Big News

The excitement this week is all about the City and Guilds program.  Creative quiltmakers know this UK educational opportunity as the best!  After a year of not-so-patiently waiting for a cirriculum update, I have been accepted as a student.  I will try to update the blog so that you can follow along my journey.  Anyone else in this program?

I am currently expanding my design skills by joining the Art Journal Caravan.  Some of these weekly digital collages will make their way onto a quilt.  Here's one.......

A quick look at the current project...

Here's the cracked paper quilt---yeah, I know, but that's what they are called because they have cracks in them on purpose.  This one is  "Cultivation", stemming from the hand and seed image.  I decided to add the cracks to look like weeds growing up, and then the vines around the borders appeared.  The vines boxed me in, so I added the boxes in red.  Of course, the boxes are where the buds (beads) grow......

Studio pix

Here's some pictures of the studio.  I have been spending hours in there this week, planning and working on a Jenny Beyer striped borders UFO.  Spring cleaning is in the air!

After the move....

Today is the first day we're not living out of boxes and I have only the deepest respect for Moving Men.  I mean that.   We hired my son and his friends as the muscle, but I still had to do the packing and unpacking.  The Good News?  I have a studio with a walk-in closet!!! Of course, now I've unpacked all the fabric, fiber and art supplies, you can only step-in.  No's the workspace that I love.   I furnished the studio with old furniture so I can paint with gusto.  I even included an old exercise bike for the days when inspiration is elusive.   Exercise really gets the blood to the old brain, and some really nice designs are the result.
