Not Much Down Time

Thursday, March 3rd, 2011

It has been another busy day. We are refinancing our mortgage and there was a ton of paperwork involved today. I had to scan documents and get them e-mailed to the lender.

We had the Back to Nature show opening tonight. It was well attended and the show really looks beautiful. Some people gasped when they walked into the hall. You can see photos on our blog – click here.

I did manage to get some work done on the bridge piece. I did some remedial quilting and trimming of threads. I also measured at least twice and then trimmed the edges to size. I did so much quilting on it that it shrunk more than I expected. I think I am going to do the zigzag/satin edging on it or maybe facings. That decision comes tomorrow as well as fusing the bridges and stitching them.

On Saturday, I am taking an encaustic class at Trinity. I am so excited. It is taught by Serena Barton, who teaches for Art & Soul. So, if I don’t check in tomorrow, I hope to have something great to show you on Saturday.
