After eating an entire bull, a mountain lion felt so good he started roaring. He kept it up until a hunter came along and shot him.
The moral : When you're full of bull, keep your mouth shut.
Now THAT is a sconce!
I was able to spend a few hours at the studio yesterday, working on basting the big 'un together and hating every stitch I take. I figure I am maybe 1/6th done now, miles (or double orange threads!) to go before I can even pick it up. I left a good foot around the edges of fiberfill and backing so if I need it to be even bigger-shoot me now- I can add a final border. I was also able to neaten up the place somewhat but I simply cannot wait to get my space back and progress with some actual industry!
I am pondering entering Art Quilt Elements again, had great luck and sold my piece out of that show a few years ago but haven't entered since, I may have to dust off a thing or two and get it out into the world! Believe it or not, in spite of my complaining, I have finished a couple of pieces since 2013, and ya never know what they will find interesting. My last one was the story of Adam and Eve in Central Park as told through the story of the Seven Dwarves. Yeah, I found out it was basically the SAME story, then made a book out of the story- had to since it was gone forever to a party the management wouldn't divulge. Weird. Anyway, that's on tomorrow's plate.
TY sent this to me the other day- you've heard of 'parallel play' when toddlers play next to each other and don't interact at all- ell that's how TY and I are, both on our internets across the room sending each other stuff.
Just a little bit of art today, the tattoo variety:
Beautiful job, isn't it?
You must read the YouTube comments- someone recognized the area, somebody else the turbine and location, and finally the GUY! And that will surprise you too! I absolutely could NOT do this. I get vertigo just thinking of it- hmm, gonna go eat some ginger to calm down!
