It's all good. Putting this together was a great experience. I got to reflect on my path and where I am now, and really take a good look at it. I've never stopped to think about where I'm going, or what influences me. I just go with the flow of what feels right. Fortunately, I can say that I really like the path I'm on. Writing up this speech surprised me. It turns out I've come full circle.
Soon it will be one year since I started "My Sweet Prairie": the blog and the art. SO MUCH has happened in one year: magazines, commissions, art shows... It's really quite incredible. So as all other bloggers do, I'm preparing for a birthday week complete with surprises and give-aways to thank everyone who supports me and keeps my bravery up so that I can take fun risks that always seem to be worthwhile.
And by the way, my Random Number Generator (my oldest boy) picked #14... Jeane! Congrats! I've left a message requesting your address. You can email me privately and I'll get the current issue of Quilting Arts off to you this week.
See you all tomorrow for Tips on Tuesdays! ; )
