Really Big News

Hi Everyone! A big welcome to all the new readers!

You might remember last week, I told you I had some REALLY BIG NEWS, unless you are like me and have no memory whatsoever.  I had to wait until it was really official to spill the beans.

So here it is.  No more teasing, I promise.

I made a plane reservation….

And a hotel reservation…..

To Solon, Ohio for the filming of 2 segments of Quilting Arts TV Series 1500!!!

When I found out, I just about busted a gut with excitement.

I’m going to be demoing my 2 3-D techniques, and you guys are the first to find out.  I’m not exactly sure when it will air, but I will let you know.

Naturally, I’ve been super busy preparing the samples, etc.  And I don’t think I have anything to wear on set that will be right for the cameras.  It seems that black, white or red are no-no’s, and that is more than half my wardrobe.  So, a little clothes shopping might be in order too.

So this is exciting news, right?  But, I need to acknowledge that I had plenty of help with this.  Especially my coaches and my friends who recommended me to Susan Brubaker-Knapp, the new host.  And, as I celebrate, I need to remind myself that it all started with my intention and goal earlier this year.  So, don’t be afraid to dream big dreams, and set big goals.  Then make sure to bust it up into doable bite size pieces!

As always, a big thanks for reading!

Some Big News

Hi Everyone! A big welcome to all the new readers!

This week is going to be short and sweet.  I’ve been busy in the studio, how about you?  Have you found any time to be creative?

Here’s the BIG news I hinted at last week……

I have an article about my 3-D textile paintings coming out in the Dec/Jan edition of Quilting Arts!  Don’t know why it has taken me so long to do this, but this year I made it one of my goals.  I’m hoping it will be the first of many.

For those of you who don’t know what a 3-D textile painting look like here’s a picture of Fire & Water, copyright 2014, Roxane Lessa:

The Future, It’s Already Here (or it could be)!

Hi Everyone! A big welcome to all the new readers!

It’s August.  Already.  How did that happen?  My youngest daughter got her hair cut and looks like she’s 25.  How did that happen?

Anyway,  the future keeps coming doesn’t it?  Speaking of the future….. remember that 2019 party I went to last week?  Someone posted a picture of me in my silly tiara and my outrageously colorful outfit.  Red platform shoes completed the look.  And here she is….

 

The Art Quilters Coach

Anyway, some serious mojo got started that week, because my life is starting to rev up.  Big things are happening soon, and as soon as I can tell y’all about it, I will!

That’s what I love about being in a coaching group of serious, like-minded folks.  It inspires and encourages you to go past your comfort zone.  And you know what?  I’m starting to like that slightly off-balance feeling (what I used to call fear), because it’s the way I KNOW that I am growing and changing.  Enough about me- let’s talk about YOU.

One of my Private Art Quilting Mastery Coaching students confided in me recently that she was in a bit of a “funk”.  How many of you have ever felt like that?

But here’s the cool part….

She didn’t stop going into the studio.  She didn’t stop working on her pieces.  She showed up.  She kept her commitment in front of her, guiding her, no matter how she felt that particular day. And- she had a coach.  Someone who knew what she was really up to and reminded her of what she truly wanted to make and do.

So many of us listen to the “funk”, and think it’s real, and that we should just quit.  Me included.  But if we support ourselves with a group or an individual that doesn’t subscribe to our brand of bull****, we have a chance.

If you think you might need that kind of support to accomplish the big dreams you have for your art quilts I refer you to the two programs below that are really working for my students.

As always, a big thanks for reading!
