It's been an age since I wrote - Tuesday in fact. I have nothing to show - I am going through another one of those patches - maybe it's a mild depression but I'd rather think of it as a deep low spell.
What have I done? I have done a tiny bit I made a couple of quilted backgrounds A4 in size, using a couple of old pieces of fabric and transfer painted designs, but they are rubbish and have been thrown in the Un-Finished Objects (UFO) bin. They are just background pieces with no applique or surface decoration and I hate them. I have been reading lots of blogs and found that lots of people seem to set themselves challenges, making some sort of art every day for a period of time - I know I did this at the beginning of the year when I committed to make a postcard a day for a month. That seemed easy at the time but now it is getting harder and harder to come up with ideas.
I have been searching the Internet for exhibitions to visit within easy reach of here but I have no idea where to look. The embroiderers guild list some but there never seems to be anything close to me. I need physical inspiration - I need to see some textile art up close and I don't want to wait until October when I go to the Knitting and Stitching show.
Now I am going to stop before I make you all feel low too!!
