The above are two of my favourite quotes, especially the Sark quote "first comes action, then inspiration". For me this is so true (and has helped me get started soooooo many times). I tend to mull things over for too long and then start doubting myself and procrastinating. The end result of that .... no art. So, I often refer to these two quotes and have them displayed in my art room... just begin!
I also finished this autumn toned icicle. She is for a swap on Altered Art Obsession (yahoo group). We were all given a partner to swap an icicle doll with. I hope my partner likes these autumn tones - very apt in Australia at the moment with all the trees leaves turning beautiful red and russet tones.
I had a lovely lunch with my patchwork girlfriends today. There are four of us who have been meeting once a month for over 19 years. They are the loveliest friends and I just love catching up as we always have so much to talk about... not the least quilts and art !!!!
Then I arrive home to fantastic art mail...yaayyyy!!! I received a gorgeous mini quilt I purchased from Baumcat (will post a picture shortly). Also received Martha Browns Round Robin fabric book to work on.... it is amazing, there will be pics to follow soon as I have to make my pages for her book. And, last but not least my copy of Quilting Arts and some funky felt ribbon arrived. I know what I will be reading for the next couple of days. I have had a quick peruse and now have to read in depth. Love this magazine.
Bye for now and happy arting ......
