some down time

When I haven't posted in a few days, you can assume I've had some appointments and perhaps some low time, health wise. This past few days it's been a bit of both. Keeping adrenals, thyroid and blood sugars all balanced is  not easy, and to complicate it my stomach and my bowels are not working as they should. I'm taking several medications for that as well, none of which seem to be working. I'm sorry to bore you with the details here; if I had the energy I'd write a second blog chronicling my ills, as it would be helpful to have a network. For now thanks for bearing with me.
I went to our guild's UFO day yesterday for a couple of hours and got quite a bit of the free motion quilting done on this piece. I did all of the foregrounds with mossy green, so next I will do the sky areas with a pinkish color. Then it will be ready for the hand embellishing which I will work on all summer, hopefully finishing in time for the fall show in Saint John.

I've been keeping my goal to do a zentangle every day or two. Here is the latest. I would like to pick some elements that I like in the  end and translate them into an fiber art piece.

The other thing I worked on today besides baking muffins and resting is this little sandcastle. I started with an acrylic paint mono print which I did a couple of weeks ago and I've added pastel. Next, i will spray fix it and apply it to a board. If all works out as planned, I will add some collaged paper boats. This is for a collaborative project that I'm doing with my sister.

I'm glad you made it out to the guild UFO day in spite of your health problems. I like your zentangle.
