Thank You

Mariss, of Fabrications, posted the question I have been asking myself…Should I be writing about the fun I am having with fabric and thread during these sombre and scary times?”
Thank you, Mariss. I agree that writing nothing at all is not a good alternative. I believe we need to continue with our art and crafts in order to stay emotionally healthy during these times. Reading posts and viewing the work of others is something I look forward to doing each day. We need to take care of ourselves, in order to take care of others. Thanks to everyone who continues to post and share.

I am sharing Today’s Art for April 2 and 3. For April 2, I used scraps to make a fabric collage of a house. The text fabric had some words I thought fitting for these times: Home Sweet Home; Hello Life! ; Create. Making this piece was a form of a Gratitude prayer for me.
On April 2, I had Zoom time with my granddaughter. I recently read about the hacking problems with this online tool, so I do not know if I will be having other Zoom sessions. I will be talking to my sons about this. On our chats, we include drawing activities. This time, we also wrote an acrostic poem. When we draw, we take turns giving directions on drawing something. Sometimes, we start with the same basic shape and each draw something based around this shape. On this  particular day, she was wearing her owl robe. I could see her head bobbing up and down as she was drawing. I could not help but chuckle every time I saw her owl head. I pen sketched it and showed it to her. Then, today, I decided to thread sketch it and make a square. I wanted to capture this precious memory on fabric.
Last spring, my friends and I went on a bluebonnet outing. The bluebonnets in Texas are a beautiful site.  My second project for today was embroidering some bluebonnets.
I also spent some time working on my 1 1/2 inch square quilt. I cut more fabric, and completed one block.
Take care, everyone.

  1. I am still chuckling — thank you for sharing this delightful, owlish thread sketch. Yes, we will continue doing what we do best and writing about it. Thanks for the blogging solidarity. Keep strong and stitching

  2. I may not always comment, but I do enjoy your art vids/posts. The ‘home sweet home’ one touches me deeply – strange to say as it’s quite whimsical, right?
    Keep on keepin’ on, Chela.

  3. I miss bluebonnets! Probably why I can’t quit buying Moda’s Texas wildflower fabric line from Sentimental Studios. I wonder if we can get a virtual bluebonnet tour? Think I’ll go ask Ms. Google…
