I finished these last week, just did not get around to posting until today. I have had the worst cold of the season…at first I thought it was Spring allergies, but now I’m calling it what it is a virus. I am on the mend but I still feel like a bobble-head doll and much to my families joy…have no voice. This too shall pass with my dose of antibiotics and tea.
The question for the month was what do I call myself? This is in reference to my art work, because I am a woman and I have many titles…Woman, Wife, Mother, Grandmother, Friend! But in my artwork I would refer to myself as a needle-artist or needlepointer. I am not found of the term fiber, I think it is to broad. I also think stitcher is too broad and crafty. I think we need to define ourselves as much as possible and especially as artists, whether we are a quilter, needlepointer, acrylic painter, oil painter, mixed media, whatever we choose…we are artists and we do make this a better world.
