Quote collector that i am and post #100

Oscar Wilde often said words i can't forget.

 Words that rang a bell that still can ring. i ran across a new one today 
to add to my growing collection.
if you read my blog you will find some favorite quotes peppered down the right margin. new ones appear, some disappear or are rearranged as a pattern appears. 
Perhaps soon they will need their own blog!

"Mere color, unspoiled by meaning, and unallied with definite form, can speak to the soul in a thousand different ways."
Oscar Wilde
I came across this quote above on a blog i read recently, lo i can't recall which..

there are so many talented and artistic blogs out there just in the fabric
category!
Back in 2007 made the post card below for an exchange with theme of quotes!
Boy Howdy, I'm in I said !!


with a childhood photo, 
fabrics, paints, button, machine free motion,threads and lace,
i brought into being this 4"x 6" postcard 
of what that quote meant to me at that moment and looked like.

  "Be yourself. everyone else is already taken "  O.W. again! WOW!!

I think i respond to certain quotes because of the kernel of truth and often  humor embedded in those few words that i hear.  I often find them to be a jumping off point for my imagination to leap into a project.  or a smile.

do you respond to quotes?
what are your favorites ? 

And as this is post number 100 
 and 
if you are a reader that might like a piece of my hand painted fabric, 
leave a comment  by Feb 28 and
 if Ruby the studio cat helper pulls your name from the basket,


i'll send out a  painted fat quarter of my choice 
or Ruby's as you can see above she is very interested in investigating fabric!. 
How's that for a helper !
have a great weekend !

Hi Sonja, well I am behind in my blogging....just found a new quote that i am working with: "rudeness is a weak man's imitation of courage," eric hoffer
Really rings true for me. Doing it around an antique typewriter stamp

thanks Linda, glad to have your comment and read your post with art and quote. I think they make one think and sometimes it sparks interesting internal commentary! Collage plays well there.
