1. I have a bunch of art cloth I’ve made over many years. There is a new show being sponsored by Running With Scissors art group, and I want to use some of my art cloth. So, I have made a couple sandwiches of art cloth, felt, and hand dyed cloth. And I have collected some 3D embellishments I want to use with them. That means bead fringe, buttons, and bits of glitzy fabrics. I will add other things I come across too, like paper stuff, sheer fabric, plastic. I mean to sit meditatively, and stitch in stream-of-consciousness fashion this week. Something might develop into an Above and Below artwork.
2. And another project I am doing for the show, is a panel with black silhouette machine stitching of trees on the edge of a pond. The background is more art cloth I made a while ago. I am heavily free motion quilting the picture, and plan to add 3D embellishments to tell the story.
3. I have cut and primed 2- 24″ squares of plywood. They will be quilt blocks to hang on the fence, when I paint them. Might do Flying Dutchman block, or Flying Geese, and Variable Star. Or maybe Milky Way, which is stars and 4 patches.
4. I collected a bunch of smooth rocks, to make mosaic designs on, and use in the garden, or as door stops. Now I’m collecting ideas for them.
Thanks for the update!
This is almost like reading a book and making the art in my mind. I had a talk with first graders about this today… Can’t wait to see the new site. I tried to combine blog and website and failed.
