I am glad, on days like today, that I decided to have a ceiling fan put into the studio. The only problem is that in the mornings the sun shines through the skylights above the fan and the rotating fan causes a strobe-like effect. You can see it on the white walls. Very annoying. I keep thinking I am going to have a seizure! By afternoon the sun has moved and the flickering stops.
Here is an in-progress peek at the big piece I am working on. Yes, those triangle blocks will be pieced.
Two new little beady pieces. The top one has a couple of dangling threads with beads at the ends.
For these little pieces, I prepare the backgrounds in the studio, using mostly ends and scraps of fabrics, with a piece of batting on the back. Then I take them to the house to work on in the evening. Here are three little backgrounds made today.
I don't yet know what will go on them. I will try out combinations of beads and threads and see what I come up with. I have a plastic box that I have outfitted with a variety of beads and threads and other supplies that I am keeping in the house to work on these. I enjoy having some handwork and these have been a lot more fun than sewing bindings and sleeves on quilts.
