Hello Friends,

Today marks the start of this year’s #100dayproject and so I have a very quick post just to kick off the right way instead of lagging behind as per usual. This year it will run from today, 22nd Feb until 1st June.  I don’t anticipate posting one a day on my blog, I’m thinking more of a weekly catch-up, but I will be attempting to post every day on Instagram since it is primarily an Instagram challenge.

today’s art . . .

Today’s art is this ATC which is number 1/100 for #the100dayproject.  It’s funny how things turn out as I fully intended to do this year’s projects in a book but instead I have opted for ATCs.

So this year I am sticking with ATCs again like the previous two years, and I am using fabric again like last year but I won’t be using Harris Tweed this time, at least I don’t expect to be using it.  I will mostly be using quilting cottons from my collection of neglected fabrics.  The ATCs are made from amazon boxes, the fabric is stitched on, and then I am drawing cats on top and finishing off with a word or two.  Other things might happen along the way, but I wanted something that was small enough to be done every day without too much stress.  I think this is it.

The first one is one of my signature black cats, on a base of this gorgeous acid yellow batik cotton.  I love this fabric, I really need to do something with it apart from store it in a cupboard.  What do you think of it?

Let me know what you think in the comments and as always, thanks for reading!

as mentioned above

I am glad I decided not to do the 100 days project this year because just as soon as it’s completed, I’d have to start my ICADs through July 31.

That is a lovely batik. I love the complimentary colors and I love how batik is usually the same on both sides.
