I ran across it later and looked up the names. I was amazed and enthralled at this world of textile artists that I never knew existed. I had taken a Nancy Crow class but didn't know how it fit with what I did. The more I looked at others works, the more I was amazed. I wanted to be part of this wonderful world -no matter how small or insignificant-and started taking classes to take traditional quilting to a different path. The textile artist path...the beginning of something different.
But as a thank you to my husband -for Christmas- I purchased a piece of Paula's art-as a thank you to being inspired by three amazing women. The names on a card. It's a beautuful vase made from a reclaimed gutter off a house in Stowe. I know he loves it- it is a piece of Stowe, a piece of art from a new friend and a piece of thank you from me. I wanted it to be a vase as Paula intended it to be. But Marc just wants it to be- on his desk...( I put this pretty vase on the windowsill for the photo)
So, what inspired you?
Must run to actually sew again. Happy Sewing, my friends.
