|Paul Klee's Red and White Dome|
Finally! Finally, not only is our house back to its normal schedule, but I get to take the Ladies back out to play!
In case you've forgotten, last year at Quilting by the Lake, I took a class with Rosalie Dace. Now it was a study on Paul Klee and we were suppose to let him influence our work. I was really struck by his body of work and one painting, Red and White Domes, really got a hold of me. I'm not sure if it was the way he used value or the simple shapes or the curves against the squares but I just fell in love. So with that as inspiration, I ended up getting a good start on the next in Women in Motion Series. Because of its spiritual nature, I thought it would be a great entry for the upcoming Sacred Threads.
Anyways, after getting the Crosses all faced and labeled, I took out The Ladies and put them back up on my wall. Its kinda was a mess after spending 6 months in my UFO's pile but it still felt good to see them up. I started playing with ideas - getting back out the original sketches - pulling out some new fabric.
Oh! I did manage to get my Horizon sewing machine back from the dealer - Did I mention I have the best Janome Dealer ever at Alko Sewing in Mentor Ohio. He adjusted my baby this week and I had to take my sewing day to go get her - but OMG she's running good. I swear she hasn't run right since I broke that needle in her free motioning with nylon thread. Bad Momma!!
So what have you been up to creatively?
