About That Giveaway

Mother of Pearl ~ 2010 ~ 16x12 inches
My 1000th post on this blog will be next Friday, June 22.  And I'll be giving away this quilt.  The drawing will be next Friday morning so I can announce the winner on the 1000th post.

If you'd like to enter the drawing, leave a comment on this post anytime between now and next Thursday night.  Tell me about something creative that you'll do for yourself this summer (or winter). 

That's it.  That's all you have to do.  Have a great weekend, and good luck on the drawing.

I am organizing my supplies so I can find them when I need them. I know. It does not sound creative or fun but the results of the order (while not lasting long) will be greater creativity and lots and lots of fun.

I have a pile of soda soaked fabric waiting for some deconstructed screen printing to be done on them. Then onto further layers.

I love your work and hopefully, will own one of your works one day. As one of Jane Dunnewold's mastery students, I am spending six hours a day in the studio making complex art cloth. Every day I try a surface design technique, or try to improve my images to make a beautiful statement on cloth.

I really like this one-my colors. a perfect name.

Connie, whomever wins this beauty will be a very happy person! I have as my goal for the summer and beyond to let go and soar. I am not going to let physical disabilities hold me back, I am going to grab a paint brush, learn to paint, and attack the cloth! Oh, of course, I'll play with indigo, dyes, and stitch along the way. Thank you for 1000 posts of inspiration and beautiful art. xoxo

I will be opening up my barn workshop, plugging in the electric fry pan of beeswax, and getting on with some encaustic work. Can't wait!

I'm going to be weaving. I hope it's the long-procrastinated October exhibition piece.

Beautiful piece, Connie! As for being creative, I have a class in dyeing and batik I will be teaching next Saturday, then I have blocked out the entire month of July to focus on playing with various techniques in surface design. I will be re-visiting deconstructed screen printing, stamping, stenciling with dyes, gel glue resist, and who knows what else? It's going to be a fun month, followed by another class Aug. 4th where I will be co-teaching some of these techniques with my friend Wendy. Summer of fun! Best wishes on your 1000th post!

Oh, dear, I'm having such a dry spell right now! I'm just hoping to get back upstairs in my studio soon...and do AnYThinG creative!

Beautiful quilt, Connie!

Best way to get my creative juices flowing is an early morning walk, summer or winter.
Love your beautiful colour collages.
Cheers
Jo

Ahhh Connie, "Mother of pearl" is a beautiful name for a beautiful quilt ...
But mý beautiful "mother of three pearls" lives very close to us here (our own daughter with two wonderful grandkids and this cute little babyboy, four weeks old now ;-) !!!)
This spring I was very (creative) busy for the birth presents and now I have time for some other things at last: a little wedding-quilt, that is coming along nicely.
Of course there are some new plans for felting this summer and hope daughter can find a little timne for that too .... !
Happy 1000th !!! (by fááár not there myself ha !)

I'm hoping to finally transform the spare bedroom into a studio.

I am going to move my sewing machine from where it is to somewhere where I can access it more readily. Who knows from there. lol probably end up doing mending. In my dreams? start a quilt for a future grandchild.

What an exquisite quilt - gorgeous fabrics! Mother of Pearl is a perfect name for this piece.

I'm in the middle of reorganizing my tiny apartment. For years the neat freak side of me kept a very tidy 'normal' apartment, with my fabrics and threads squirreled away tidily in the cupboards. This meant taking stuff out for a project was often more trouble than it was worth, if I only had a few minutes here and there. Over the past few months I've started thinking of my place as a studio that happens to have a kitchen. The place is now a colourful mess and I love it! One whole wall is a now the design wall. My muse is so much happier.

Bonnie said...

How could I not comment! I just got my computer back from the doctor. I've been 5 days without. Happy 1000th!

I'm going to be spending more time hand stitching. It is almost like meditation to me; it brings me peace.

Marybeth said...

three posts to go...it has been a fun journey with you!

Dotti said...

I plan to play with all my mixed media supplies and leave some surprise art pieces secretly around town for others to discover and keep. Congrats on your upcoming millenium post!

It's summer and I'm participating in a free "read along" with liz Lamoreux and her "Inner Excavations." (http://www.lizlamoreux.com/inner-excavate-along) We are in Chapter 2 and I've excavated interesting memories from my past--so far all good memories! I am taking a drawing class at our local Art Center, and I'm spending the summer playing in my art sanctuary. I made 2 quilts in a lifetime: both in 1961-62 and swore off them because, well, I don't even remember! Probably because I did them completely by hand and became bored with that up and down quilting stitch. LOL. What once adorned my daughter's beds have become "extra" picnic-on-the-grass blankets!
