Torn Between Two Loves
Well as you might have figured out, I love, love working with fabric. I have since I was a little girl. I can't walk by a bolt of fabric or even clothing without reaching and touching the fabric to see how it feels. I love the colors and the textures and the way it drapes and falls. I like to sew clothing, curtains, pillows, purses, quilts, you name it. It is my "first love" of crafting.....and then.....about a year ago, I discovered fused glass.......and now I am often torn between the two loves. I like the sound glass makes when you cut it and I love how it looks one way when I place it in the kiln and I never know exactly how it will look when it comes out. I don't own all of the equipment necessary to create in glass, but I take classes at a local art center once a week. So, I go to class and make my creation. Then, when I come back a week later.......surprise! Here are couple of examples of what I have done in class. It is loads of fun and I am having a blast playing with it, but in the end my heart will always belong to the fabric! And like a true best friend, the fabric is always there patiently waiting for me.
