I had a great time taking a workshop from Sue Benner yesterday. The workshop was called "Self Portrait: The Artist as Quilt." It was refreshing to work on something totally new with no particular requirements or deadlines. Just for the sake of doing it. I have doubts about self-portraits in general. And self-portraits in fabric, especially. I know it's a classic form, but I was never much interested in doing one myself. But, I'm glad I did.
Again with the green and purple. I didn't neccessary intend to work in this color palette, but those are the fabrics I brought without even really thinking about it. Surprised? Maybe you remember this fabric too.
Speaking of green, see my new iron as recommended by Sarah Smith? It's great.
My friend Jo took this picture. I'm very hard at work apparently.I have plans to finish it today and/or tomorrow so I can bring it to show at tell at the Dallas Area Fiber Artists meeting on Monday. Sue will be giving a program about her experience jurying Quilt National. I think it's going to be very interesting. Join us if you're in the area.
