Follow-Through Complete

Sometimes it's hard for me to finish things that I start, like this blog post for instance. I've had a draft of this post saved for over two weeks, and even though I'm typing in it now, I'm not sure that I will be able to follow-through and click the Publish Post button today.

As promised, here is the completion of the partial illustration I showed you in the last post. I'm still not sure if I'm done with it though. Maybe I'll change the color of his shirt or bag. Something about those colors just aren't jiving with me. The other two images I showed you last time have each sold three times this month. Not bad. Not great, but not bad.

Lately I've been thinking a lot about quilting. I've never done it before, but I think I might give it a go. This link is the coolest quilt I've ever seen. I'd love to make one like that, but this virgin quilter will require an incredibly basic pattern for my first time. I'm going to do a practice run by making a baby doll size quilt (which will probably be a gift to Flora) about 20" x 20". If I can master that project without getting bored or frustrated then I'll promote myself to the big leagues and start on something, well, big!


  1. i want to make a quilt too...it's on my bucket list. i've made one with a machine, but i want to do one by hand...and i really like the one you gave a link to. modern quilts...what a concept. keep me posted if you give it a try.

  2. WOW, supercool quilt!!! If you are successful, I might try it. No, I'm sure I will never do that. And a word of advice---acheive all of your crafting goals BEFORE you have kids. And work all the puzzles you want to work also.
