Google Reader is my library for escape when life uses up all my time and there’s no time for quilting and art. The internet is an incredible tool that gives us the thrill of being able to enjoy these great techniques through these talented artists. So, I thought I’d tell you about a couple of blogs that I follow that have wonderful creative masters. The first is Blue Moon River by Susan Brubaker Knapp. I’m sure you’ve seen her name and work if you’ve ever opened a Quilting Arts magazine. Take a trip over to her blog and see her blue bird feathers and what she’s doing with them.
Another really great blog is Painted Threads by Judy Coates Perez. Her work is also often highlighted in Quilting Arts. She has done some great things with sewing aluminum craft metal and painting fabric to make ornaments and plaques. I have to login to my Quilting Arts emagazines and read more about this over the weekend.
The nice thing about reading about all these techniques is that reading about them doesn’t clutter my space. There’s enough clutter already – and reading and daydreaming is so much fun.
