hey,Suzie, I do art or scenic quilts. That is my favorite. Something that made me feel so good was: one day as I was shopping at my favorite LQS for a particular type of fabric,the shop employee who was also a friend, said to me "Jo you have made me look at fabric in an entirely different way." At that time I was looking for a fabric that would look like old weathered wood for a barn. lol By the way we found the perfect fabric. I look for skies, water,trees,sunsets and sunrises etc. lol Jo
jolo-- we'd love some pictures, please! we're very visual, and all the other senses , too. how did you get started on landscapes and scenics? what inspired you? and what guided you? i want to try everything!!
suzie-- i'm still stuck on 5's. and the snap dragon thing! i finally found a snapdragon plant, and i have the snaps. did some rough sketches and when i say rough.....nearly skinned my knuckles right off! dh could tell what they were, but he's a botanist and had the live flowers in front of him. i have discovered that drawing skills need to be used or they fly out the window! i will add that to my daily to do list.
as a break from all things quilty, i made a dress for one of my 18" dolls. had to get this one! she is made by madame alexander and is named..............(wait for it)............................................... ............OLIVIA! since i have an olivia and have great hopes of acquiring another ( i'm talking about my real live dgd, and my daughter's love's daughter, who with luck will become another dgd), this doll just seemed meant to be for me! she was $18, which is a right amount, too. yay, zuilily!!
when i'm not buying fabric, i'm buying doll stuff. lol. these started out with the dolls my daughter was "too old" to play with. guess i'm in my 49th childhood, or i never got out of my first! lololol
Looked at the video. Too many ideas. Will look again. Too many choices right now.
dottie-- i'm still sending good wishes your way. hope the change in care will help rob. hugs!
Rob has been discharged... to my house... big bed, elevator, 24 hour drugs, proximity to MDs.
Going on vacation next week, so all will work out! Quuilt On!
YAY!! such good news! enjoy that vacation, you have more than earned it!
Dotty I bet you are one relieved but busy girl. Nothing like a recuperating patient to keep you moving in your sneakers.
I know what you mean about all the ideas on this month's challenge video. There are so many techniques to try out. I was hoping something in there would just chime with each person to expand horizons and techniques. Like you my thot was 'there are 10 things in there to try right away'! Am experimenting right now but have no concrete direction. I think I will watch it again....after I discipline myself to finish the art piece due for and online class and the actual bed Q I have 'on the rack' for a good friend. (It is getting cold down here with snow all over the mountains and 38 degree temps at night.
My best to your family and sure hope to get time to create happening again.
The first piece demonstrated resembles a " Shofar" the ram's horn that I believe is sounded when my Jewish friends (and in-laws) celebrate Rosh Hashonah. I may try one when I get back from vacation in France. Vacation in France, OMG, there ARE benefits to providING one's child with a fine education
No kidding! Wish I could meet up with you over there and we could fabric shop and moan about how dreadful the prices are. :) Enjoy the heck out of it.
