Its been a good week - if not very productive. But I got some good news - twice! First of all - you probably know that my piece was accepted into Sacred Threads - so I'm all happy. Secondly, I was accepted as a scholarship candidate for my week long class at Arrowmont School of Arts and Craft. So I feel blessed all around.
Ohhh and the really good news - is that I finally - yes you read that right finally settled on a composition for my lily piece. This morning while answering comments from my blog it occurred to me that the reason I was having so much trouble was I was afraid to cut into my fabric. So I switched to tracing paper. That way I could brainstorm cheaply and easily. I tried a few compositions but went back to a familiar one. I call it my smiley face composition - but really its really tracks your eye around in a stretched oval. Its amazing how much easier it was to work with tissue paper!
With that done - I did manage to get another lily done (that's a lot easier now too!)
Oh and my laundry folded.
And organized my sheer pieces.
And help make dinner.
and now my Off the Wall posted.
So guess it was a pretty productive day!
One more thing - did you know that Quilt Daily offers Free E books on a bunch of really Quilty topics? Check out the latest one - The Art of Thread Sketching
So what have you been up to creatively??
