Rescue Me (Part Two)

 When we looked at this on Monday, there was a big fluffy, 5 year old tree on a painted sky background.  It was developing, but it still wasn't the vision I had in mind - too juvenile.

Rescue Me - Part One

and now for something completely different

I'm sitting in a little park across the street from where I work (it's called "Cloud Gardens").  Thinking about where I'd rather be, including making something more substantive to show you here.

But in the meantime, I thought I'd share with you a slice of my life today - and who knows? Maybe someday this will be a part or all of a quilt.

Working on a layout - I kinda like it (black velvet, green silk); but if I keep going in this way, I'm going to end up with a queen sized art quilt. (!)

It's already 49 x 41 inches and I envision another three squares this size...

Sun printing...

I know, I know; you're thinking "that's a sun print?" Okay, I admit, it's an unexpected result, but I went about it in the expected way - just used unusual colours.

I didn't want to use the expected green, so thought if I did black, I might end up with some cool, gray leaf shaped resists.

The Cobbler's Children...

Over the long weekend (it was Canada Day here on Friday) BSP asked me to make some new cat quilts for the babies.

I can't imagine why!
