Oh Fiddle-De-Dee!

January 14, 2010

Creating is like meditation to me.  Actually, being absorbed in general has a hypnotic effect. I wake up and find myself hours from where I was, and look back in amazement at what my effort-channeling has wrought. 

Case in point, today’s computer work.  I was listing my remaining tapestries into “New Arrivals” on, doing a bit of research for someone, just busy busy – and when I got up to do something unrelated, I was shocked to find the time to be 3:00 p.m.   No way?!?  I had to eat lunch at 3 in the afternoon!

Here is one of the time-sucking culprits.  I know that sounds bad, but it isn’t meant to, not really.  It is my darling, my sweet, cricket fiddler.  I just love this piece!  Go have a read about this little tapestry: Fiddle-de-dee.


Text Collage Antique Buttons G-clef Tiny Instruments 

Organic, earthy, and tactile these works ask to be experienced with all of your senses. Constructed using assemblage and collage techniques, incorporating resurrected public domain images that have been digitally altered, items like stones, feathers and other natural finds, beads; hand dyed, distressed fabric; handmade paper and a variety of mixed media materials.    This 10"x13" piece is hung via a rod pocket on its back.

    Excellent. Who needs lunch? However, I do find “researching” on the computer much more comfortable than anything else. I think we are going to have to have some “new rules” here.

    Come help me set up a work area! LOL! I have my sewing machine and I can see that this addition will generate a mess that will end creativity (oc person here who can only work in neat).

    What a cute cricket fiddler,even if he is a time stealer! It does feel weird though when so much time goes by you don’t even notice, you feel like the time disappeared. I hope you are getting yourself all settled in and that your back is feeling better. It sounded like torture. Have a great evening and a super Friday!

    From the bottom of my heart dear friend, I thank you for your kind words. I hope that finally my struggle has been sorted out with the proper antidepressant and control of the Rheumatoid Arthritis pain. I am sorry that we have drifted apart because of my illness, but I know that you are a very special person, and I hope that I can remedy this very soon. I feel like I am nearing normal, and I hope that your move has been a happy one, and that your very special talents continue to thrive. Your store is amazing, and I intend to be a customer in the near future.

    I send you my love and thanks…
