I've had a lovely extra-long weekend, despite the weather. I managed to get most of the grocery shopping done Friday morning, braving the storm that left our back patio looking like this when I woke up:
By afternoon, our street looked like this--
It snowed fairly steadily all day Friday and most of Saturday; we finally got a break Sunday, then today was sunny and cold.
All that white stuff made it the perfect weekend to spend time in the studio. I got my second small Walk in the Woods piece quilted, embroidered (machine and hand), and bound. I am really happy with how it turned out! I learned a number of lessons- or, better yet, had some things that I'd 'known' before from all my reading reinforced with this 'doing.'
While working on the last bits of embroidery, I started thinking about the next Tangled Textiles piece, due in January. The theme is 'Blue'- a word that I chose because it can be interpreted as a simple color study, or by referencing one of the many expressions or meanings the word has. I'm leaning towards one of the expressions, but who knows, that could change. As I sorted my embroidery floss after finishing Walk in the Woods 2, what color am I most lacking in?
The color is lousy in the photo, and I can't seem to get it right with PSE- but it was pretty obvious to me that I need lots more blues in this stash!
