My Cup Runneth Over
HAVE YOU SEEN THIS PERSON? I got the idea for this from The Quilting Arts Book Techniques and Inspiration for Creating One-of-a-Kind Quilts by Patricia Bolton. (My friend Patricia/Patty gave me a gift card to B & N and this was one of 3 books I got there yesterday. Thanks Patty.) The article I read is on page 122 by Maria Elkins called "Making Portraits". My cup runnith over with pomegranate juice! Suki posted her fav cup and others joined in. I cannot be left out, tho I am not a regular drinker of anything special. I have an occasional latte (very occasionally), a cup of tea seldom, water mostly and lately strong organic pomegranate juice. This cup was a gift to me by none other than my best friend, Patty. She found it in a thrift store (with a mate that says Abba, Hebrew for Father. This one says Ema, Hebrew for Mother) and wanted me to give them to my daughter. Well, daughter has different tastes than thrift store shopping mom and friend, and didn't want said cups. So goodie, they are MINE!!!! What are you doing on this fine Sunday? The sun is shining out today where I live. A good day for a walk. We'll see if that happens. In the meantime I am reading about how to make fabric from paper. I may dive into that process soon. I have been playing with another project that is turning into a real mess. I may post a hint of it and feel free to critique strongly. Or maybe I don't need critique as I can already see it's a mess myself! LOL Anyway...not my best piece to date. Other new project in mind and must get rolling on it. Hope you are having fun creating in some way too.
