|You Are Bare Feet|
My contractor has been on my case to put my shoes on, to no avail. Well, he DID warn me. I stepped on a nail the other day - but it didn't do any harm. The floor guy couldn't come yesterday so the electricians finished up. He is here now, putting down the oak floor in the kitchen. I will keep ironing and sorting fabric. Without shoes.
As I have been unearthing fabric pieces, I have come across some I had forgotten about that caught my eye. Here are just a couple. They are sooo different from one another, both in process, materials, and mood.
Do you find the same thing in your work? Pieces that are so different in every way that you couldn't possibly imagine you had made both of them if you didn't know you had?
It's always a surprise: sometimes a pleasant one, and other times, a "what was I thinking?" - which is, of course, an opportunity to go back in. I have a very heavy pile of those.
On another subject, if you participated in the discussion on this blog in 2007 on working in a series, watch your mail for the Spring 2008 SAQA Journal. It is being mailed out soon; the European SAQA members already have it.
Kitchen floor update for the record. It is beautiful, even in it unfinished state. And it smells delicious. Oops - there's the bare foot in the lower right. Glad I had my toes done. I SWEAR I took this picture this morning, before I even knew about this quiz.
I talked to Judy Carpenter a while ago and we're about neck-in-neck with our kitchen progress. Her electricians were there yesterday. too. But at least she escaped to do some printing, which is more than I can say. More tomorrow.
