I Can Do This

I was on the verge of a meltdown tonight.  I have a very full schedule for the next two days. An important Artists Among Us coordinators meeting. I had to put together a slide show from all of those who have expressed an interest. We will be doing the jurying tomorrow. There are documents to go to those who get in that have not been approved, and I am supposed to send an e-mail to those who get in by March 2nd. I am leaving Friday morning for an SDA symposium in Seattle.

I want so much to have undivided time to work on my neighborhood walk piece. I am behind on my timeline for that. I have the elements fused (see above) but no screenprinting has been done.

Add to the mix that I have to pick up M & M from school tomorrow and supervise homework, make dinner and get them to school with lunch on Thursday morning. Oh, and then I have a dental hygienist appointment sometime on Thursday -can’t remember when.

I got the slide show done and printed an excel file of all the entrants before dinner. After dinner, I thought I just want to curl up and watch junk tv. But, I went down to the studio and made a 3 x3, committed to the layout for the Mr C and Scooter piece and lightly fused it. Hung it up on the design wall. Took it down and made some adjustments. The printing and sewing will have to wait until next week.

I worked on some of the documents for AAU and printed out what I have done so far for my partners in crime to look at tomorrow. And…..sighed a sigh of relief. I can do this!!

Here is todays blue 3 x 3:

    Oh my goodness, how gorgeous! Well done. You could stop right here and have a wonderful piece. Can’t imagine how much richer it will be when you add the rest.

  3. Your neighborhood walking piece is just beautiful. I gasped when I saw it. It does not look as if you have to add anything more.

    I’m exhausted just reading you to do list! Glad you didn’t breakdown! I’m loving the softness of your walking piece…

    When you showed the individual print outs I liked them, but didn’t know how they’d be put together. I really like the overlapping of the images, and the color transition – very effective!

    I’m glad you didn’t have to resort to a breakdown! Your walking piece is looking good. From the bits and pieces I couldn’t tell the scale of the trees, but seeing them in place now, they are looking really good. I definitely get the cycle of the seasons and the passage of time in it. 🙂 I look forward to seeing how you stitch it.
