A Day Off

Wow, the holiday season has hit us with a bang. We have been on the go all week-end — two concerts and doing some holiday decor prep.

I got the organ piece to a point where I could photograph it. I told the committee that it was not completed – I still have some quilting to do. I couldn’t get to sleep on Friday, fretting over the hot mess that I seem to have created. I had an idea that some quilting with silver thread would integrate the silver foil. I feel that it is working. I also realized that because this was not fused, it needed more quilting. I think it is better. At any rate, I am putting it aside for a bit because it was taking over my life. If I could start over, I would. I learned so much doing this.

Anyway, I took the day off. I got dressed for church and stayed in my dressy clothes all day because we had a Bach Christmas concert at Trinity and Wassail after party. It felt good to just take it easy. I went to the local mixed media store, Collage, to see if the Art Quilting Studio magazine was in. It was there. I wanted to toot my horn a bit, but they were really  busy so I just pointed out to the young clerk that I had two articles. She seemed less that interested. Oh, well.

I need to clean up my studio again. My sister says I am always cleaning it up. Yes, this is true  because I create in a mess! I need to put the yellow orange fabrics away and pull out the yellow greens. I am having an Oregon SDA meeting here next week-end and I know the studio will need to be ready for visitors. I also have to start on the 12 X 20 for the sweet theme. I know what I am doing and have it all planned in my head. So that is on my agenda for the week.
