Every week, I get emails asking me why I don't keep an art journal any more.
Funny, how it is assumed that if you don't post something on your blog that you are no longer doing something creative. Or that if it isn't what you have always shared on your blog, that you no longer creating.... I have no idea what I am trying to say here but maybe you get what I mean.
So anyway -
don't know why this photo is fuzzy but I don't have time to retake it - sorry
The thing is that I am spending so much of my time making and creating, I don't blog as much.
Above - WIP
an altered jacket that turned into an altered vest when it lost its sleeves last week
I have no idea where this vest is going but I am having fun working on it.
and a New York Beauty quilt block that I am very excited about
it is the start of a new quilt top
The color excites the gypsy in me and circles are a recurring theme that shows up in my projects.
I love the movement of the New York Beauty.
I suppose I could share pictures of my book that I practice and work out machine quilting patterns but that can get a bit dull.
Sometimes the quilting patterns find their way into my art journal
and many times my art journal finds its way into quilts
sometimes I go out and find really cool rocks
ones that have fossils or tiny hearts in them
if they have both all the better
So my message is -
don't set limits on yourself or let one thing define you
go make something or find something that is cool and excites you because
