Studio Friday: Creativity Roots

This week's topic for Friday August 4th suggested by Anke: YOUR CREATIVITY ROOTS!

"I just thought about that the other day, that I have my creativity from both sides of my parents. Both my grandma's are/were inspired and creative. Does it run in your family too? And from who did you have it or better who else in your family was/is creative. Mom/dad/Grandma/grandpa/uncle/aunt/......-"

This Log Cabin quilt was made by my mother, Arlene, several years ago, and hangs in my hallway. My home and life are filled with my parents' creations.....quilts to look at and wrap up in, beautiful gifts from my mother's hands. And pieces of furniture made by my dad......a sewing table, bookcases, a doll's wardrobe and little girl's dish cabinet.

I am grateful that I inherited the desire and ability to create, and for seeing it in my daughters' lives as well. {SF}
