The Stitch Dreams
Spent the afternoon wandering around the Cambridge Arts Festival. Entertaining, especially for kids, but I was surprised by the lack of crafters' booths. Lately I've been interested in fabric and craft artists like Terese Agnew, Abby Glassenberg, et al. My ceramics teacher in college, Aurora Hughes Villa, had some influence on me in that regard. And for the last two years, I've concerned myself with what I call nesting, so imagery of birds, nests, etc. has covered my sketchbooks. I need to take one thing at a time, though, and learn more of the how-to before I come up with yet another idea. That's always been my problem.
