More Than I Can Use In a Single Lifetime

Even the back of a stitched piece, which is just stitces on white paper, offers many possibilities for play.

And, as always, every one that I create can be used as a collage paper, or stitched applique for further works. They can also be painted on, slashed, burned, ripped and re-stitched, stenciled over, stamped on ~ you get the idea, I know you do. I have already made more of these than I can use in a single lifetime, and the fever has still not subsided. Unfortunately, a stash is tough to relocate after reincarnation.

I took the backs from yesterday’s post, and tweaked them a bit:

About CarolWiebe

Art entices, inspires, and delights me. Art is a vehicle for laughter, tears, wonder, enlightenment--taking me on a constant path of discovery. You can't say that about housework (except, perhaps, for the crying part).

    It’s been too long since I last visited your blog. There’s only two words to describe how I feel after visiting: pure joy. Your work is so beautiful and inspiring – seeing it always makes me want to go create immediately! I had no idea you were a librarian; that is my dream job. :) Have a lovely day, Carol!

      Sheri, your encouragement means a lot to me.

      When I decided to do a Master of Library and Information Science I thought I might become a manager in a public library. Instead, I ended up in the school system, and have mainly been involved with kindergarten students. It’s funny how one’s journey evolves, sometimes. I think those students have taught me a LOT about JOY.

I LOVE hearing from you!
