If I'm dieting, is it still Friday?

Not in the traditional sense, obviously. 

No Food = No Fun.  

I realize that these are the types of views that have led to the tightness of my summer wardrobe, but I can't help but be a little sad that there's no one taking me out to dinner tonight . . .

But aren't there other ways we can make Friday fun?

Sure . . . I'm thinking . . . I know!

If you're looking for something to do, 
why not check out TAFA, The Textile and Fiber Art List. 

There's plenty to keep you busy there all weekend long.  You can search artists by name, by type of work, by geographic location.  There's plenty of great eye-candy and kindred spirits to boot, no matter what path your stitching takes!  Do yourself a favor and check it out.  It might help you stop thinking about Five Guys with their delicious burgers and fries. (Or was I the only one thinking about those?)

While we're at it, I think we should engage in 
some Friday Rerun Fun.

So here's a tasty Itty Blog Bit for you from last summer, on a topic that's always timely.

Enjoy . . . and Happy Weekend! 

Here at Small Works, 
we're bringing the biggest ideas down
to a more manageable size.

And the question to consider today is:

What is Art?

It's a big concept, but it's no match
for my handy dandy

which explains it like this:

See? Perfectly simple.

It's just so easy to over-think these things.

F minus, Tony Carrillo

So in case you've been wondering whether that project you're slogging away on is ever going to be considered "Art," I think we've found the answer.

Once and for all.

Any other questions while I have the book out?

No questions!!!!

My youngest one had the following answer to the question: What is fantasy? Fantasy is like some ears on a spinning wheel.

If you are in need of some textile inspiration you can stop by at this address:

Enjoy yourself and have a lovely weekend.

Does it have to be beautiful? Of course, since it's in the eye of the beholder, I suppose so...

Thanks for the TAFA link -- I know where I'll be this weekend after the art fair.

Awww... What a nice description of TAFA! Thanks for plugging it!

And, the other thoughts were great, too. The IRS defines you by what you make the most money at, so many artists would then be waitresses, secretaries, etc... But, really, to me, it's having that muse, that itch that you just have to scratch, the thing that forces you to play with an idea and bring it forward, whatever the medium.

I absolutely LOVE your work! Keep scratching your itch!
