I started removing some of the appliques from the quilt I chose as a background for my new fabric painting. I try not to think about what will happen next, but just stay in the moment. This was just something I had to do to get the process rolling.
One of the wonderful things about doing this kind of work is that I don’t have to worry about making mistakes. Because what may seem like a mistake, just leads to the next thing that I might not have otherwise done.
The process is a lot of small steps each building on the one before it.
It feels slow right now, but apparently I need the time in between each step. I trust that there’s some sorting out going on between me and the piece.
