This blog is a window seat peek into the things that bring me joy. I desire to encourage, educate and edify all those who stop by.
Ain't I a Woman
Pearl of Great Price
BIG, big, BiG...did I say big...
Certain members of my family , me included, have been known to have large heads. My surrogate brother even affectionately calls me "big head." So when I made this fabric muse she ended up with a big head just like me (LOL). Another project taught in Barb Owens "Mining Your Muse" class. This is my version of the 'Artsy Fartsy' Muse that she demonstrated in class last week.
This noodle spiral is twice the size of what the instructor made. (LOL)
I used burlap for her wild and crazy hair
This was my first time doing free motion stitching. Sentiment: Blessed are the meek, for they shall inherit the earth. Matthew 5:5
The entire muse is made from scraps(except for the felt). I used a tape measure strap that broke off a bag for her arms. I mean she is supposed to be artsy fartsy (LOL)
Here is a close up of her colored staple fingers.
So, there you go! I am BIG and so is she...ha ha ha The scripture on her bib reminds me to let my gentle side show sometimes.
I love her, this was a fun project to make. I am so enjoying the class.
My name is Tina. I am a teacher, writer, dramatist, storyteller and crafter. Although, I studied computer science in college, I soon discovered that I was better at being creative than I was at being technical.
In 1997 I started the PARABLES Drama Ministry. Through the PARABLES I have been able to share the gospel of Jesus Christ through dramatic expression. I have had the opportunity to perform and direct in many venues; including street theater.
I like to cook, craft, sew and make jewelry. Hence, God is prompting me to include these interests as He is birthing PARABLES Productions and Events; an education company where we teach by using dramatic expression, stories and interactive instruction. Teaching creative subjects allows me to show others how to collaborate, communicate, create and exude confidence. In addition to theater related activities; there is now a venue to teach creative subjects like sewing, cooking and crafting. I host events where I simply teach lessons and skills that I have learned over the years; hence these events are called "Pass-it-on Parties." Now that's passion turned profession!
