Feeling that creative energy again
I am feeling the urge to create today. It must be the lack of sun outside, the greyness that is all around me on a cold, bone chilling wintry morning. I can feel that creative energy right down to my fingertips just waiting to release something wonderful. I get that feeling quite often, don't you? And when I do, I have the need to make something right there and then, at the very moment it takes over. What you see in this picture was one of those days the quilting muse infused energy into me and screamed for something to be produced and out of me came this little 8.5" x 11" quiltlet. I gave much thought to who I was. I knew that I wanted to used my hand and show my energies. I used Paris map fabric in the hand to show that I am an avid traveler. Each orb entwined in the creative energy (bias tape) shows just a touch of who I am. I am a night owl and there you see the moon. I couldn't live if I wasn't owned by a pet, so I knew that the paw print fabric was perfect, and who can create without music?? So what do you do when the quilting bug bites you hard???
