So when you're the host - it is not an option to skip posting in Off the Wall Friday. Which is a good thing - really. Still once in a while I wish I could just shut the whole world out for a bit. Especially when nearly 2 feet of snow falls in 3 days and you are still expected to go to work and get your daughter to school. Snow is pretty looking out a window - but under your car tires - not so much.
So while the word for 2013 is Productivity - I really fell short this week. I did managed to finish the sketch for the next redwork pattern. The tracing I made of the original photo needed some changes since the ladies looked a bit alien with their severe hair styles. I also met with my friend Sandy who helped me come up with a plan for the background the stitch blocks are going to be on. She's going to teach me a new surface design technique for it. Let's just say that it involves her airbrush booth!
Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts. Elizabeth Barton is a teaching a class called Abstract Art Quilts where we'll explore abstacting out designs as well as dyeing the fabric we'll need to make them. Not only is Elizabeth one of my favorite teachers but this is an area I've been wanting to study. Not to mention Arrowmont has been on my list of places to go for a while now. I'm sure there will be more on that later.
So what have you been up to creatively???
