Finally, today, I was forced into doing something creative. I've been working on this little piece all afternoon, and amazingly, it has come together. All done but the edges. Hooray! I have had these units sitting around for four or five years and have had them on-and-off the wall a dozen times. I was trying to make a bigger piece that did not want to be bigger than 8-½" x 11". Ha! Done. The orientation will be up to the future owner.
Has this encouraged me or motivated me to do more small pieces? Hmmm...maybe. It's a start, anyway.
The NJ weather has been depressing. If this were February, it would be a heat wave; if it were October, it would be lovely and mild. But it's damn near June and it has been windy, in the low 60's, and cloudy/drizzly. BLEH! Memorial day is forecast to be more of same, which is a bummer because our condo's pool opens this weekend. (Not that I EVER go in the water, but it would be nice to sit in the nice weather and read or schmooze). Sigh...I won't even begin to tell you about the pollen "tsunami" that the papers are writing about. I have not stopped sneezing and I wish I could blame it on fabric dust.
So now you know my whole story. Now, I have to go clean up the mess I made while I worked on the above piece. Aren't you glad you tuned in?
