this is progress??

I worked at home again today. First of all, I left my keys in the studio yesterday and because my spare key to the outside door of the building doesn't work, I couldn't get in unless one of my studio mates was there to let me in. So this morning, I played around with this thing on the wall. And then tonight, again. Shoulda left it alone -- but on Friday I'll rearrange it for the upteenth time and fortunately, I have the photo. I suppose one advantage of pieces falling off the wall is that sometimes you put them back in better ways than you had put them in the first place. I am overthinking -- and that is the kiss of death. Some of the blocks have fallen down again and I am going to leave it alone for now. Between the ends of the day I had my hair cut so that now I no longer look like an overgrown tree. And I had an MRI of my hand to see what is cooking there. While I was lying there I thought of all kinds of funny, clever things I could write on tonight's blog. Do I need to tell you I can't remember any of them? You've already figured it out for yourself. I have sort of ironed my Urban Storefronts to a backing. I say "sort of" because I didn't have enough Mistyfuse and had to use this horrible wonder under stuff, which doesn't stick to anything. It must be old. Remind me to buy more Mistyfuse!! Tomorrow, I am going into NY to meet Leni Wiener and I am really looking forward to a day out. Have to be out early to catch the bus so I'll leave you till tomorrow.

You've been busy. Laughed at your thoughts about the pieces falling and getting put back in a better way. Serendipity. I like your top photo best of the two. Was an instant choice. Try not to overthink, it's beautiful.

I seem to be falling into that "think of it and then forfet it" syndrome too and I find it so frustrating! I went to town recently to buy gelatin and came home with all kinds of stuff but no gelatin. Aargh! It may be time for some lists.

I think your piece is progressing well.

I absolutely understand how to overthink a piece to death, and how terrible it feels to do that. When you find the solution to that irksome activity, share it with us. I, for one, could use a whole class in it!

I hope the news on your hand is positive. :D

Just a thought on your quilt. Try placing a piece of yellow on it and see if you are happier. Don't know if that will do what you want but my eye (through the computer) wants a spark.
