Ky, it was a real pleasure to meet you! This packet of 100 beads came in today's mail from Julie in Florida! She made them from me by wrapping paper strips around a toothpick and then shining them up with nail enamel. I cannot imagine the patience needed to make these small beads. And I know they will beautify my fiber work for some time to come. THANK YOU JULIE!!!!!
I was also right there at the farmers market so I picked up the most juicy oranges, peaches and plums and brought them home to eat...
adding this fruitful bounty to my freshly picked figs. I took two quart sized bags of these to my next door and across the street neighbors!
Once home I started a new project. My soon to be six year old grand children will be celebrating later this month. I am making each a fabric photo album. These are some of the first steps:
Torn muslin pages; photos transferred to TAP (transfer artist paper);
machine sewing the photos to muslin backed with batting. Stay tuned for the next steps that will make them even more decorated.
Now, this sketchbook from THE SKETCHBOOK PROJECT has been sitting naked on my desk for the past few days. Can you believe I have been too intimidated by it to begin? Yes, it is true.
It has a theme: "Down Your Street". Is that MY street or YOUR street? Does that mean I have to draw streets? Or can I tackle this in a wider birth of imagination and suggest that absolutely ANYTHING can be Down Your/My Street?
I guess we will both have to stay tuned to see what I do with this. We will watch to see how Lynn gets herself OUT of this state of INTIMIDATION and on to drawing or otherwise creating in these pages...due date for sending it in is Jan. 15, 2011. So I have a little bit of time to get going.
! Happy Sunday!
On our way to SF to see more ART!
There WILL be photos!
