Looking Forward

I am very much looking forward to being a part of Jude's Spirit Cloth Workshop next week. We will be talking about creating personal story cloth. It has me doodling on fabric and thinking about telling a story. I am also just so excited to be in a learning opportunity like this - to be in a continuing education situation again - in conversation with people excited about similar things - in creating.


  1. I'm looking forward to it too. That's a beautiful drawing.

  2. susan, your drawings are so
    very very good and will become
    such beautiful cloths...i am
    excited for is a perfect
    experience for a young mom. You,
    i am almost totally positive, will
    find the atmosphere of the group of women both energizing and
    challenging. am so happy for you,
    for me, for all of us.
    i am also hoping to find a way to
    incorporate drawings into the cloth.
    would be the ultimate for me. so
    we can encourage each other/learn
    from each other.

  3. also, when you doodle on fabric,
    WHAT fabric do you use?

  4. Kaye and Grace - thank you so much for your kind comments!

    Grace - I am SO excited too. It has been so fun to watch all of the projects from the cloth to cloth class pop up on everyone's blogs and get a sense of how many people are connected by this.

    Your projects have inspired me to make a curtain for my home - I will show it at some point. I love the way you live with your creations.

    As for my doodling - the fabric is usually just cotton. I recently tried Jude's suggestion of the Pit Pens - could only find black brush pen locally - loved it and just ordered more colors tonight.

    I am really looking forward to learning more about you and the group. Thanks for all of your thoughtful comments.

  5. Lovely drawings and stitchings.

  6. i look forward to all the wonderful stories we will be sharing, your drawing is wonderful.... it is great to have that as an added skill....

  7. Love this sketch of yours! It evokes such wonderful stories in my mind!
