I'm still working on this first paper quilt I started back in Oct (yikes! time does fly doesn't it?)
The pictures are from an old incense package, some of the papers are handmade some are collected.
I'm trying to find a little creative time first thing in the morning, before work or anything else has intruded. Some days it works out sometimes not so much. Getting up early is not my favorite thing but I like the quiet at that time of day. Often I only manage 10 minutes. I admire those who can do so much more every day but right now I have to try to find a balance with other things in my life... Still I really want to try to maintain the habit of creativity even if all I have is 10 minutes, so I'm trying.

These are lovely -- I liked them back in October, but over time their story has acquired a unity and complexity. The depth of texture and color is wonderful -- I especially like what you see "through" the arch of the window/door.

I also wanted to say thank you for your blog. It is always a meaningful and insightful stop for me. I thoroughly enjoy your artistic journeys, but the trials and tension you share as you seek balance are also helpful in my own walk. Best wishes for a peaceful and happy New Year!

Thanks (belatedly) Elizabeth!
It is wonderful to hear that my musings have some relevance to others
I hope to "see" you here from time to time in the coming year.
