Got in my studio today but don’t say hurrah for me just yet. Spent most of the day doing paperwork that had been neglected for the last few weeks. I am all caught up now, but just with the paperwork mind you….not with the computer work, so a small hurrah would be appropriate (smile).
In the next few days I will also have to get to work on updating my website and………reveal my little secret thing I’ve been working on. Stay tuned for that.
I painted the whole piece but because I painted a few layers over one section it didn’t take to being machine quilted well. I would have to say it protested strongly and must have thought it looked quite good just painted.
Here is the traitor and I’ve made sure to point out the culprit in the pic above. I was quilting it to resemble a gust of wind (you know…the AIR element silly) coming in from one direction. You can see the first swirl I created. They’re some big a _ _ needle holes aren’t they?
Thing is I really liked this piece too. This would have been my first juried competition too (pouting lips here).
Oh well………on to other things.
See ya next time “In the Hayloft”,
