Thursday is the day I’ve designated for miscellaneous posts and my day off. But since I haven’t been posting everyday, we’ll call it lagniappe.
Susan’s lecture on Tuesday night was fun and filled with stories of her art and how she got to where she is today. I fell in love with her Merry Go Round. I also picked her up at the airport where we had the adventure of lost luggage….You are probably familiar. Anyway the luggage did arrive and was delivered to her. Happy ending.
I’ve never considered myself as an “artist”. You know, the ones who paint, sculpt, make art quilts. I am a musician and quilting has given me a visual outlet that I can hold on to instead of just having a memory or recording of a great concert. So I’ve always toyed with the idea of using quilting as art, but I REALLY enjoy making quilts and seeing the joy they bring to the recipients.
Well, this sculpting with fabric has opened a new window and I think I might climb through. I have visions of fabric sculpted dragons, one being teal, of course, and bringing my favorite Sci Fantasy to life. I’ve never been able to draw to my liking, though my sketches look better after a little time has passed…the same with my recordings. I guess I am just too self critical.
Thanks, for stopping by and may your journey be filled with fun twists!
Happy Quilting, Mary
