Last weekend was just what I needed...a creativity boost! I spent several hours on Saturday in the company of a fabulous group of women, led by friend and art quilter, Cathy Jeffers.
It was a bit of "Project Runway" and a bit of just plain fun. The invitation just said to bring a sewing machine, fabric, thread, and whatever other supplies we thought we might need for a day of quilting. Being my usual procrastinating self, I packed my bag about an hour before leaving with whatever random supplies were readily on hand.
We were each given a 14-inch square of quilt batting and roughly two hours to create a face, using whatever materials we had on hand. When time was called, we cut our quilt into four equal sections, kept one for ourselves, and traded away the remaining three. The final challenge...create a whole new face!
I am a woman with many hats...artist, retired art teacher, blogger, wife, mother, grandmother. In short, one very busy lady!
