Hurray For Art!!!!

It's a chilly soaker in New England, today. It feels more like October than it does August. It's a great day to work on fiber art. I am working on a new series from my digital photos taken at Saratoga Race track. The first piece is now on my long arm and the second piece is on my easel. It is so much fun to apply the first color to the fabric and to watch the picture emerge! It reminds me of the days when I used to do some creative writing, and the words would just jump off my pen. Hurray for art! Where would we be without it!

Inspiration is Everywhere!!!

Over the last week, I have been showered with inspiration! My husband and I traveled to NY state in our RV, and visited my family. Being embraced by people we love is a wonderful tonic! On Monday we went to the horse races at Saratoga, something we had not done in many years, and I took pictures with future art quilts in mind! Yesterday we set off in the RV again, and visited the NH Craftman's Fair in Sunapee, NH. Booth after booth of creativity inspired me and I was able to applaud the work of my friends Michele and Wen! I love to admire the work of other artists. I feel inspired and ready to start another piece of fiber art!
