Creative Frenzy

I am in the middle of a creative frenzy - I had been re-reading my Cloth Paper Scissors and Quilting Arts magazines while I do my daily walk on the treadmill and my mind is bursting with things I want to try and things I want to make!

As a result I have several things "on the go" but these textile ATCs are finished for several trades I have happening at the moment. The foiled bits, glittery threads and and sequins really don't scan very well but I thought the whole lot looked rather nice on a piece of silk fusion paper I made a while back (and which forms the centre of the "flowers"). I am still finishing off several felted ATCs I have made using the Embellisher so they will have to wait until tomorrow. I'm also working on a set of blue inchies I am trading with the lovely Anne Lugherini.

I am supposed to be making my March Journal Quilt but I have decided I am not "in the mood" to make an abstract quilt based on a photo (which I what I had originally intended to do) so I have checked the other themes/techniques for this month and decided to go with "memories". Planning on starting tonight after dinner.

Joseph and I watched La Vie en Rose on Friday night as I have always loved Piaf's music but I had so little comprehension of her life! Needless to say I am now reading a biography (thanks to my mate Merle Ann, with whom I shared a little napkin art session yesterday.)

PS I love Easter and the four day weekend - it feels so luxurious to spread the necessary (and generally humdrum) bits of life over four days instead of the usual two!

I find I can't read Cloth Paper Scissors or Quilting Arts unless I know I have a block of time I can dedicate to making something directly afterward. Terrible, isn't it?!

No wonder you a 'super woman, Debbi, reading on the tredmill!! I always feel breathless when I've finished reading your posts LOL
Love the new ATC's, so colourful and cheerful with this awful weather we're having in the UK at the moment.

I always knew you were talented! I have enough trouble walking on the treadmill without trying reading at the same time! I am impressed.

I love the orangey felted ATCs and these too. They are sooo colorful. You have a very creative page here. I am going to put your link on my blog so I or others can come and feast!
