Day 11


I managed to get to my studio today after a bit of angst over not finding a parking spot. I get so irritated over the parking situation. The lot is for renters only and we have stickers to show we are valid. There are always cars there with no sticker. So, this morning I left and did some grocery shopping and came home in a snit. Mr C drove me back so I could work for a while then came back and picked me up.

This is a piece that I am doing to show the use of lost edges. It is taking me forever to cut little leaves for this row of trees. I think I am ready to start quilting. I want to quilt the leaves and the background before I add the trunks.

I am also making progress on this little sweater.


It has been so dark and dreary and rainy today. I am having a SADD episode due to lack of light. I think we are due for some sun over the next few days and I am looking forward to it.

    Gerrie, I would have been in a snit too … is there no way to ticket the cars who park there illegally? I’m sorry for your SAAD, but I can relate … luckily, we usually have more than enough sun here in San Antonio. If it makes you feel any better, I’m loving your “lost edges” tree beginnings … and also your sweet little sweater!

    I loved “came home in a snit”! It’s such a good word that I haven’t used in tears but I’m going to put it back into my vocabulary. It makes me laugh because you just know exactly what it means and I’m grinning writing about it! I hope you get sun soon.
