the blip today the background stayed in too, thus not producing a great photograph but nevertheless encapsulating the entire year in one picture.
I will be writing about this project at some stage in the not too distant future (next year in fact!) but I'm not quite ready for that task at the moment. I need to sit down with pen and paper (how very old fashioned that sounds!) in order to gather my thoughts and reflections and once I'm done I will share it here.
In the meantime I will admit that when I saw them altogether on the floor I felt a strong pull to repeat the process again next year but I will resist. However at least once a month a journal quilt will come to be as a result of the challenges on the Sketchbook Challenge site so look out for those!
I've just added the picture above because one of my fellow blippers (Earthdreamer) offered to straighten and clean-up this picture for me and he did a marvellous job. Wish I knew as much about Photoshop as he does. If you're reading this, thanks Bob! And he is a fabulous photographer too!
I also produced 4 more Journal Quilts this year but haven't shared them because I'm required to keep them a secret according to the various competition rules. Two are on the theme of Boredom for the Textile Experiments travelling exhibition and two are black and white for the Journal Quilts Competition organized by Grosvenor Exhibitions. I'll share those with you when the time comes!
2012 is almost done and I'm hoping 2013 will be kind to us all and I can't wait to make more art in the New Year!
