“It is the function of art to renew our perception. What we are familiar with we cease to see. The writer shakes up the familiar scene, and, as if by magic, we see a new meaning in it.” – Anais Nin

Sews Magic – Giveaway

Summer is in full swing and I am stitching like mad for an upcoming show, but I want to celebrate the magic of 2017 so far. With help of the generous people at Stampington I’m hosting a giveaway. Two lucky readers will win either a copy of Art Quilting Studio or Sew Somerset and some goodies from me. Any comments on the blog in the next 7 days has a chance of winning.

I love creating with fabric, paper and thread, but I find inspiration in words too and have always collected quotes. I’ll be posting art quilts and quotes about magic for the next 7 days. I hadn’t realized just how often magic is included in a sentiment on a quilt until I went looking for them. I shouldn’t be surprised given that “believemagic” is a daily part of my life, but when I found 7 pieces I hadn’t yet shared here, I was smiling.

So let’s kick things off with a little Roald Dahl – his stories are magical.

“And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.” – Roald Dahl
