I spent quite a bit of time just cleaning up in the studio this morning -- while listening to Car Talk. Now I'm ready to begin work on the third of the Lark projects. It's going to be a largish *pieced* wall hanging. Can you believe I'm abondoning my fusible for the moment?
Here is an in-progress shot of another of the projects. You'll recognize this as Encrusted Cobblestones. (Actually, I called it Encrusted Pathways when I posted about it earlier. That was wrong. I forgot my own title. Duh.)
Because Lark requires several inprogress shots, I had to remake the quilt. That's ok. I liked it even more the second time around.
As far as the triptych landscape... it's done. And I am not happy with it. It's fine, but not my best work. As I was talking with my best friend, Lucy, I said, "Well, I suppose I have time to just start over." Ding! Of course, I must start over. Now I'm excited about doing it again and making some needed improvements. Sometimes you need a test piece.
I also took some time to do something totally new and fresh. And it's looking great. Lots of handstitching that I did while watching Deja Vu last night. Hmmm. A freaky movie -- in the most excellent sense of the word freaky.
(Didn't DebR recently post a list of books and/or movies involving time travel? Add Deja Vu to the list!)
Yes yes. Pictures of the completed Encrusted Cobblestones II, the triptych and the new, fresh piece coming soon.
