New Year. New Inspiration.

Happy 2012, everyone!!
It's a new year of sewing, quilting, painting, dolls, felting, embroidery, and all kinds of projects and materials! Some new things I want to try this year are;
marbling- paper and fabric
fabric dying with nature
and learning new felting techniques

I just got the latest issue of Cloth Paper Scissors, and I thought it would be fun to use their 52 Creative prompts! Week 1 is writing down inspiring words and colors, and drawing them out of  a hat. This week's self-challenge is;
Glacier Blue Love!!

I think I can work with that!

I also finished 2 more magnet art dolls. I love this little circus figure. Looks so happy!


My gal ended up looking like a romantic Valentine. And she has some big Dolly Parton hair!


What are you all hoping to do this year?
All the best.

I haven't seen that issue of CPS yet. But is could be fun. Although I don't think I could do it every week. I might have to cut the number of prompts down to 12
