That’s one of my studio windows on the far right.
It’s almost like walking through tunnels. Please no more snow for a while! To add insult, I had a cortisone shot 2 days ago to my wrist without improvement and I have a sore swollen foot which I will see about tomorrow, so no snow shoeing right now.
Just before lunch, I did a short workout downstairs - rowing and a few exercises and then I showered.
I try to spend a couple hours in my studio in the afternoon. Today, I fiddled with the 2nd seedpod piece that I started, placing the silk ribbon stalks and ironing it all in place.
It measures about 14” by 25”. Maybe I’ll add small borders.
Then I sat down and free motion quilted this little 6” by 8” piece, A Chickadee along the Snowshoe trail, that will be a donation to the SAQA Spotlight auction.
The chickadee was thread painted on another piece of fabric backed with stabilizer, cut out and fused to the hand dyed background. The hand embellished branches are almost finished and I will add a few ‘frosty’ beads.
I’ve also pinned up a 2nd slightly larger piece with another chickadee. Somewhere I have a picture where the chickadee was coming into land on my hand for a sunflower seed. Maybe I’ll add the hand.
Now, I’m taking my tea and heading to the sofa for a short rest before I get dinner which I started at lunch time by cutting up veggies for a vegetarian sort of pad Thai. I’ll have brown rice instead of noodles. My energy often peters out by this time of day so I either like to have supper made or started earlier.
I hope your staying warm, or cool, depending on the need and having a bit of creative fun. Cherish the moments.
