The Studio continues to be in disarray. Or not. I guess it depends upon one's point of view. I've been gradually sorting through things, bringing them back into the Studio. If I can't find a place for it, back it goes into The Annex. I'll make a decision later.
But I've made enough progress that I've been able to sew a bit. Last week (or was it the week before?) I made a little 6" quilt. But I'm getting ahead of my story.
Months ago, I bought a quilt, from New Zealand quilter Lisa Call. It was one of 100 6" quilts that she made in 100 days. I can't find a picture of the installation, but here are the quilts, as offered for sale. I bought "Stillness." I love it. It is mounted on stretched canvas, which has been painted black.
Last week, I finished my first and second 6" pieces. I've yet to mount them on canvas. I bought the canvas, I just can't seem to remember where I put the bag containing it. yep. It's been one of those weeks.
Here are Study in Green #1, and Study in Green #2:
I thought it would be boring if I continued to make green pieces...then again, that could be the title of the series: Greenpiece. hahaha. I crack myself up.
Anyway, I remembered stashes here and there, of leftovers from this project and that project. I dug through a bin, and found pieces from Lesson#3, Abstract Still Life, from the Katie Pasquini Masopust class that I took last year. I quickly pieced them together, appliqued leftover seaweed, and began embellishing. It took a while, to remember where I'd stashed my fish buttons, but eventually I was successful in unearthing them.
And I've been busy outside, as well. My old patio chairs have been sandblasted and powder coated, and look amazing.
Down with entropy!
Up with organization!
Goals are good!
