I spent the afternoon in the studio working on something I hadn't planned to do, but I pretty much got the place ready for Saturday's Thermofax workshop. Since I won't be around tomorrow, I had to make a list of things I need to bring on Sat. But I think I left the list there, which is par for the course. Well, I'll remember the coffee and donuts and nothing else is that important.
For the last several days, whenever I have a spare minute, I have been doing mindless sewing - strips. No idea what I will do with these or if I ever will do anything with them, but here, for your entertainment, are a few samples -- only one of which I like. In the meantime, I am quilting Urban Storefront and am almost done with it. Now I have to finish this blue thing on my wall but I keep looking at it and moving things around.When I took a picture of it I could see that my eye went directly to the the blue rectangle in the middle. Bleh.
So I moved it to the upper left and the piece flows better for me. But the blue rectangle is still bothering me . And really, all my attention goes to the upper right which is the strongest part of this piece (and the only section I have sewn together. Surprsingly, it works better for me upside down -- and now I see that I need another arch element in the corner where the blue is. Also, I think this wants to be larger but I don't feel like making it larger. So it will stay there till Sunday or Monday when I might have time to play around with it. But I have to fish or cut bait -- there are too many other things I have in my head and I want to be done with this. An unusual feeling.
Need to get up and out the door before 8: am so I can get to the Upper East Side by 10:00-10:30 and play mommy to my youngest tomorrow. It will be a long day, but one I look forward to.
