You may have noticed my absence from the blog. I've been away in Saint John, NB for SAQA (Studio Art Quilt Associates) retreat. It was a jam packed weekend with good food, (yeah, no cooking!) where I met lots of fiber artists form the Atlantic region. Each person's work was unique and awe inspiring.
I also stayed at my son's and his fiance's for a couple of nights, having a little visit with my grand puppies.
Bosco, the grey Aussie-doodle, just had his first birthday.
They sure are great company for each other.
I came home on Monday night exhausted and I've slowly been recuperating. This morning I made it to my weekly yoga class only because my friend was picking me up. I wasn't my usual self, but I've been taking it easy for the rest of the day. It is beautiful out, but I haven't gone out other than to hang a line of clothes.
I've been anxious to get back to work on my latest art piece. Yesterday, I unpacked, washed clothes, cooked and organized my sewing studio.
Today, I could get back to work.Although it doesn't look like I did much, I've been fusing, cutting and arranging bits for 2 hours. My back was complaining and I needed to stop for a snack break.
I pulled up all the large pieces, laid them back exactly where I want them, and started cutting the little bits of colors for the ripples and dark spots. I'm hoping another day will do it and I'll be ready for the stitching.
