This is a music track called Up the Waterfall. It’s only 90 seconds long, but I promise you will enjoy it. The artist is my cousin Jon Parry who can be seen performing regularly at the Owl ‘n Thistle, 808 Post Alley in Seattle, WA. I’ve only had the pleasure of hearing him play on a few occasions, but his music blows me away.
Lately I’ve been into what I think of as “instant gratification creations”. I just do whatever is quick and easy, rather than obsessing about doing it “right”.
So I needed a quick label for my skyline quilt. I used a pencil to sketch a skyline and added my name and contact info, then copied it onto fabric. I touched up the fabric copy with an ultra-fine Sharpie pen. That’s it!
You know what? I like it more than any quilt label I’ve ever done.
An easy way to create a custom label for your quilt
This beautiful art was created by Elizabeth Barton and it’s called: Brush or scissors? It really speaks to my life right now, should I spend my precious free time today painting or sewing?
Elizabeth Barton is probably trying to decide between fine art painting and sewing a gorgeous art quilt. My dilemma seems very pedestrian in comparison. My “painting” is my backyard gazebo.
This home improvement project is eating up huge chunks of my free time, though I have to admit I am enjoying it immensely. When I paint, I am totally immersed in the experience and it’s a great feeling. I love being outdoors. My dogs patiently watch me and seem to be wondering “Why is she hanging out on our turf so much these days?”
Like Elizabeth Barton, I love to create. I love it so much, I’m not going to apologize for my efforts or categorize it any way except to say it’s my art and I love it.
