Not my favorite squirrel pillow- etsy has a ton of them, mostly screen printed like this one. Now, if I had a log house in the woods again...
Took my time getting out of here this morning- I was going to get a pedicure and let it dry hard in the studio while I worked, so I checked to make sure I had my Emergency Pedicure Sandals in the car and discovered they had fallen apart from the extreme heat! A glue failure! So instead I went to the studio and got out the E-6000 and alligator clamps and they are all nicely back together. I guess I should keep them inside instead.
But I did get a lot done today- my new yarn skeins are wound, I picked up and stashed stuff away. I finished my latest Artists' Book elaboration piece and have it safely in it's envelope and on it's way, and then I got down to cutting up a few more quilts. I hit the 44" mark today:
and it is looking more and ore possible that I will make it to 60" except that I am now down to a few pieces I really wasn't going to chop up. I am searching my soul. Seems like neither of my kids will give me back any quilts they have and I know that would get me over the top. I may have to think up something different for the top, or worse, cut it off a few inches. We'll see what happens. I guess I should have listened when somebody suggested spacers in-between the quilt blocks, though that would be cheating I suppose. Oh well, too late now. Progress on the wall pieces isn't chugging along at the same rate. I need some silver bias tape and am too lazy to make it- will go on the hunt tomorrow, perhaps I can find something that will work at the upholstery shop. I still have an unused stack of squares about 3" deep that I want to intersperse in between new quilt squares.
Ready for an ART PART? Here goes, it's an animal theme:
Bleeding shark tea bags!
Kiev-based glass artist Nikita Drachuk of Glass Symphony (previously) continues to crank out all matter of tiny glass objects from birds and bees to slugs and salamanders. Drachuk primarily uses a technique called lampwork, where a high-temperature torch is used to melt colorful glass rods.
And you know I'm a gal who can't resist a little taxidermy...WHAT are they doing???
With that I'm heading to Netflix-
