It's true--I love to have breakfast with art! And my favorite place to sip coffee sometimes is my worktable--preferably, with the sun streaming in and my art journal open.
Peek in on beautiful, creative, mad, messy, super-organized, unorganized, in the floor, on a bed, by the window worktables across the planet. Visit our host, Mrs. Dunnit, and all the links right here.
If you and I got to visit last week, you know I started a new patchy bag project. I want to create some fabulous "wearable art" and make a fun cross-body with patches of fabric stash I like. I am embarking on week two, and have made some nice discoveries. For one thing, I am stitching in a lot of patches of embroidery--some that I have done, and a delightful piece I found in my stash, done by my lovely, talented mother-in-law.
|My MIL embroidered this adorable motif many years ago.|
Another patch (hidden in the stack) is from a pair of jeans my daughter wore all the time when she was ten years old--with a sparkling butterfly. And another patch is from some fabric in a costume I wore when I played one of the wives a few years ago in the "King and I." So now these patches are getting personal, and I am loving this project! Look at my happy face--I am over the moon about it!
I hope you are following your dreams, making your art your way, and having a wonderful week!
EAT, WRITE, DREAM, AND STITCH THE WORLD.
And one more thing--Minnie says hello, and Joseph says hello, right before cuddling up to my Valentine bear!
