This little birdie expresses my sentiments exactly. Just as little time creating at my sewing machine puts me in my happy place–something I haven’t had time to do a lot of lately.
As with my last post, I’ve playing with the color on the computer. The above painting is the original. Below is the computer enhanced version. I do kind of like the brighter colors which I can’t seem to create as well with watercolor.
I was able to do a little painting on my recent vacation. Sewing is a familiar theme and thread is definitely a part of my life. I doubt I ever leave the house without some thread attached to my clothing. Some people seem to think they need to point this out to me–as though I should be embarrassed to be seen that way in public. To me it is a badge of honor!
I spend a lot of time THINKING about sewing and quilting. I read magazines and books. Search Flicker, blogs and Pinterest. I drool over fabric on the internet and in fabric stores (and buy an awful lot of it) I draw quilt ideas in my sketchbook and all together fantasize about quilts all the time but have little to show for it. So I painted this little pic to remind myself that nothing will ever happen unless I sit down and DO IT.
