In the Studio…Art In Progress

In the Studio, art has been “in progress” and the top is complete for “Field at Toledo” (Spain)!

The next step is to lay the top flat on the cutting table and spot glue any places needed to secure all the pieces. Then I will layer with a thin, cotton batting, plus a backing fabric, before any stitching and quilting is begun…

I like to choose a fabric for the back of the piece, which compliments the overall design. After all of the stitching is complete, many times the back results in an unexpected, spontaneous design of its own! Always fun to see what develops…

In the Studio~~Summertime!

Aaah, Summertime! Maybe it’s because I was born in June, or maybe it’s because I grew up mainly in the South…But I feel more like myself when the sun is shining very warmly,

The breezes are gently blowing through the leaves,

“lightening bugs” flash across the green grass at dusk,

and Nothing tastes better than a large glass of sweet iced tea!!  🙂 

I spend lots of time reading and working on the front porch,

and only occasionally nap in the hammock!…

I’m thinking up new Ideas!
