creative everydayx2

Have I been creative? Yup! Crazy Saturday was spend organizing actors and costumes for the Russian School Christmas play. How many snowflakes? How many snow guards? How many daisies? How many princesses? That sort of thing... And how to make them all look fabulous on a very tight budget and time schedule. I'll be working on all those details for a while.Today I spent in my studio putting finishing touches on my Окошечки/Okoshechki/Little Windows that I plan on showing off in my long neglected Etsy store. I have even managed to photograph most of them before dark came. A bit more photography tomorrow and I'll be uploading them finally.
Some exciting news came today too! My friend Jane Davila's book is no longer a secret and is available to order. Doesn't the cover look fabulous?! I have a couple of pieces in it, so I'm dying to see it.

art quilts at play

My friends Jane Davila and Elin Waterston have a new book coming out this January. It's the follow up to their other book - The Art Quilt Workbook. Now they show you how to play with all that you have learned. An array of wonderful artists was asked to play and create the art in this book and I am lucky to be one of them. Here's a little teaser below, that's one of my "home:house" art quilts, did they choose me for the right topic or what? Oh and I have given a teaser about this book before, long long time ago when I first completed all the art. Take a look at this post. I had said back then that I wanted to try more 3D work, well... I still want to.. and I will eventually... ahem.. Meanwhile go to Jane and Elin's blogs and order your advance copy now! Oh and the book release party will be on February 21st at the Country Quilter. PS: I lowered all prices in my Etsy store, come shop!
