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.

I have been busy creating for the past few days and failed to post my work. First, I will add a few pics of our wonderful holiday with our kids here in DC. On Christmas Eve, we hopped on the metro and did a walking tour of DC. I have loads of pics but will only show a few here. We all had such a wonderful time together. I think it was the best Christmas ever! We toured the Smithsonian museums, galleries and the decorated White House (well, outside the gate, of course). After dinner downtown, we went to see the National tree. I think we all thought, wow, big hair, big bows! I will say it wasn't the prettiest tree I have seen. Those new big red bows (lights) by GE were sort of gaudy. I would have chosen nice, white lights. How about solar powered? Let's save energy. On New years Day, we went to Georgetown. We decided to hike the unimproved trail in Deer Creek Park. How beautiful it is! It is amazing that it is in the middle of town.

Our creative daughter designed and made this dog sweater. Emma is modeling it here. We may start a new business designing doggy wear together.

One of my resolutions is to post pictures of my artwork everyday. After all, I will "Do something creative everyday".
