I am a loser. Not in the personality sense, but in the "I can never find anything way". I always caution people about giving me things. I warn them that I probably won't be able to find it when it is needed. So they usually say that they will just keep. I like it that way. It took me years to discover that that was the best way to deal with my loser issues.
Today, of course, yet again, I couldn't find an OyVey! Quilt that I made a while ago, but wanted to re-photograph for a pattern cover. I looked everywhere. I finally found a bin to look in that I hadn't opened in a while, but it wasn't there. Instead I found some pieces that I had made a few years ago. I stowed them away in the bin when I was trying to de-clutter my studio. In that bin was a piece that surprised me that I made in a workshop in 2006 with Susan Shie. The class was about diary painting on fabric. It turns out that I really like it. I loved her class. The theme we chose for the piece was doorways. As I read my writing, I surprised myself. Did I write all of that?
