Do I think I am Lucky because I am;
or am I Lucky because I think I am?
I was Lucky enough to have spent the weekend at a friend's house getting my Arts and Old Lace challenge done. Until last weekend, I was dangerously close to giving up, I had started to implement my plan and was over thinking and not letting the creative process flow. I basically had surrendered to not finishing, but somehow I packed up my supplies/designs and took those to my friend's house. Tim Gunn's voice in my head said "Make it Work" and I feel like I hit one out of the park with my Arts and Old Lace piece! Definitely, made it work!
Artistic Artifacts in Alexandria, Virginia on July 21. Arts and Old Lace is the younger sister of the Power Suit Challenge. My Power Suit "Cognition" is out there in the world traveling about!
So here is my nudge... I've challenged myself to 12x12x12x12
I'm creating 12 simple art quilts in 12 days (12"x12" size) - I'm on day 3 and am enjoying the creative push - and I'm not over-thinking, or over-planning, and am really enjoying the play of creating something for no real reason. I'm going to be self-directed during this process and not share about them til I am done. I'm using what I have at home, which could be altered fabric or blocks from my orphan blocks box. I'm working fast, lots of other things going in my life these 12 days. I've got a few going at once in several stages, as of right now, 2 are done, one in progress and another in design, plus there are some techniques in my "I want to try list" and some themes in the "hmmm list". I'm going all the way thru quilted, but am holding off on binding/ sleeve/ labeling. I am making notes on lessons learned, experiments, hints and technique. I'll be sharing these tidbits along with photos. I'll reveal on June 12, 2012 at 12 midnight.
Just yesterday I found another ladybug in my car - this time she was on my shoulder... hmm, what's coming my way next?
