Before I rushed off to NC then TN I did a little work on the quilt. Having finished the squares I laid them out on the floor in the living room. (The studio floor being very dusty yet....but more on that later)
The color is not good....but the idea is emerging. The gray spaces are actually my carpet of soft teal green. They will be filled in with felt of green with leaves both nuno and stitched.
The glare is from the skylight shinning and try as I might I couldn't get a complete picture without it. I've trimmed off the curly bits of the sides (thinking Jude Hill weaving with silk strips I've saved them all) and re arranged the composition again.
It is now pinned and ready to baste. Whew...I have my first Friday off today (I decreased the time at my Day Job to Mon thru Thur....life is short don't you know!) but have several irons in the fire. Not the least is the Studio. The floor has been covered again with plywood to make it more rigid, sanded and now has it's primer coat of paint. DH has been working steadily to move it forward. We hope to get the waterproof flooring down this long weekend. Wish me luck. And enjoy your 4th of July if you celebrate.
