Sketching and new book

Today the postman brought me the book I ordered from Terri Stegmiller
‘Creative Paper Quilts’.
Terri has autographed it and also has put a little word in it.
She also has put an ATC in the book as ‘thank you’ :
The book is full of refreshing ideas on making little paper quilts.
On the other hand I started to sketch again, on this project :
This is a picture I took while in Houston. I altered the colours a bit with my photo software and started to sketch.
I see some fibre possibilities in the picture but I have to make some more sketches.
Some works need to grow a bit. What I like already are the colours : a purple background with some pink and some green and the yellow/orange flowers.

For the ‘Marseille VI L’Estaque’ I started to look for the right fabric in my stash.
I do not want to buy new fabric, so let’s be creative and inventive !
And I do not want this quilt to be larger than 1 yard.

Almost Christmas and still no decorated tree. I have to admit that I love Christmas trees but not in my home. When the children were little I had a little tree, but now that they’re grown up and more away than at home and that I’m working all days…. I prefer to create when I have some hours off.

“You see things; and you say, 'Why?'
But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"
George Bernard Shaw

Write you soon
