I’d like to thank the Academy…
In a number of places around the internet there are “Days of the Year” listing the “official what makes this day special and/or what we celebrate.” This day is “Thank you Thursday!” Long before I fell madly, passionately in love with fabric I was madly, passionately in love with paper. The Current Catalog would come in the mail, before getting to the end of it I’d know what would be arriving at my door step as soon as possible. The pen aisle in the office supply store holds a special place in my hands. There’s nothing quite like a lovely instrument aiding the thought process along it’s glorious, ever pen-sive, journey.
Thank you Terry Knott, Jo Jo Hall, Maggie Knollenberg, Jenny Lyon, Cheryl Sleboda, Ebony Love, Debby Brown, Melissa Kanovsky, to name a few people I find fascinating. While this list is short there’s a longer one here.
Last night flitting through pictures I found this drawing I did sometime ago. There is a yearning to create this in stitching. I can see different colors in different spaces. I can also see a bit of trapunto or double batting to give this depth. I can see several different backgrounds including Radiance. Gosh I’d like to do this in several different backgrounds. Oh I can see Oatmeal Batik. Oh the brain gets going.
And then the yearning for paper and pencil asserts and I’m going to find that. After I do some piecing but paper and pencils. Oooh I’m getting pensive again.
Next month I’m participating in the Spring Clean Your Studio Blog Hop hosted by Cheryl. More about that later. Use the hashtag #springcleanyourstudiobloghop to follow.
