Uggh. I really need some new stuff. I want to buy some white shorts and a hot pink top. Or a cute little denim skirt and a flirty Bohemian blouse. Something. Anything. As long as it has COLOR --lots and lots of color. I'm sick of wearing jeans and dark sweaters, heavy black leather motorcycle jackets, black leather boots. So today to celebrate Spring - I liberated myself and tucked all my winter stuff away. As for the bikini - a girl can dream can't she!?
Slice Quilt/Fractuired Quilt - Spring has also made an appearance in the downstairs studio by virtue of some "Spring-esque" projects. I dug out the Van Gogh Iris slice quilt. The panels have been sewn together and now I'm trying to decide what to do next. I don't think I want to "box it in," with a traditional border. I've been entertaining the idea of making iris petals and leaves to carry over and "out" of the quilt along the edges. Deconstructed. I've also been free motion quilting some the panels by the other artists - by way of adding the "black" outline to more of the iris flowers and details to leaves. I can see this is going to be a long work in progress - but I must finish it by June 1st as I want to bring it to the June Cyberbee meeting. I'm the last one to finish. Everyone esle finished their quilts and they came out just beautiful.
Here's a tiny peek at a little blackbird I threadpainted for a special friend. I don't want to spoil the surprise as she hasn't received it yet - so I'll show the entire thing at a later date.
How did YOU celebrate Spring this weekend? Did you stay inside and Spring Clean?? Or did you run outside and embrace Mother Nature? Me - after I cleaned out my closet - I got down and dirty. Got all the vegetables in the ground, the sunflowers planted and the corgis bathed.
After a full day spent in the dirt - EVERYBODY needed a bath!
THIS is the face I got when I said the word, "bath!"
