Next steps

Back to working on the tree today. I am feeling better, but my ears, while they no longer hurt, are almost totally blocked. I am practically deaf to all sound outside my head. Everything going on inside my head is amplified alarmingly. My pulse thumps continuously. Chewing is raucous. When I brushed my teeth this morning, my electric toothbrush sounded like a helicopter was landing on the roof. Most annoying. I am feeling very unsocial, so an afternoon in the studio was a good thing.

Fabrics are painted and fused. For those who asked, you can now see how the green line fits in. Now I have this idea to add pattern and texture with the quilting, almost like drawing all over it. I did some doodling on some scraps to see how I like it. I'm not sure, but I think I am going to try it. Once I get started I'll have a better idea of how it will work, I think.

Regarding yesterday's post—you guys are hilarious! I loved reading everyone else's favorite grammar and spelling peeves. You hit on a lot of the same ones that make me cringe. One of my favorite un-favorites is "Wallah!" (intending to say "Voila!") Makes me roll my eyes every time I see it.


  1. Fabulous. You may want to look at some of Melody Johnson's recent work. She adds lovely textures with quilting. Great motifs for inspiration. Love the green line.

  2. I am curious to know what type of paint you used to paint the fabric. Even with the painted fabric the piece still looks like your work. Can't wait to see the quilting.

  3. I can feel with you about the blocked ears. Hope it will be gone soon! What about Japanese mint oil?

  4. Love your painted tree. I also love to paint on fabric.
