In a Blue Mood

Well, not really, but I am working with blue fabrics this month.  March will be yellow. Feb 1 is a felted piece.

Today’s 3 X3 just had to have some indigo.

I spent a good deal of time yesterday morning reorganizing the fabric in my studio — putting away the red stash, pulling some blues, folding and sorting my hand-dyes. It was good to take an accounting of what I have.

Then, I started in earnest working on the next Twelve by Twelve which is really Twelve by Twenty! I cut a piece of batting and was able to figure out how to put it together. I am making fused blocks of different sizes. I have two more small one before I can get every thing fused to the batting and start quilting.

This morning, I went to the airport to pick up Lisa who is here to hang a show with another artist friend. The opening is tomorrow night.  I made a delicious lentil/sweet potato stew for supper tonight — vegan, of course.

Lisa has lots of work to do so we are both going to be down in my studio and office working tomorrow, There will be one diversion — someone who does a style blog here in Portland is coming by to photograph Lisa for her blog. That should be fun.

    Wow, the blue is such a shock after the red! These first three months of primary colors will really pull you in different directions — in a good way, of course! Enjoy your time with Lisa. I’m so proud of her accomplishments.

    What fun you and Lisa will be having!
    Love those blues……but of course the reds were faves!
    Please tell Lisa that her bird (from years & years ago) is a big hit with little Charlie! He is always pointing to it (it perches on my desk) and saying his version of ‘birdy’ and ‘tweet tweet’! Does she still make the birds…….I tend to doubt it, so I think mine is rather valuable!

    Is there a recipe for the vegan stew? I’m not a blue person but what you have done in just a couple of days, has me looking at blue differently. I’m a red person so was enthralled by your pieces in January

    Beautiful blues. Both are different from each other, but both are striking. Give Lisa a big hug. I hope her show is a huge success.
