Last week on Art With a Needle
My big news of the week is that my newly cleaned-up sewing table has indeed motivated and enabled me to start sewing on a quilt. I think this is the first major quilt I've worked on in at least two years. Can't exactly tell you why I decided to take a sabbatical from quiltmaking, or why I decided to start again just now. But it does feel good to be back at the sewing machine.
Here's what I've done so far.
Here's my favorite miniature of the week. I sometimes feel that it's unoriginal to just find some random object and make a lot of knots onto it, usually with a couple of beads for good measure. But then I realize that's an important recurring theme in my art, and I should just embrace it. And I do love tying those knots -- so zen.
