A few weeks ago I felt that nothing I was sewing was coming from the heart. I started reading about improvised quilts and felt like 'Yes! This is what I should be doing!'....it wasn't easy.
Olly and I had been missing skiing and wishing we'd booked to go and gradually the blocks and different sized half square triangles were forming something like a mountain scene.
For once instead of feeling like it 'had' to develop into a quilt I decided to have a go at a wall hanging. I feel I should let you know that at this point I felt that I was making the best of a bad job but I guess that's part of finding yourself as an artist is to let yourself make these mistakes and grow with them.
Starting to quilt this wall hanging was a relief, with my complete lack of FMQ skills I decided to just jump on in and give it a go...I wanted swirling wind/mist round the mountains....I got this!!
Do you know what though...I finished it and then took it out to play in the snow!
