The Long Week-end

Monday, July 5th, 2010

Since I am retired,  I sometimes lose track of what day it is. This past week-end intensified that. It has been too long. I managed to get some studio work done. I painted more organza and some silk for a background.

I wasn’t sure what to do for a background for this next piece, but I auditioned the painted silk and I quite like it.

I stitched up some more pojagi pockets from the newly painted organza. I used a bit more red.

I also did a little landscape for my sketchbook.

On the home front, we had a nice meal with the family last night. Mia and Miles had some sparkling fun on the deck.

Today, I decided to salvage 6 very ripe apricots and made some jam. I used a recipe with just apricots, sugar and lemon juice. It is a refrigerator jam.

Hot weather is acomin’! It is going to be in the 90s by the end of the week. I plan to do some marathon dyeing and maybe some discharging.
