I just have not produced anything worth blogging about (other than my gorgeous crop of tulips!)
I was in and out of the studio last week - painting, burning, soldering, etc., but nothing great. Most of it just went in to the "box."
I have a "box" I keep in a closet in the
studio with my experiments - soy silk fabric, pieces of copper
painted duck cloth, melted organza with angelina fibers, fused fibers, tyvek experiments, etc., etc.
Many times Sabrina will play around with something and end up throwing it into the garbage - I go behind her and yank it out, putting it into the "box" and more often than not I end up using it for something.
Anyway, we did have a meeting with our art guild (Carolina Mixed Media Artists) last Thursday which is always inspiring. A month ago we were provided some atc boards to try and we were to bring back what we made with them and they are going back to the company that makes the boards and I think I heard someone say they are going to be auctioned off. Here are a few that we made to donate using molding paste, embossing powders, copper wire and painted and stamped images.
Right now I'm concentrating on two quilts I've been working on and will post pictures soon. I've ordered a really beautiful queen sized goose down comforter and I'm making a quilted duvet cover for it for my son for Christmas as he keeps asking me "where's my quilt, Mom?" And I've got a few smaller art quilts going -- again though, not enough progress to post anything.
In the meantime....
enjoy this amazing weather, go stand outside, look to the clouds, raise your arms up to the sky and thank God for making this beautiful Earth.
