Fussing and Fusing

Wednesday, February 3rd, 2010

I finished putting all the pieces on the design wall today. I kept standing back and checking  how my eyes moved around the piece and then I would rearrange or change a fabric. I love the colors in this. It makes me happy to work on this during this dreary month of February.

I took a photo and changed it to gray scale to check the values. Looks pretty good.

So, I carefully pulled it off the design wall and placed it on my ironing table and started fusing it. I dropped  my Panasonic iron  too many times and it has died. So, I was only able to tack the pieces with my sealing iron.

Tomorrow, I am heading down to Trinity early in the morning for a nuno felting class. So more fusing will have to wait until tomorrow afternoon.

I am feeling much better today. I had trouble getting out of bed, but I got dressed in leaving the house clothes instead of my sweats. I was talking to my wise daughter on the phone about how punky I was feeling. She reminded me that every one in Portland feels that way in February!! So I got out early and did food shopping for the rest of the week. I took a walk with Scooter and Mr C. And, then, I enjoyed a great afternoon in the studio.
