Probably the weirdest thing I do is something that I’ve admitted to almost no one before this. My husband knows and at this point he just laughs when I get started–or tries to convince me not to start in the first place.
Then, another friend got married and, of course, I felt the need to create something. I became entranced with the fiber art of the very famous Susan Shie and decided to make a journal quilt of my own. It’s nothing like Susan’s, but I created an art quilt based on the wedding–I painted and journaled and hand-quilted for quite awhile. It’s got the verses from their services, the lyrics from teh songs they danced to, quotes about love, and my thoughts about the couple. The binding isn’t completely finished, but I’m not sure if I’m going to bother–I mean, it’s not like I’m actually going to give it to them, right?
