Boy, what a February! The record breaking snowfall amounts in Massachusetts, NH and Maine have made new records and have crippled the MBTA in Boston. My boss in Boston and the boss from NJ ok'd for us to work from home due to the inclement conditions. During the down time, I focused on new activities in the fiber arts, quilting, sewing and design. I have also read the popular book "Fifty Shades of Gray".
Fifty Shades was an extremely easy read, one hot and steamy story. I actually read the book in a day and half - a first for me. The book certainly spiced-up Valentines Day for Richie and I. I am now reading the first book in the series of "Game of Thorns", which is expertly written. The complete opposite from Fifty Shades (lol).
Below are my projects that I have dabbled in. Learning sewing has been very fun and challenging. I have also learned how to sew with yarn for boarders in an applique technique. My new inspiration artist is Rose Hughes. Rose an amazing mid-western fiber artist. She must have been inspired by Georgia O'Keefe - I can see it in her artwork. Please see her link http://www.rosehughes.com/
Below are the pictures of the projects I created in the past month.
I almost forgot! I also did some painting. I normally work with oils, but I wanted to try acrylics for the first time. I did ok, but I prefer my oils and I also like watercolor for illustrations and 2-d graphics. Below are the pics of my paintings.
Create on, create on!
I would love to hear from you.
