365 Somethings #13-20 + bonus

“I'm going to enjoy every second, and I'm going to know I'm enjoying it while I'm enjoying it. Most people don't live; they just race. They are trying to reach some goal far away on the horizon, and in the heat of the going they get so breathless and panting that they lose sight of the beautiful, tranquil country they are passing through; and then the first thing they know, they are old and worn out, and it doesn't make any difference whether they've reached the goal or not.”
Jean Webster

As you know, Hanna and I are creating 365 somethings this year. That is the goal, but it doesn't have to be one something per day. I'm focusing on 7 somethings each week. My somethings are stitched collages on index card dividers. Do you like the stitching? I'm going to post all of these at flickr. 

 I am loving the process, I love that each card is completely different, and I love that I can do a few at a time when I am at the sewing machine. I am taking the time to immerse myself in the hum of the sewing machine, in selecting papers and colors and shapes and building collages. 

Hanna is creating collages. They are beautiful, have you seen them? Here's Hanna's Week 2. Here's Hanna's intro to 365 somethings

There's a Flickr group for 365 Somethings and you can find my Somethings in my 365 Somethings Flickr set. Or read about Somethings #1-12.

I'm teaching at 21 Secrets Art Journal Workshop!

Love them. So simple yet really pretty. I think I need to cut smaller pieces of my collage material and place less focus on the big image. It might make piecing them easier.

I love these :) Every time I see them, I love the stitching and the colours and the few words on them all. Sometimes I come back just to be inspired by them. I think I've decided: I'm going to get involved. 20 days in, never too late! My 365 somethings: tags and train tickets. I'm 16 in so far, I'll catch up and carry on! Thanks for the inspiration, as always! x

These are fantastic Tammy. Love seeing all the materials you use and the beautiful combinations they make. I got behind again this week but hopefully today can blast through a bunch.

Love these, they are so beautiful & colorful! Yummy!

Wow, Tammy, I love these. When I looked at Hanna's collages, I enjoyed them but also find it impossible to do paper collage. And then I followed her link to your blog and knew fabric collage is something I can do and have done, on a small scale. The next time I sit at the sewing machine, I just might get some index cards, or other card stock, and create a few collages,

BTW, if you visit my blog, I'm participating in a Grow Your Blog Party and am having a great giveaway. You'll also get to see my latest creation.

Keep up the great artwork.
