Having technical difficulties: my computer decided to end itself.
I’ll be back soon…maybe with The Parable of the Quilter Who Sold Her Soul?

All artists I know sell their work. Actually.
See you on the other side of a new computer. A Mac.
But it’s not about selling your work. It’s about choosing to make things that aren’t true to you. In short, it’s about a sort of prostitution.
Wouldn’t it be fun to experiment with a bit of prostitution that wouldn’t risk your real life?
oh no! good luck with repairs or replacements I’ll miss you
Ah. You mean like Bruegel. And Holbein. And Rubens. And Rembrandt. And the other boys who sold on commission. Oh no, you can’t do that.
Whorish Quilting. That should be a book. All the quilts would be made with precuts from over-priced matchy-matchy designer lines. Oh, wait….. : )
well i’ve always said that hand quilting is a lot like sex
given enough motivation
you can really do it anywhere.
Oh no! now that I am back home you will be gone. Oh well, will wait patiently for your return.
The whoring story sounds intriguing!
good luck and take care!
The suspense is killing me.
The thing is, even if you make a charm pack quilt with gnome prints, it will be yours. You can’t help it. Which isn’t to say that is what you should devote precious time and strength to. Just that it’s not exactly whorish, it’s more like working within a set of bizarre parameters, being a stranger in a strange land. Sometimes that leads to something stunning and new. The ironic/angry jelly roll quilt. Haven’t seen one yet. Will look for it here.
(Also looking forward to your fabric collection “Memories of a Cute White Childhood.” Not that I don’t buy those prints. Until I started reading you, I didn’t even notice I was doing that. I’m still not sure I think they’re bad but I think it’s good to see what they are. I still reserve my uppiest eyebrows for Tasteful Color PreCoordination.)
So funny that you appeared on the shuttle bus (driven by Cheech or was it Chong?) like a vision, and then disappeared into the throng and we didn’t see each other again!
P.S. I think the comparisons to Rembrandt are a little exaggerated. Guy couldn’t quilt to save his life.
Hmmmm….I have been feeling a little dirty lately….this explains it…..Must go shower now….
p.s. I’ve had my mac for 2 months and am so so so converted.
Oops. Good luck with the computer!
You have the best comments discussions! I too await your fabric line ;-) But so sorry about your computer. Go Mac! You won’t go back!
Yes. I have a Mac and I’m living in the Apple store these days…
Ack! Sorry about your computer. I look forward to hearing what you have to say!
computers suck. i think mine is slowly dying also.
We need to develop a grieving ritual for lost electronics. My husband says don’t get attached to them, but I decided to buy a Mac.
Looking forward to what you will do with the lowest common denominator.
Your readers are a scream.
