I started back at work this week, although I don't officially take over the business till 1st February. Of course, in my line of work, working does not automatically = earning money.
I haven't really worked for 5 months, so it's both exciting and exhausting. I will have around 300 customers, and should really try to meet them all, but I don't think this is logistically possible. As a result, my focus is now on making a living and developing the business, so the creative side has to go back to being a weekend activity.
As part of my plan to for 2008 to get my art "out there" (wherever THERE may be), I've dug out some UFOs (UnFinished Objects) which I'll concentrate on completing. Above is "Look Left, Look Right" (top only, unquilted).
Can't remember what I called this one. It's all quilted but needs binding. I love the quilting design on this - click on the photo for a closer look. This is a favourite piece I painted while my ankle was broken. This was when I first started to do "cutouts". It is also an unquilted top.
