To sew or not to sew…..

O.K. well, it’s more like, should I sew some more?

I’ve been invited to submit an art peice to FAC MOD, our local Modern Arts Museum for their first annual Holiday show. It’s such an honor to be invited, but I just don’t know if I’ve got the time. The peice has to be submitted by Oct. 30th. Here’s my sketch, if I do it:

O.K., this was a lightning fast concept sketch, now that I look at it, I’m thinking you probably can’t tell anything about what I’m thinking. The top would be silk with batik and stamping in purple, orange, burnt umber to look something like this in print. Then the skirt would be layers of tulle with snippets of other tulle going from darker to lighter up the full skirt. There is also a victorian style drape across the top of the skirt, gathered in the back with huge tulle gathered flowers. Remember, this is an art peice.

My con list is a mile long: not enough time, will have to push back the hunting patterns, don’t have the money to buy the materials needed, too much on my plate right now (Daisy scouts, Arbonne, etc.), and on and on and on.

The pro list is just this: It’s FAC MOD. Really, what kind of nut would pass that up?

    Go For It! A few years ago I entered several pieces in an FGI competition in Denver and won in the career category. Not a big deal but the challenge of the design and execution was good for my creative heart and the validation of winning is a real ego boost.

    Love the sketch!

    Thanks Diane! I’m going to do, just ordered all the dye-na-flo, etc. I’ll post pictures as soon as it’s done.
