Yesterdays news - December squares!
I missed one & admit to 'batching' one or 6 at the end there, a la Wen Redmond via a Quilting Arts Daily newsletter on using up scraps. What are my squares but scraps!
The next row up are flowers made out of loose bible pages found when tidying the charity bookcase at work. The next 2 & the middle 2 above were made when collaging into The Sketchbook - will I be finished by 2 weeks time? (that's why i didn't tell anybody I
was doing it!) The rest is the usual clearing up my desk & sticking it all down, Christmas cards & practicing some embroidery.
So my sad attempt at a mosaic of the 12 months, too tired to get it better - I will work on it!
July is lacking a bit, it kind of got missed in the fallout from actually becoming 50 & going away. Not an excuse, just fact. I'll photograph the books they're kept in soon, I can't believe I have a record of nearly 360 little tiny collages. What a great year. And I've loved all this world wide surfing this last year, too. Plan to do a lot more! I love blogs that share bits of the persons life, the inspirations, a little bit of sharing of the process of creating , walking thru their gardens & where they live. Some of the many 'challenges' would drive me nuts but some look great, I'll be browsing the sketchbook challenge, certainly.
This year's personal challenge? Simple; a collage a week, if not 2. One for the studio wall in the hope that we have a successful season come the Spring, & one to put aside for a solo exhibition I'll be having in September. That's enough to be going on with don't you think?
Thanks everybody, for being here in my little world.
