A new journal quilt, titled “Membership.” It’s sized around 12″x12″ and was one of the many that I sketched/designed before going on hiatus for my licensure exam.
My next exam is scheduled for this Friday. Oy.
I’m experimenting with new ways to attach the title to the quilt. This is permanent marker on a strip of ribbon, hand-stitched into the binding. The flip side shows the date, ”August, 2009.”
I’ve been using “throw-away” fabric for the backs of these journal quilts — the less it matches the quilt itself, the better. I’m a little bit thrilled to realize that I subconsciously chose a fabric for this cheeky quilt that matches the favorite pajama pants of my ex-boyfriend. I’m just sayin’. You do the math. Membership.
There comes a time when you have to stop planning
(fretting, wondering, worrying, thinking, debating, obsessing)
and just start doing
(moving, acting, deciding, changing, growing, progressing).
Against all odds, I passed my exam yesterday. Thank you for all the well-wishes, public and private.
I’ve got one more exam to take for my license, and will likely attempt that one in a few weeks.
Hopefully I can get back to normal for 10 days or so before the freakout starts again and release some of those ideas that are bursting at the seams.
PS: I passed.
