April 24

Okay, so it has been a while since I last posted to the site. Yes, I have been working on my pages but I must admit to being a bit behind schedule. I have completed both my Chakra 1 and Chakra 2 pages. I am roughly half finished with page 3. Having now figured out how to download photos from my camera to my computer I can now show off what I have completed.

What have I learned--a 4" x4" piece is alot to finish in a month. Lesson learned--work on a smaller piece. At this point I do not think I will make all 12 pages but I do plan to finish at least the 7.

What else have I been doing--finishing the Round Robin project that several of my fellow Guild members and I had undertaken for 2008. I did also participate in the quilt project for raising funds for breast cancer research and managed to complete 3 squares (those were only 2" x2").

I have read the comments from several followers--and yes I think that working on the pieces is helping my healing to move forward. That and the fact that it has now been 13 months since the second surgery. I am finally feeling much more energetic than I have in years. Looking back it is hard to believe how far I have come in the last 13 months. The healing capacity of our bodies is truly amazing.

Challenges in working on my pieces--staying in such a limited palette for each page is quite interesting in making the pieces have life and movement.
