TIF Update 2

Well, it's the 10th and I've decided that one of the qualities in the people I admire is creativity. I think being creative is taking a risk that you might fail in whatever you are attempting. So, I'm going to jump in with both feet.

I've been doing a lot of fusible applique using batiks. When I'm cutting out the shapes I put all the little scraps in a plastic bag, (its not my fault, I'm a Virgo, I have to do things like that). Now I have a very full bag of little scraps that I don't want to just throw away.

I'm going to sort those scraps by color and make a new fabric with the scraps. Then I'm going to embellish them and maybe even make a small landscape, I'll have to see after I sort them. I'll post a picture when I get them sorted, hopefully in the next day or so. I'm thinking I want to work with green first.

Off to sort!

Good on you for making a start. I'm a bit overwhelmed with possibilities myself,so many that I can't decide which to focus on. I think that's the quality I admire then, the ability to FOCUS on the job at hand. How do I show that, then? LOL.

This sounds like a great plan! I bet once you make your 'new' fabric it will inspire you as to what it wants to be next.
