With the support of friends and family, she spent many hours preparing for the wedding and getting the property ready for guests. Frankly, she was glad that the time line was relatively short since she can’t imagine spending a year or more planning and prepping for a wedding like some modern day brides do.
Once back in Virginia, life was back to the annual tasks of setting up a new classroom and getting the school year started with a new schedule in a new room.
So, by the end of September she had given herself a good old fashioned talking to and decided she needed to get back to her machine embroidery and other creative pursuits. She took a class at Artistic Artifacts, taught by Sue, where she made a fat-quarter pop-up from The Fat Quarter Gypsy. She used hand dyed fabric which had been screened with PGFiber2Art’s crackle screen. Time to use up some of this stash!Photoshop Elements. She wrote a proposal to offer an Open Studio thermofax printing day also at the store. We'll let you know when this is scheduled. Perhaps, some of you will be able to come and use our screens and print away for an entire day? Another creative endeavor was this sun print with a Thermofax screened tree for Halloween.
Anita Goodesign products. Let’s hope it gets her out of this funk! The next creative inspiration will be a workshop at the November VCQ meeting in Martinsville, along with viewing The Art of the Quilt exhibit at the Piedmont Arts Center.
In the meantime, Super Baby has been churning out some fall mug rugs from Kreative Kiwi Embroidery.
So, bit by bit Elizabeth is getting her creative groove back! We will be participating in the Artistic Artifacts open house/handmade sale on December 3 where we'll have some screen printed scarves, wall art, mug rugs and other items for sale. Come see us!
