Last week I had a furniture design store owner ask me to see a portfolio of my work. I hung my head a little and gave her my card knowing that she really didn't want to see pictures of Bruno or my kids and I didn't have what she wanted. While I love this blog, it's not just about finished work. It's about process, and family, and screw ups and making lots of things. My flickr is more like a dumping ground for pictures than a place to go to see quilts.
I'm going to show her my quilts in person next week, so maybe she'll forgive the gratuitous cute dog photos that she had to wade through to get to the quilts, but that experience motivated me to create something new.
I wanted a place where all my finished quilts would be in one place with just a few words to remind me how or why I made them. I've barely started putting this together. It's not in the right order or even close to complete, but it's a start. I have loads of pictures to go through, more pictures to take and quilts to find. Bottom line, I think it's a great idea and I'm excited to work on it some more.
It's times like this when I wish I took better pictures.
Even though I don't have many of these quilts any longer, my digital portfolio will be a place where I can drop by, visit them and remember.
