Aspen Progress

Sunday, May 16th, 2010

It took me most of the day to get my act together and get down to the studio. We were runningĀ  out of leftovers so I had to do some grocery shopping and walk the dog and tend to my gardens.

This afternoon, I fused the trees to some off white dupioni silk. Then I recut them with the rotary cutter.

I machine appliqued the trees to the background and did some free motion stitching on them. You can see the photo above.

I really enjoyed having Lisa and Clay here for a few days. Scooter was especially happy to have the extra attention.

Tomorrow, I am seeing an ENT doctor about my chronic sinusitis and the possibility of surgery. Hope to get some relief!
