I hate to admit defeat, but I have decided not to do the Make Art Every Day challenge. I do try to be creative and productive every day, but it's not always something that I can photograph and put on my blog. Yesterday's attempt at "paper cloth" was disastrous. To speed up the drying, I clipped it to a hanger and let it dry that way instead of letting it dry flat. Well, it curled up and wrinkled up and ironing it down didn't help much. So I fused it to a sheet of Peltex which gave me a piece that is much too thick for a bookmark. I'm not going any further with it. Too much time wasted.
I am starting a new quilt for a juried show that has a "received by" deadline of January 30, but since I am going away on the 21, my deadline is the 18th. I'm also going to make my own Christmas cards this year and my card blanks have not arrived, nor have I embossed my velvet. And then of course there are the holidays with all the decorating, shopping, wrapping, entertaining, etc. There's something to be said for quitting while you're ahead.
I will do as I have been doing before the challenge, posting when I have something new to show or news to share. I had been posting a couple of times a week and I hope to continue in that manner. Now onto my new quilt!
