I can't believe it

The shunt in my head has been malfunctioning for about two weeks now; I am in so much pain that everything is either hazy or blanked out in my mind. For the first time in two years, I have lost my creative drive. I can't believe I got anything done...somehow I accomplished the following few things:

Embroidered snowflakes sewn on Solvy, stiffened with Golden Medium Matte, spray painted with a glittery paint, and hung on my Christmas Tree:

Art cloth for a round robin group I am in (Complex Cloth yahoo group). The first person did the initial gray/green dye. I did a bleach discharge using a swirly stamp. Then I stamped all the discharge spots with the same swirly stamp in every shade of green I had in my textile paint stash. And on it goes to the next person:

For another Yahoo group (I can't remember which one, but I have until mid-Jan to find out) we are swapping needlefelted ATCs. I used several colors of muted wool roving and needlefelted by machine. Then I bobbin-stitched the swirls with a thick, glittery black thread. On top is the best part: three hand-dyed, pleated strips of silk made into flowers. Oh and a cloisonne bead in the center. I hope the recipient likes it!

Now I have to start preparing for a big Christmas Eve celebration at my house. The biggest and worst part: putting away all of my fiber art supplies that are spread out all over the house wherever there is room. Happy Holidays to all!


  1. Hang in there, my love. The creative spark will return....

    Love you

  2. God Bless you! It will come back just do push so hard.
