more studio time

Yesterday saw me in the studio again. Today I was home taking care of various chores, including putting labels on a box full of scarves that I will take with me when I lecture and teach at Empire Quilters over the weekend.

 this one amuses me.

Some are crepe de chine; others are chiffon and a little narrower than the crepe, but much longer - around 90".  Yummy.  I have scarves left in the studio that I won't have a chance to dye till next week.

I finished sewing down the facing on this piece, last night. At the moment, it is known as photo-73. No name.  It is 17"h x 14" w (give or take).

I also started stitching a piece I made for the book, which remains one of my favorites.  It is approx. 12"x 12". I suppose it will be finished next week., since tomorrow I will be in NY all day and ditto for Saturday and Sunday.
I was going to finish it tonight, but I am going to bed, instead.  A no-brainer.

Hi Rayna,
It seems to be about windows to me...and perhaps vistas?

I love the piece numbered 73. It reminds me of a building with the lights glowing through the windows.

a series all named by the number our cameras assign the photos for those collage studies with scraps is what came to my mind...have fun in NYC!

Going to bed to get 'a good night's rest' sound GREAT to me!

Rayna, I finally purchased a copy of your book, and started reading yesterday. I just love your process. Thanks!
