AIM: To permit myself to be paid to do what I love!

I start this blog as a marker and first step towards my future making a living from my Quilts and related Textile Design. For years I've heard folks say "follow your bliss". Well this is my bliss: Textiles, Quilts, Pattern and Color, the ingredients to my visual happiness and creative fulfillment and satisfaction. If money can follow along, so much the better. Again today I saw and received the message "permit yourself to be paid to do what you love". Well this is what I love and if not now, when? Perhaps this is why finding the "day job" has been so very difficult, perhaps the Gods wish for me to make this break once and for all.

I post this first picture of my first Baby Quilt, this one called Swirl Play as a hopeful harbinger of the future. It's bright, colorful, happy and playful and may it be a glimpse of things to come: positive, upbeat, bright in both color and sentiment and WIDE open to spontaneity and the future! I am talented enough and I deserve this, after working 30 yrs., I've certainly earned it.

Enough people have commented on my talent and commended me on how beautiful my work is that I really need to do this -- it's scary yes, but I think I just need to take the leap!! Kind of like diving into the ocean, just be brave, hold my nose and jump!
