This is a theme very near and dear to my heart. As Donna from Mixed Media Mondays so beautifully said, sharing our art gives us a chance to connect with such wonderful like minded people. I wanted to share a piece of artwork for this challenge that is part of a wonderful project coordinated by the very talented and dear Monica Magness from Girl Gone Thread Wild. I was honoured to be asked to create a 10" X 10" quilt square for the 2009 "Pink Artist Block Party 2009". Monica sent a package filled with material, scraps and tiny squares left over from last year's Block Party. It took me several months to get up the courage to begin because, as you know, I'm not very confident or experienced with fabric. I purchased some images from a favourite artist of mine, D.J. Pettit, and finally set to work. It was friendship that I had in mind when I created this square. I was thinking about all of the women in my life who are there for me in good times and in bad. Just knowing that they are near whether it be in proximity or via telephone, email etc. is comforting. If you'd like to see the amazing squares that others designed, have a look at the link above. This is my entry for this week's Mixed Media Monday challenge.
