Because I love doing what I do and am addicted to learning new ways when my abilities diminish due to aging and its consequences, I keep trying.
And remember a teacher’s admonition, that you are not a machine. If you wish perfection, buy a machine made whatever. So I do not give up.
I love this quote in particular; Kiss the morning into Being for it has long won the battle over night. A reader who works as a nurse with the elderly, said she loves to wake up looking at this wall quilt in the morning light. It gives her hope for the day.
I have the original that I wake to and have decided to work on a smaller version. The center panel is 8 ½ in by 11 in. And the borders according to what looks right.
I am still working to photograph accurately. When I concentrate on one thing, I overlook another. I seem to eye focus on one thing and don’t see another. I remember when this was not the case and it is frustrating!
I remember a dear friend saying to me that she does not invite younger people to her home whose eyesight is perfect, especially when they are fashionable and fussy. She knew she would then be the gossip of the day with her housekeeping and appearance. Ahhh I can relate.
She once asked me if she should wear the same outfit she had worn before to lunch with friends I was having at my home. I was silent because I was blank. After a minute she laughed and said to me you are the perfect friend to have. You never see other than us, the who we are.
Fashion I am not aware of, but I do hope I notice when someone is in their ‘altogether.’ And cover them up!
I know I will become more adept using the modifications I have learned. If you are interested in any of these small wall quilts, contact me. They are for sale and I will be putting them up as I photograph them
