Art speak

Talking with friends about all our UFO's and one lady mentioned her goal of finishing one UFO a month for 2007.

This led to what we call our UFO's to make them sound a little less unfinished.
PhDs - projects half done
WISPS - works in slow progress
SINS - stuff I'll never stitch

Then my friend Ann pointed out that she attends workshops purely for the technique, and said she was "process orientated instead of product orientated"
This is the lady who introduced me to the phrase "figurative fibre artist"

So now I'm a "process orientated figurative fibre artist"

It sounds so much better on the resume instead of "a dollmaker who never finishes anything"

I love hanging with people who can do art speak.
