artifacts

rolled up? the east and west walls from the house with the golden windows.
on the wall? vintage wool blanket, cut and re-stitched by many hands "Perhaps the process itself is the art. What is then created is just the artifact." Mary Babcock

yes literally what is created is man-made, and the process is the journey and always you come to crossroads and make decisions, do this and don't do that...and you might make a series to try out all the possibilties you can imagine and there are infinite possibilities and yet within our time on earth only so much can be done...and as I grow older I realise more and more that the process is the art and the results are markers on the way
Beautiful post Judy

Just went to check what's what on Facebook and found that the magazine Fiber Art Now had learned the link to your One Hundred Quilts blog. Thought you might like to know. Great to see all those quilts in one place. Awesome!
