I have been continuing in my quest to get unfinished work off of the old piles and in to the finished piles....which are all on top of an extra bed...so many that if I need something on the bottom it is quite hard to get out!
But anyway, enough of my woes! This is a fused piece that I did several years ago and I had wonky edges on it (on purpose). The edges curved but it never hung flat because I did not plan the curves correctly. So I cleaned it all up, cut off portions, and refaced it which I like much better.
Yesterday I spent several hours creating sleeves for three other pieces that I have previously shown on this blog. It is really nice to get these things done.
Now, all that needs to happen on these is to put labels on them. I have even been putting them into my catalog! Will wonders never cease. Oh, I do hate all the details that have to be done for the business end.
Tomorrow, Wednesday, is a reception for a new show opening called Fabric Art/Art Quilts Plus, at the Cinema Place Gallery at 1061 B St. Hayward, CA. There are quite a few pieces of work in this show and I have two of my new pieces in it. The reception is from 5-7pm and the show runs until November 12 if you are in the area. There are many northern California members of SAQA in the show. Lots of great work!
So, I have sandwiched the Grand Canyon/Colorado River piece and am about ready to draw in some basic shapes. I have spent a lot of time studying the topo map of the Grand Canyon and have decided on a portion to work with which I think has very interesting shapes. I am impressed with myself that I have been patient, have quilted three quilts created by women at the Federal Correctional Facility in Dublin, CA, have been working on a piece for the altar at church, and have worked with a small group of teens at church to create a new stole for our new assistant priest who is heading up the family ministries. Just have to finish each of the those for church and then can get them in to be used.
Next week a small group of us are going to Asilomar for the week of free time with the sewing machines. I am trying to figure out just what I want to do with this time....hmmmmmm...what shall I do with four full days away from home? Well, you will just have to wait and see.
