Okay, I have done it; I've felt guilty about not posting for long enough, and felt guilty that what I've been posting isn't relevant to my quilty pals here. So, I gave myself a new identity in a new blog, Random Acts of Art , at www.mermaidwhimsy.blogspot.ca . There, I have completed my "mixed media artist" identity, and will be sharing my art (which consuming far more of my time these days).
I've also given up on holding guilt for not posting when I feel I have nothing relevant to say; I will grow the blog organically, updating it when it's right, and will feel complete in doing so. I can't keep up with Bloggy type rules that try and push you into getting more followers by posting a zillion times a week, or commenting on a zillion other blogs; it's tough enough just being me these days, as I'm sure it is tough enough being you. So, all that to say that I hope that if you are at all interested in my artwork, please consider following that blog, especially since I expect to be posting there more often than I will be posting here.
That said, I hope to be making a quilt for the father in law to be this year, and will share it when I can. I still love the zen of quilting, but find myself falling in love with the zen of creating mixed media art... So, follow my whimsy I will - hope to have you join me!!
