Around and about

If you're thinking it's been a little quiet here on the blog, you're probably right.  The Twelves are busy working on some important "homework" assignments, writing our BOOK for Lark.  We're having such fun comparing notes and revisiting old posts.  We are looking forward to sharing all of this with you in due course.

In the meantime, the Blue White Black reveal is not until 1 March 2010. If you are interested in seeing some new material, why not check out some of our Friends & Followers including:
  • 12 Connected is a new group of fiber artists that have banded together to create a series of twelve 11"x17" art quilts over a two year period.The first theme is "Sanctuary" and they are due to share their completed quilts any day now;
  • Art for 12 revealed their fur-themed quilts at the end of 2009 and are now exploring the theme of "Connected".  Their blog is in Dutch but there's a translation widget in the side bar;
  • there are all sorts of wonderful mandela quilts over at Art Quilts Around the World, maybe they were channelling Terry's Twelfth of Twelve work;
  • Digital to Textile: 8 Views is a new challenge that Karen belongs to. Every two months, after a sumptuous pot luck dinner, one of the group members disseminats a black and white photo to the group. Each artist, using textiles as the primary medium, will create a work using that photo as inspiration. The maximum perimeter is 122 inches.At the dinner held the month following receipt of the photo, they will share our project-in-process and critique each other's work;
  • Terri has also joined a new theme challenge group - Fiberactions.  They are working in a 16"x20" format.  Their first theme was "Initiative" and now they are exploring "Communication";
  • the 12 by 12 Project are now up to their sixth theme - Chaos.
Chaos is a pretty accurate description of my studio right now so I'm going to go and start tidying up.  I could be some time...
