"Every day is a gift"


My love affair with fabric continues. I worked through the night on some new designs, while telling myself I had to go to bed, but somehow I couldn't tear myself away; I have to finish something before I can stop. It takes a lot of discipline for me to leave something unfinished for another time. I finally did go to bed, around 3.30 a.m., only to be woken by some drilling going on somewhere in the building.
Today I have a full plate. I proofread a weekly magazine, then onto the medical publication to start work on a new issue. Then back to the studio.

  1. It's beautiful Colette. Worth staying up for, I'd say. I was drawing a woman onto a wine bottle at 3am. I had gone to bed but got back up.

    Sounds like a full plate for sure but a good one.

    I cannot find an email addy for you anywhere, I wanted to offer to you something. I also have a love affair with fabric and would love to share pieces of any new wonders I come across. If you're interested you can email me through my blog.

  3. I did that last week - was up writing until 3:30. Sometimes art takes precedence over everything else! Your design here is absolutely gorgeous!
