Once I got past the terror of the MRI I seem to be on a roll. I am actually looking forward to surgery mid-October, getting it past me and on to the next trip, art quilt, surgery, GF cinnamon roll, commission or whatever life holds for me.
I just put Upheaval #10 up on my website. This includes more of the wonderful soy wax batik that I designed last year. And it is a tad bigger than other work which is made possible by working in sections. I could get a long arm for stitching but since I already have long arms I am sticking with what mother nature gave me!
And I keep thinking of more things I can do in my now ‘free time’. I am entrenched in what was to be the post-op time of my previously scheduled surgery. It is quite delightful to have days and days wide open for studio time.
That includes painting a boring ‘brand name’ raincoat I bought for France in the spring. I didn’t paint it then because I didn’t want to risk ruining it. Now I don’t care. If I ruin it I will just add more paint! Another task is to design a pattern from a well-loved shirt and then cut/design a new shirt from same pattern from two old shirts. (lost yet?) And of course there are more linens to dye and paint.
And so…off I go…
