Quote for the day: “A true friend is someone who thinks that you are a good egg even though he knows that you are slightly cracked.” ~Bernard Meltzer
Creating pieces that make a statement doesn’t have to involve a lot of time or skill. Just because it’s simple doesn’t mean it can’t be beautiful.
As proof, I offer another of the beginner bags. Actually, there are several more but I’ll post the others another day. This pattern works up very quickly. And could easily be embellished and quilted.
Since I love larger prints and bold designs, I’ve left the pieces simple. It’s all about showcasing the print. In this case the print is Jane’s Hothouse Garden collection. These fabrics are still available online through fabric.com and equilter.com.
Says it all, doesn’t it? I’m a Luddite when it comes to books. No Kindle for me. I want to feel the book in my hands. I want to see them stacked around me–all my friends. I need to hear them whispering while I sleep.
This is the current state of the Sculpey clay creatures. I’ve been layering them with paint. I think their heads will be finished this week. After that, bodies. Or not! I’ll keep you posted.
Hope your week is off to a smooth start.
