I have found that I am channeling my artistic energies into other media. This week I finished a quilt for my bed. :) Now, I am not very good at quilting. I piece and quilt by machine only. If I had to do sewing by hand it would never happen. I use a temperamental Brother portable that I have had for 25+ years.

This quilt, which I call the Creepy Monkey Quilt, along with a baby quilt I made for a friend, are part of a challenge I set for myself. I got 3 bins of fabric when we cleaned out the house, and I made these two quilts using what was in those bins. So far, the only thing I have bought is thread - and that's only because my box of notions is in storage with my books. Last night I slept under a quilt that I made. It won't win any awards, but it was warm, and it makes me happy. Isn't that what art is all about?
