The Lilies Continue - Off the Wall Friday

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??

Congratulations on your accepted entry to Sacred Threads! I am glad your lily project is moving along. It is easy to lose your way when a piece gets tricky. I am looking forward to seeing how it turns out.
