What to Do Today...

I am currently having an artist's block. I don't know what to do today. I could do this: machine quilt. I have several tops that need to be finished. These are a couple of practice pieces that I hang on my design board.

Or I could paint some fabric with Setacolor like I did for the pear below. Or I could paint some paper towels and create some paper fabric and make something from it.

Or I could paint and stamp some ugly fabric so I will use it (like the fabric below.) I found a tub full of old fabric scraps from the 90's when I first started quilting. I can't believe some of the colors! Either I use it or toss it. Today, it would be nice to invite a few quilting friends over and see what we could make out of this. But my quilting buddies live too far away.

So, I will print out my 40% off coupon for the local scrap book store and go shopping. : ) When you are undecided, just shop.

Maybe you could use some of those fabric scraps up as the bottom layer for fabric paper??? The pictured one is beautiful.

Hi Vivi,

I wish I could be there, to sit and stitch and paint and other fun stuff. Miss you bunches here in Nerk!
