where did the week go?

Good grief, it's July 6th! Time has gotten away - it has been a highly stressful week and we won't be coming home till July 15th, so a long week stretches ahead of us. I actually printed some fabric today that I didn't hate, so that's progress. I started documenting the process with my camera but gave up halfway through and cut to the chase. Unfortunately, I don't have a sewing machine so I can't really do anything with these till I get home. And even then - who knows? I plan to print for a couple of hours a day but think I'll have to make a fabric run because no matter what you do, it looks better if the underlying fabric is decent. I still mean to get back to my art discussion, but if you are on the QuiltArt list, you need to read Carol Sinnereich's recent post. It echoes an almost identical conversation I had last week on the same subject. Either a piece works as art or it doesn't. The medium is irrelevant. N'est-ce pas?

You are so right. Have thought this often about some of the so called art quilts that are just stuff on fabric.

either it works or it doesn't.
precisely.
giving it a label doesn't make it so (DuChamp not withstanding , grin.)

Rayna, you are in my thoughts daily.
