Working Left Handed

Saturday, April 17th, 2010

This photo shows the ingredients for my next Twelve X Twelve quilt, a color palette based on the Kilauea Volcano. I have my right arm in a sling most of the time to prevent further injury to my shoulder. I am finding it rather challenging to get things done. I drew my design on freezer paper and marked it up and cut it apart. I started cutting the different elements which will be fused and need an under-lap. I forgot to add the under-lap on pieces 3 and 4 so I quit and left it looking like this. I was too tired.

This is the Trinity Art’s display case where we promote upcoming or ongoing shows. Since I am the featured artist in our exhibit and sale next month, I had to come up with something. I created a mini-gallery of some of my small scrap, inspiration pieces.

I love how this worked out. I need to make some more of these little treasures!! I also hung my last Twelve X Twelve quilt on a little quilt block stand that I bought at a quilt show many years ago.

So, it was not a totally wasted day, but I am tired so Mr C is taking me out to dinner. The caveat is that I have to select the place.

Here is the silly dog of the house, posing for the new camera.

Hope you are having a great week-end.
