This picture pretty much sums up my life! I've also come to the conclusion that Normal is really only a setting on my dryer and I'd probably get pretty bored with only folding towels.
So where was I before I added hospital visits to the daily routine?
My thread testing is still top of the list. I got some stabilizers and fusibles to try. I also got a great number fabric. I'm counting the days for a lot of things.
I'm very intrigued by the new chalk paint that has become available. I ordered some and I'm anxious to give that a try.
First up will be the wood work on the 2 chairs and foot stool we nabbed at an auction sale.
I'm deciding fabric and have rejected the teal/aqua fabrics as that will make the front room too complimentary ( red/green) and I'm happier with an analogous colour scheme of red/yellow. I will be toning them down to gold and cranberry with some aqua accents.
I picked up a Quilting Arts magazine on my travels and the article on digital monoprints by Margaret Applin reminded me of my Photoshop program. I'm needing a graphic to 'make mine' and I'm considering the style of leaf depicted in crewel patterns. This little embroidery book was an early find when I began to do applique. I luv the Jacobean style.
Lastly, I'm considering offering my playroom for informal craft sessions to a young gal. We are thinking beads so I am long on beads, tools and ideas but short on a good basic beading book. If anyone has any suggestions I'd be most grateful.
So the dryer is set,
