Stuff That’s Out There

So I didn’t get any art done last night. I didn’t get home until 10:30 and then I was exhausted. It means I’m kinda panicked about tonight, getting lots done, so wish me luck…I’m going to come home from running a lab with 150+ 7th graders and gummy bears and water, and then I’m going to NOT lie prone on the couch like a corpse. I am going to get in here and sew all night. Really. I am. I mean, I had fun last night playing games and hanging out, but aack.

So because I don’t have pictures of anything I did or didn’t do last night, I’ll have to use stuff that will be in exhibits this month.

The SAQA exhibit Celebrating Silver with my piece Awakening the Crone will be at the St. George Art Museum, St. George, Utah, from September 12 through December 31, 2015.

This piece was just at Quilt! Knit! Stitch! in Portland, Oregon.

The SAQA exhibit People and Portraits with my two pieces I Was Not Wearing a Life Jacket and Fully Medicated will be at the Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts in St. Bonaventure, New York, from September 25, 2015 – December 19, 2015. Ironically, these two quilts will be a whopping 128 miles away from my son at college. No, he will not go see the show and no, I cannot afford to see the show and him. Oh well.

I Was Not Wearing a Life Jacket below…the only quilt whose description is a haiku. Or a short poem anyway. I might not have counted out the syllables.

It’s got some crazy going on.

Fully Medicated…whenever people go on about homeopathic this or that (and holy crap, there are some things you just go to the doctor for because it’s crazy not to), it makes me feel bad for being on so many meds. I do a lot to try to keep myself healthy and my body just doesn’t freakin’ care. And I do take a lot of vitamins and natural supplements as well…but…so homeopathic for diabetes? Not so much. This is Fully Medicated

All about the meds in my body. The background I hand-dyed myself. Not on purpose for this quilt. Just for fun and it happened to work out really well for this piece. Both of these are relatively old. The first from 2010; the second from 2011. Funny. I think they feel older than that even.

OK, I’m dealing with a vomiting cat and prepping my lunch and I still have to prep at school, so nothing coherent is coming out of my head except EW GROSS at the moment. Hopefully tomorrow will show progress.
