A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Parts of something of the anatomical sort

Today I tried to work on the latest piece of the Exquisite Corpse round robin and I'm sorry that I can't show you a picture of what I'm doing (until the end reveal). This particular round has me a lot more intimidated than the last ones did, but I refuse to let my fear get to me. I'm gonna do this! I know I'm not the only one who isn't sure of what they're doing, so I don't feel like the odd man (woman?) out.

Thank goodness we have a pretty decent library here so I'm able to take out lots of books to skim through for ideas for things like this. Their craft/art section isn't wonderful...lots of books, but most of them are from the 60's & 70's and not so much 'up' on what is current today. They are trying to get more in, but there are lots of financial restrictions these days and the artsy side of things most often gives way to the fiction side. There are approximately 20 branches within our local system so I make use of the inter-library loan feature a lot, which helps. Never let it be said that I don't keep their circulation numbers up!!

I'm sorry about all the links. I didn't put them there.If they are a nuisance you can choose not to allow them.
I'm sure you will be more than able to cope with the corpse!

Thanks for your comments. I certainly am thinking about christmas!! Every year I say to myself, "oh I should made some of those and sold them..." so that is actually the plan!. No sales, then I guess someone will get a lovely gift!
