Back to pink

The Christmas decorations are back in their boxes. It seems that I put them away earlier each year. Or maybe it's just that the school holidays were over very early this year...
Anyway, I've noted down that I need to buy a new light set next year and perhaps make some more silvery and red decorations. Then, I went back to the studio and found out that my pink fabrics were still exactly where I had left them about ten days ago...

Now, I am working again on this second pink quilt I started before Christmas.
I think that these printed fabrics are not easy to work with, at least on a somewhat larger scale.
In order to relax and, maybe, find new ideas, I've pasted some of my fabric scraps in a sketchbook. I first painted the pages in the same colour scheme I had used for my 12x12 pink quilt.
This year, no big resolutions... ( I never keep them ). But I want to draw and paint more, as I used to do in a former life. And I hope to make a few "larger" quilts and maybe exhibit them.

These fabrics are brightening up my dreary dark day here in Portland.

I'll join you in trying to do more drawing and painting this year. Maybe you'll show some of it on your blog? Have fun with the pink quilt!
