I also love a good project. I don't just play so much. I NEED a project. I NEED to feel like I am working towards a goal. I give myself deadlines and make myself meet them. Am I sick? This week the girls will be in soccer camp; Court from 9:00 - 4:00 and Whit from 1:00 - 7:00. My father in law is going on vacay and will not be at the shop, so I am going to work with J.R. and answer the phone and wait on customers. Kinda fun and I will have time to make art between customers. I can drag my stuff downstairs from my studio and have at it. I have decided on four projects that I want to make:
1. This is a must - a wedding guestbook that I am doing as gift. This is the first priority. I want to have this done by noon on Wednesday.
2. An art purse/tote with a flat bottom so it will stand up and lots of pockets. I am using canvas duck as the base and then doing crazy patch and scribble sewing on the top. Focal point/theme undecided. It will be revealed to me when the time comes.
3. A pair of art capris, like the art jeans I made after the quilt show. I am using a pair of khaki pants I got on the clearance at walmart for 3 bucks. I am doing - big shock - concentric circles, hearts and curliques. It's what I like right now.
4. A big, juicy livre d'artiste called 1967 with tie dyed pages, drawings and commentary on the events of the best year ever, MY year, 1967. I want to start hunting and gathering this week so I have all the stuff amassed and the book underway to work on at Hummingbird. I envision it to look like a funkfied history book.
I'll let you know how things are going. The pics are more pages from my the book I made at Arrowmont. This spread has a little slick to it, with the dragonfly being cut an redrawn on the next page.
