For the month of October, I have chosen to participate in a CreativeSprint by Noah and Mica Scalin. They give us a daily prompt, we throw something arty together. The idea is to forget about perfection and making a masterpiece and just be creative. Play with your food, with your leftovers; if you’re outside, play with the river, sticks and stones and leaves. Do something without judging. If you want to play, head on over and sign up. Then you can see what others do on the facebook page, their blogs or social media. I started one of these sprints a couple years ago and didn’t follow through. I’m following through this time because I need the censor who tells me that I’m not a artist and all those other degrading message to shut up. There is no contest here, just fun. And who knows, something cool may happen along the way.

Day 1: Make something that fits in the palm of your hand using materials readily available to you. Since I’m quilting, I had a little scrap of a quilt sandwich and the corners I cut off my Ugly Snugglies.

The corners reminded me of birds so I sewed them in a vee-formation to make “Migration,” a tiny art quilt.

Then I rolled up another scrap and sewed on a bump for “Bump on a Log.”

Can’t wait to see what the prompt is for Day 2. I’ll let you know!
