Finished the Still Life's
After being away for 10 days and not getting much hand work done, I came home and fully focused on finishing the 2 Still Life's that I need for a show. Deadline for finishing is this weekend. I made it!! .... well... I still have to put labels on but that doesn't count. I even got to put a few beads on them. They have more hand stitching than I am used to and I still do not find it relaxing. The quilting went a bit more smoothly than usual. I am really finding that I enjoy working with black and white fabrics. They pose challenges that my normal colors do not. And of course I never would have dreamed that I would enjoy doing Still Life, but it is sort of fun in a perverse way. I have now done 4 of these... guess you could say I have finally done something in a series.
