I am going to go and take some pictures of some of my unfinished work. Perhaps publishing them here will give me a push to complete them.

Unfinished projects

I have many quilt tops that have never made it into a finished product. I am ruminating upon the idea of chopping them up and using them as a base for some art quilts. I rather like the idea of a 'traditional' quilt being used in an art quilt.

Twelve by Twelve

I am in the process of reading 'twelve by twelve the International Art Quilt Challenge'. I love it! It is so inspiring and I love looking at and reading about all of the diverse quilts. Do yourself a favor, and buy this book!

Sue Reno

Yesterday Sue Reno came to our guild to do a lecture on cyanotypes, heliographic prints and image transfers. Her lecture was amazing! She was down-to-earth, and made the process seem easy, exciting and a wonderful addition to my quilting repetouire! I am hoping to sell some of my bags on Ebay this week, so I can go and buy some of the cyanotype paper and transparancy sheets. Then I will try it out as soon as they get here!

Tuesday I tried out the ink with shaving cream technique I learned at the Tsukineko ink booth at the Hampton show. You basically smear shaving cream on a tabletop, drop spots of the ink all around and then use a pencil tip to draw lines horizontally and/or vertically to create a marbling effect. Cool! It was fun, and I used up every bit of that dye/shaving cream. I even dragged an old shirt out of the Good will bag to wipe up all the end mess and I am going to add that to my fabric stash.

I have been very inactive here on my blog. I make a resolution to add to it every night, do great for a few days, and then it goes by the wayside. :( This time I am really going to try to write at least once a week. I think this will help me to look at what I am doing and when, and improve.

Xmas Dotee Dolls

So I really had fun making these dolls! Great for doing in front of the TV, and another great idea for using up those scraps!
