weekend project

Originally uploaded by leap-of-faith.
I wanted to do something small this weekend to try and get me inspired again - so here it is... a small notebook cover.
Quilting inspired by a walk at the beach with the patterns of foam left by the waves on the sand.

dyed fabric

All I managed to do creatively today was to dye this small piece of fabric, I just made up a couple of tablespoons of dye and played with that - just needed a break in my day!

Every week on the Artists Way you take yourself on an Artists Date - something that you do by yourself and basically have some fun with your "inner child / artist".
As a child I loved to play in the garden with picking flowers and playing with them, so this is my play in the garden for this week!

the artists way

Originally uploaded by leap-of-faith.
OK here is my project for the next 12 weeks!
Feel free to join in if you also feel inspired - there is a Yahoo group up and running at Artists Way Yahoo Group and also an associated group at flickr Artists Way flickr Group so there is lots of support out there is you wish.(Drop me an note if you are also doing the book and want to share)

The book is basically a 12 week course in "discovering and recovering your creative self" with weekly reading and tasks. A lot of fun as well as hard work.

I have done The Artists Way before, about 4 years ago and it made a huge difference to my creativity and what I though about me being a 'creative".

Had some fun with making a beaded charm bracelet over the holidays. I received these beads as part of a prize from a Quilt Show for my 5 Trees quilt.

It is ... oh so long since I have posted, got plenty of excuses though!!
Anyway I miss not posting and miss all the wonderful feedback so I will be trying hard!
This is a quilt I finished in time for Xmas for a friend of a friend. She wanted a poppy theme so these are my idea of abstracted poppies.
