well, over the last few weeks the business has shown me which branch of the river it is taking.
Did I ever mention that when I receive a bag or box of tee shirts to be made into a quilt, I feel like I’m getting a Christmas present to open? It’s so much fun to turn old tee shirts, or in some cases new tee shirts, into a pretty, functional object that will comfort the person for years to come. I thought this would be the last thing I wanted to do when I started this business, but it turns out it is my favorite! Who would have known? Why is it my favorite, you might ask? Making this type of quilt incorporates all I love about the process: creativity, design, piecing, quilting, beauty and function. I also can learn a lot about a person from seeing a series of tee shirts or sometimes just part of a person in depth. However, as my camera has been in my purse so I can do outdoor photography during this, my favorite season of the year, I do not have any pictures. I suppose if I did some step workouts, the camera could travel around the house, but no.
So I will, instead, show you my neck of the woods in autumn.
I think this photograph looks like an impressionist painting.
And does this photograph say Solitude to you? I’m trying to decide whether to place it in a beginner’s competition under that subject. It says that to me…
I love autumn colors, and autumn.
I have a picture without this vehicle in it, but I like it better with it. Do you agree?
I’m lucky enough to live between Massachusetts Bay and the Blue Hills Reservation (6000 acres). I often can’t decide which way to turn!
So enjoy this wonderful week. Happy days!
