I am pulling out all sorts of fabric scraps in Christmas colors and diving into drawing of all kinds of Christmas ideas to put together in preparation of a blog hop I have agreed to do. See the link on my sidebar.
|The big reveal will be July 30th!|
I love that I committed myself to show something I have never done before. (That statement has just a touch of sarcasm but only a touch because it is thrilling to learn a new thing.)
My friend, Becky reminded me that the first time I met her she was showing me how to weave baskets and I told her on that day, "I have always believed I can do anything. I just need the instructions."
That may sound like a touch of arrogance but the truth is it is just the sort of upbringing that enabled me with a confidence to try new things. Now, that does not include trying things like sushi....I just can't go there! I am not a great admiring of things fishy. And trying new things does not mean you master it all or that you enjoy it all but just that you are willing to give it a good try.
So here I go....trying a new thing.
Paper Piecing is the new direction I am heading!
So I have drawn out my plans and am trying to figure out how it all works together...
July 30th is my day to show it all off.
I have a month.
I also, want to put in a plug for all of you people out there up for a good Sketchbook Challenge.
I recieved my copy of the book.
Sketchbook Challenge (Amazon link)
by Sue Bleiweiss
by Sue Bleiweiss
and have been pouring over it.
It is top notch!
I recommend it and I am not getting any sort of royalties
and have no connections to anyone in the book other than being a follower on some of their blogs.
I am just recommending it because it is a good book and to my surprise it has connected my painting interests with my new found fabric arts into some of the sketchbook projects.
So today, get your "I CAN" on and try something new!
I promise it will make your day better!
