Last Week I started playing with some fabric again with the hope that it would “oil the creative machine”.
And it did.
I had two pieces of the patched together batiks. I would make two 20″ throw pillows.
I decided to try some free hand quilting with the embroidery foot of my Bernina. I guess it’s free hand quilting. I only had two layers of fabric, no batting. I attached some muslin to the back for support.
I stitched abstract swirly designs on each square. No stabilizer in between the layers. I want it to crinkle with age and washings.
It was fun. I was able to really pick up speed after awhile.
This is what the back looked like.
I designed a simple vintage button closure at the top like a sack.
Better lighting outside to see the colors.
I’m not sure what I’m going to do with them yet. I’ll ponder while I start another project.
I am aware now that sewing and creating like this without a plan is much like Julia Cameron’s “Morning Pages” for me. That if I will just have the self discipline to sit down and create every day, settle myself into the process, my muse will show up…..every time.
Thanks so much for reading my blog. What are your “Morning Pages”? How does your muse appear?
