Where Has All My Quilt Blogging Gone??

Where has all my quilt blogging gone?  I'm not sure I know!!  This summer has been a bit crazy, from keeping up with the outside work and sewing/alteration work, trying to cook and use all the produce that is exploding out of my vegetable garden, traveling to to CO for my nephew's spectacular Rocky Mountain wedding, preparing to host a Norwex party (have you heard about this company - amazing stuff!), dealing with plaguing health issues, attempting to get to the gym on a semi-regular basis, trying to figure out what in the world I am doing with my life, a really, really cool quilting project/job that won't be revealed until the Houston Quilt Market, and on and on it goes!  I think one of the snags has been my perpetual frustration with not being able to capture what I see and experience with my camera.  (I had upgraded from a Canon Powershot ELPH to Canon Powershot G15 recently.  It has much greater capabilities, but the kind of photography I long to do still eludes me, and I need to do figure out how to improve my photography skills....)  It's so frustrating to take a picture that doesn't begin to reflect what I just saw or experienced; that tends to shut down any blogging inspiration.  I think another snag is the fact that I have so many quilts floating around in my head and so many quilts in process that I feel a bit paralyzed some most days.  I'm usually working on a variety of quilts, so it feels a bit schizophrenic to post what I'm up to each day - there's no way you'd be able to keep my projects straight!  And, then there are the days when my brain doesn't function well enough to articulate what I'm thinking (can you relate?!)  To be honest, the only way I've ever been able to blog is to wait until the inspiration hits, but that isn't always very consistent....  And, I'm really, really slow when it comes to writing blog posts (too much reflection, I guess).  But, I do have tons of posts swirling in my head and a number of quilts finishes I want to show you.

In the meantime, I am still slowly working at photographing and documenting this stack of quilts.  I got the bright idea of photographing every one of my quilts against a barn, but that's easier said than done.  This stack may be slow to disappear!  

So, to be continued!!
