I got together with a quilting friend last week and we watched a couple of quilting videos - one from Katie Pasquini Masopust and the other was the work of Leni Levenson Wiener. Both were very inspiring.
My quilting friend and I have made ourselves a challenge. Choosing a colour scheme out of a hat, we will choose colours, and complete a piece using the same photo as inspiration but with our different colour schemes. I got 'analogous' and she has 'achromatic'. It will be fun to see what we come up with. Oh, and each of us will give the other one of the colours she has to use. Lots to do......and I haven't forgotten 'Kuan Yin" - still in the planning stages.
I have to say that my heart is breaking for the people of Haiti and I just hope that they will get the help they need over the next few months. I have seen and heard so many heartbreaking stories and stories of bravery. Their plight is never far from my mind. I feel so fortunate to live in Canada in a solid home with food to eat and the opportunities to foster my creativity. I hope everyone who can, will think about contributing to the organizations who are in Haiti caring for its people who already had more than their share of suffering.
