Creative Outlets

I'm still busy with the free-motion quilting on the panel quilt. I've got four panels just about completed.

Meanwhile, I'm finding that I need other creative outlets from the quilting. I have many other things I like to do, such as painting and dyeing. Both of which I have been sneaking in lately.

Last evening I painted this kitty.


Here he is checking out the flowers on my deck.

And here is some dyeing I started. Ahhhhh, lovely turquoise. This is a five-step gradation. They are soaking in water here.


How about you? Do you have more than one creative outlet?

  5. LOVE the kitty painting.

    I too have to have other creative outlets...and actually I find the diversity of other art dabbles enhances my creativity and helps stave off those dreaded creative ruts....most of the time:)

  6. Great kitty and wonderful dye colors!

    I find that I need four projects going at one time, each one at a different stage in the process. So I'm planning quilt #1, sewing quilt #2, quilting quilt #3, and finishing quilt #4. I keep wondering if life would be simpler if I just worked on one thing at a time . . .
